College Graduates and Young Adults

  • Have you just graduated from college and are more confused than ever about your direction?
  • Are you frustrated that your degree has not paid off and now you are stuck in a job or career that simply is not YOU with scads of debt?
  • Do you have a warrior spirit with a touch of the rebellious (diagnosed or undiagnosed ADD/ADHD) and you are in a job that magnifies your worst symptoms?

Time’s a-wasting, as they say.  If you are a college graduate who thought that simply getting that diploma would open doors and are stuck in work that has nothing to do with what you “thought” you were signing up for, you’re missing a significant piece of the career puzzle.  Or if you’re a young adult who is ready to get out of your current rut before the golden handcuffs keep you (and your mind) stuck in a place that is just wrong, help is here.

You can make the shift now, shift your mindset and start on a career path that is meant just for you.  Before you let another day go by not thoroughly enjoying what you do, take action and get the right support and guidance. A good counselor/coach will make all the difference in how you view yourself and the world and help you get started on a career path you will love.


“When I first came to my job, I thought I was secure for life.  Slowly I noticed that not only did others in my field not approve of what they were doing, after 30+ years, but I noticed that this isn’t the direction I should take.  Looking for guidance, I ended up stumbling on Shell and she opened up an entirely different perspective on the way I should look at my career.  Now I know a direction and path to take and can confidently go in that direction knowing I’ll be a much happier person!”    ~Amanda F., age 23, New Braunfels, TX.

“I was fired, let go, downsized, call it what you will.  It felt like a punch in the stomach.  I was fired on the Fourth of July in the middle of one of the worst economic downturns in history.  I was a recent college grad with two years of bartending experience under my belt and nothing more.  At the end of my work with Shell I got a job.  I am an internet marking specialist.  I am allowed to write and be creative.  I work in groups and by myself, and my office has plenty of windows.  None of this would have been possible without Shell.  Her support and guidance helped me though the darkest moments of my job search, she constantly reminded me that there was a light at the end of the tunnel and the only person who could make it brighter was me.  I thank her from the bottom of my heart.”   ~Ian M., age 24, Seattle, WA
