Career and Vocational Counseling

Many people often struggle with the idea of what they want to be when they grow up. This is not just isolated to clients in their teens or twenties but also older individuals who are in a career that is not suited to them or that is causing them significant distress. The field of Counseling Psychology was a by-product of the World Wars, and was designed to help soldiers resume their lives after military service. Today, this field has evolved to include the ability to help individuals identify areas that coincide with their values, beliefs, traits, and views. Identifying these areas increases the likelihood of them finding a program of study or vocation that will bring them years of success and enjoyment. Utilizing the latest research, our team at Acadiana Medical Psychological Services (AMPS) can finally help answer the question, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Call us to set up a career counseling session and evaluation; we have locations in Lafayette and Eunice, Louisiana for your convenience.
