EXPLORE - Career Coaching

Career and vocational planning is an individual experience. Sometimes it helps to talk it through with a professional. Our professional staff are trained counselors and qualified career development facilitators. Recognizing that each individual engages in career development at different stages, we strive to come alongside you in your journey and coach you in the decision-making process. We will not tell you what you should do with you life, but we will challenge and support you by listening, asking questions, and sharing relevant information. To schedule an individual counseling or coaching session, contact us by phone (503-554-2330) or email.


The foundation of a satisfying career or vocation begins with an understanding of yourself, including your interests, skills, personality, values, and passions. We offer a variety of assessments for you to choose from as you explore how you are uniquely made and what potential careers might allow you to utilize your gifts and abilities to the fullest.
