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 Pittsburgh 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?

Information overload only serves to overwhelm. Never in our history has the job market changed so fast and so dramatically. One of the main challenges people face is that they lose track of who they are and what their real attributes are. Often, people of all ages have a lot more going for them than they realize themselves. Many find that career counseling or career coaching helps to uncover some of these forgotten or latent attributes. Working together, you get to explore all the elements that go into making smart career decisions, including:

  • Your natural gifts
  • Interests
  • Temperament
  • Values
  • Idiosyncrasies
  • Your most effective working environment

Your career counselor will help guide you toward confidently making precise career choices. Between the two of you, you’ll put together a confident and practical plan of action. Once completed, your attitude and outlook will likely transform and you will have renewed self-assurance and belief in yourself. Note that a good career counselor does not do any of the following:

  • Match the client with a profession and send them on their way
  • Make blanket statements or false promises
  • Assume responsibility for an individual’s career choice or behaviors

Our Thriveworks Pittsburgh career counseling and career coaching services are open, honest and upfront. Our professional and dedicated team of counselors has been helping people of all ages make better informed choices and career moves across the state for many years now. Why not give us a call today to schedule an appointment and go over your options with one of our trusted professionals.

I am so very happy with my Therapist Monica Cwynar. She is everything I could hope for since I really never did this before and didn't know what to expect. She is very understanding and easy to talk to.
