Baltimore Career Counseling

Career Counseling and Coaching in Baltimore, MD

In a perfect world, we would intuitively know what career was right for us. All we would have to do then would be to pursue it. But we don’t live in a perfect, and quite often choosing a career or changing one’s profession is anything but simple. For some it is tough, for others it’s daunting to the point of impossible. Nothing is impossible of course, but it can feel like that at times for those who have lost their way. This is where career counseling can really be of help.

The good news is that there are many vocational counseling services around these days, such as career counseling at Thriveworks Baltimore, MD. All these services are there to help folks take charge of their lives and make better decisions about their career path.

Understand the Pitfalls of Job Searching

Three of the main psychological challenges people face include:

  • Fear and uncertainty of the unknown
  • Lack of awareness
  • Indecision

Any of these things can toss up a roadblock and stall a person’s progress. Sometimes they may not know why they’re having problems with choosing a career or securing a job. All they know is that they’re finding the task unpleasant, daunting and stressful.

It’s Good to Talk to a Professional

The more people run problems over in their own heads, the worse a situation can become. The only way to take positive action is when there’s a positive outlook. Sinking deeper into the problem will never find anyone the solutions they’re looking for. This is why it can be so good to talk to someone else, especially someone qualified to help.

Career counseling offers a place to explore the various factors that contribute to career choices. The first thing a good counselor will do is discuss the individual’s attributes:

  • Interests
  • Abilities
  • Determine their personality type
  • Look at their values

Once the above areas are covered, the foundation is set to move on and build a specific plan of action. Call Baltimore career counseling today and set up an appointment. One of our trained career counselors can go over your occupational options with you in great detail.

Someone who understands

In these tense and uncertain times, it’s really helpful to be able to talk to someone who I know shares similar experiences, can understand where I’m coming from, and can help me understand how to do the best I can to improve myself in my circumstances. Tia is a great listener with a gentle, calming demeanor. She knows how to laugh and how to really listen. She’s really helped me through some tough times and encouraged me throughout. Don’t know what I’d do without her!

Sandy has been very helpful

As first-generation immigrants we have a touch time raising kids in US. Being caught between two different cultures, our teenager daughter intuitively rejects parents' culture and is often unrespectful toward parents and her sibling. But we as parents have no relatives in US for counseling. Talking to Sandra has been very helpful as she instructed us how to communicate with our confused teenager, how to guide her through the difficult time. Thank you, Sandy!
