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 North Charleston 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.

Need more help deciding?

Think about your day to day, as well as your typical work week. How much time do you spend at your job? A large portion of the US spends 8-9 hours a day, or a total of 40-45 hours a week, at work. In other words, we spend a lot of our time at our jobs! Ideally, this means that we would enjoy what we do for a living. However, for many of us, the opposite is true.

Your career serves multiple purposes. First and foremost, it serves to support you and your family, financially. But that isn’t all. Your job should also bring you joy, success, fulfillment, and meaning. At the very least, it should allow you to utilize your best skills and engage in activities that you enjoy. If your current job does not bring you this financial security, joy, success, fulfillment, and/or meaning, it might be worth exploring different career paths—of which you can do with a career counselor.

I have been seeing a therapist via Thriveworks every other week for several months and I couldn't be happier. The intake form was easy to fill out and somehow managed to put me with someone who works perfectly with me. She works at my pace, she understands and works towards our goals, and she helps me to see things more clearly as we process the issues at hand. She never 'tells me' what the issue is or how to solve but instead she leads me there so I can see it on my own as that is much more effective. I was very nervous about online therapy but after this experience with Kristen, I would recommend it to everyone, regardless of the severity of their issues. Kristen is a true professional and can ebb and flow as I am ready to process things. She has been a game changer for me, my family, and my colleagues.

I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I've struggled with depression most of my life. Emily Frichtl has helped me in so many ways. I felt safe with her and over time I learned to trust her, which was hard for me. I still have a lot of work to do in learning to live with the things I've been through but I wouldn't be in a more accepting head space without the work we've done. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Jennifer Brown for a number of years and have found her to be caring, compassionate, and conscientious. She has an empathetic personality and truly cares for her clients and wants what is best for them. One of her greatest skills is her ability to ask "the right question" to help you find YOUR correct answer. Her support during the time my Mom was passing helped me get through a very difficult time. No hesitancy in recommending.
