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 Milford 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 a counselor to help you reach your goals. Either way, our career counselors are here and ready to help you get on the right track.

Gina is an incredibly skilled and talented clinician. She has the unique gift of making clients immediately feel safe and understood even upon first meeting. Her passion for the work is palpable. Her knowledge is vast and her approach is sensitive, gentle, supportive and compassionate, yet direct. Gina helped me navigate a tremendously challenging time in my life and afforded me the confidence to pursue personal goals that had initially felt unattainable. She taught me tangible skills to navigate anxiety and feelings of overwhelm during our work together and our sessions were always insightful and productive. Gina will lead you on a path to self discovery without all of the therapy lingo and jargon and will always help you to feel as though you’re the expert on your own life- because you are. I couldn’t recommend Gina more. A true diamond in the rough!
