About Me

LaRae Jome, Ph.D., LP

My passion is helping people create satisfying working lives. Work - whether paid or unpaid - is an important part of our lives. I have always been fascinated by how people make career choices and navigate work and life changes.

After finishing my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Akron, I worked as a professor at the State University of New York at Albany for about 15 years. I taught graduate students in psychology and conducted research on career decision making.

In 2014, my husband, two kids, and I packed up and moved to Minnesota to return to our midwestern roots. I continued my teaching career working with doctoral students at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota.

While I loved teaching, I felt called to make my own career change and spend more time providing career counseling services. In 2016 I opened my private practice and am thrilled to report that I am running my practice full-time.

As a psychologist, I take a broad approach to career counseling. I provide career guidance as career coaches do, and I also understand human behavior and mental health concerns. I apply research-based approaches and strategies to help people successfully navigate difficult career decisions and work situations.
