Vocational rehabilitation counseling can be another link between you and everyday functioning in the world.
If you have a disability, you may feel isolated from the world going on around you. You may have questions as to “What can I do”, or “Where do I begin”. Alternatively, you may have a clear goal in mind yet still have questions about how to proceed.
The goal of rehabilitation counseling is to help you overcome certain barriers, assessing your abilities and needs, setting goals, and helping you develop strategies to address the obstacles you encounter as you take this journey to seek employment and long term financial stability.
I am a vocational rehabilitation counselor and I help people with disabilities plan careers. My background is in counseling theory and technique, including career counseling and assessment; an understanding of the psychosocial and medical aspects of disability, skills in case management, knowledge of available resources, and planning; and knowledge of technological adaptations.
