Career Counseling and Coaching in Columbia, MD—Counselors and Life Coaches

Nowadays, students are leaving college with a great education, but with that education comes thousands of dollars of debt. It is essential for these students to leave college and find a great job in order to start paying back their debt. However, even though you have been in school for four long years, few people leave knowing exactly what they want to do. Finding a job that fits your career is challenging enough. Actually choosing a career can be even tougher. Whether you are a recent college graduate, someone right out of high school, or an adult looking to make a career change, too many folks start their professional lives as people who are unemployed or under-employed. There are also those people who are professionally challenged from the outset. The pace of life is so fast these days that by the time some students graduate they have already got outdated skills. And there are older workers who find it hard to keep their skills updated.

A bad career choice can result in you becoming a part of a dying industry. There is enough emotional turmoil in life as it is, without the added burden of career blunders. There has never been a better time to seek the services of career counseling. Getting proper guidance before, during, and long after an education is a smart move for anyone. There are two big questions that people should ask themselves when they find they’re at a crossroads in their lives. How you answer this question will help to determine your path: Is my primary focus a high-paying job or job satisfaction?

With so much job uncertainty around, it’s tempting to become salary-focused; however, it’s important to remember that you will be spending a long time working. Five or six days a week is a lot of time to spend being miserable. It’s important to be mindful of this fact if you choose a career that pays well but offers little in the way of job satisfaction. Not being satisfied with your career could cause unhappiness in other places in your life. Your career is a huge part of who you are. You want to make sure that you love what you do. Thriveworks Columbia wants to guide you in making the best decisions for you! Vocational counseling is a good way to allow someone other than yourself to help guide your decision-making process.

Striking a Balance

A good career choice is often about striking the right balance. It’s all about finding job satisfaction with an acceptable salary. Career counseling can be useful here. It helps people who are confused and overwhelmed to make better informed decisions about their future.

Work is an important part of your life; however, you want to balance work and play. If you are struggling with the balance between work and home, we can help guide you on what a good balance looks like for you.

She helped the light shine in!

★★★★★
I struggled with self loathing and dark attitudes about myself for many years. My attitudes were affecting my relationships on a variety of levels. I felt like a failure. I was afraid to take my life but I didn’t want to live any more. My wife suggested I get counseling, but I resisted thinking I could fix me. It did not work. Helene Diop took me through a year of counseling via FaceTime that finally shed light on my dark experience. She helped me put my life in perspective and actively illuminated my understanding of why I felt the way I did. She provided clear, fruitful strategies for thinking that have changed my life. She, truly, helped the light shine in during my darkest hour! I’m a happy man, today!
