Overcome Barriers

There can be lots of different barriers that hold you back from finding your life/career path. Some common concerns that impact finding your life/career direction could be related to social, personal, or informational challenges.
  • Family expectations/events
  • Pressure from relationships
  • Struggles with social fears
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low self-confidence
  • Fears about the future
  • Low motivation
  • Lacking self-awareness
  • Lacking career and academic information
  • Struggle to know how to pay for school

Career counselors help you work through these barriers. Talking through barriers can free you to better understand yourself, your life/career path, and how to build relationships to support your life/career direction. Sometimes career counselors refer you to mental health counseling if your concerns become more personal rather than related to your life/career direction.
