Starting Career counseling

What is Career counseling?

Career counseling, sometimes called career coaching, helps individuals make informed career decisions. This type of counseling is led by one of our Greenville therapists who is trained to provide career development support.

How does Career counseling work?

Career counseling works to help you navigate your professional career and offer valuable information, such as required skill sets and/or education, regarding a particular position you may be considering. The following are common focuses of conversation that will help your career counselor best help you:

  • Job environment preferences
  • Growth potential
  • Career goals, short- and long-term
  • Personality type
  • Desired lifestyle
  • Potential earnings of a given career

Is Career counseling conducted in person or online?

Career counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Career counseling last?

Career counseling can last for weeks, months, or even years. It all depends on the goals that you're looking to accomplish and whether you continue to want/need that partner to reach your goals. Either way, our career counselors are here and ready to help you get on the right track.

Is Your Career Working for You?

As a child, you imagined what you’d be when you grew up. You even pretended to be that person. Your parents and teachers said you could be whatever you wanted to be when you grew up. It was exciting. It all seemed so simple then.

But it’s not that simple today. Finding a career, let alone a meaningful one, is much harder that you imagined. Whether you’re beginning a career, looking for a change, or need a career tune-up, there are so many things to consider. If you’re like most people, you might be asking:

How do I find the right job for me?
Where can I get career advice?
How can I find my dream job?
Is it possible to find a job that I truly love?

If you’ve asked any of these questions, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re in good company. Countless people have come to a point in their lives where they’re just not sure how to find a meaningful career. No one wants to spent time spinning their wheels in a job that’s not going anywhere – or in a career that doesn’t make them happy.

How Can I Find a Meaningful Career?

What are the skills and abilities that set you apart from other job candidates? Do you know your strengths and can you identify areas that may need some improvement? If you’re not sure, career coaching may provide an excellent opportunity to evaluate your career goals and determine the right career path for you. It’s time to begin a partnership with Thriveworks Career Coaching of Greenville. Unlock your potential by creating a goal-oriented career plan with your Thriveworks Career Coach.

Not all career coaches are the same. At Thriveworks Career Coaching of Greenville, you’ll work with a coach who has experience with creating a solution-focused plan for finding the meaningful career you’ve always wanted. Our coaches are also clinically trained and fully licensed mental health professionals; so, if you want to strengthen your overall mental health and wellness, you’ll be able to cover clinical topics with your career coach, too – saving you the hassle of finding someone new to work with.

Career Coaching is Exciting!

This time in your life doesn’t have to be a bad memory. You have options. You can choose to remain stuck in a dead-end job with little-to-no meaning and enjoyment or you can evaluate your goals and make a plan for your future. Career coaching is an exciting opportunity – don’t pass this one up. Call Thriveworks Career Coaching today to schedule your first appointment. (864) 952-4048

I had a good therapist for 3 sessions and unfortunately, she had to leave the area for family reasons. I met for the first time with my new therapist and it went well, so all is good. So far, Thriveworks has been wonderful !

Kathy Hope is certainly committed to following Jesus Christ and is grounded in her beliefs and knowledge of the Bible. She offers wise counsel based on these beliefs, but is nonjudgmental and attentive to listening to others with compassion, understanding and care. She is thoughtful and wise in her counsel. She can be counted on to be trustworthy and ethical.

Kathleen Horn was so understanding and non-judgmental. She was really nice to work with and had a way of making me look at and think about things differently. She worked with me on coping skills and changing my thoughts so I could change behaviors and feel better. She helped me through a tough time and now I feel a lot less depressed and anxious. I would go to her again. Thank you for all of your help!

LaKimberly Dowdell was an excellent counselor. She was a great listener, while at the same time knowing precisely the right moment to provide her expert knowledge. She is very personable and caring, yet knows what to say to support the change you are seeking. I highly recommend her.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

Emily has been an amazing help in my life for the past couple of years. She helped me see my worth when I couldn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)
