hi Angela,
since I don't know you in person, it's very hard to say. Does your shyness keep you from interacting the way you'd like, or does it limit your conversation?

Maybe right NOW those careers would not be the right ones. But if you just LOVE the idea of, say, phys. therapy, maybe you could work on the communication and would improve as you learn the therapy part? After all, schooling would take several years. As you grow academically, you could be growing emotionally, too.

I think lots of people can improve and develop their social skills. There are many great classes you can take to get more outgoing and learn how to talk in public. For example, there are debate classes, presentation skills classes, or even drama clubs/acting lessons.

All of these things might give you experience interacting in front of and with other people.

I think it's good that your T is being realistic and giving you honest feedback on your social skills. But people CAN improve in ANYTHING, I think, esp. if they really want to! Don't take that as the final answer - even if you're not ready at this moment, you could be in the future. :)

Have you ever worked with your T on getting over the shyness and had success? If not, maybe that's something you could focus on?

Are there other careers that you're interested in?
