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 Sterling Heights 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?

When we’re young, we dream about becoming an astronaut, doctor, teacher, fashion designer. And some of us go on to pursue these young dreams. But many of us pursue other career paths, as our interests have changed, or we’ve recognized the need to consider other factors that eliminate our first job interests. For example: An individual who wanted to be a doctor growing up, might now remove this from his list of possibilities due to the amount of schooling it takes or its time-consuming hours. This person might prioritize spending time with as much time with family as possible instead!

There is a wide range of considerations when it comes to choosing a career path and the right job for you, from what will make you happy to what will pay rent and allow you as well as your family to live comfortably. Finding a job that fills all of your wants and needs can be difficult—fortunately, though, there are people who have gone down a certain career path that enables them to help you choose yours! These people are called career counselors or career coaches. And they bring relevant skills and experience to the table to help you choose your career.

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” –Dwayne Johnson

What Is Career Counseling? How Does Career Coaching Work?

Career counselors can help many different kinds of people find the career path that is best suited for them. They can also help people find greater success and fulfillment in their current job. Because one’s career is important at any age, career coaches can help people who are recent college graduates, as well as those who are only several years from retirement. Whatever the case, your career counselor will help you explore your options and make the decision that will best benefit your health and happiness. They might ask you to explore the following important questions to help you make this decision:

  • What career opportunities are available to me?
  • What kind of job will make me happy?
  • What career will I succeed in?
  • What kind of job will allow me to live comfortably?
  • What careers am I interested in?
  • What skills do I have?
  • Am I looking for local opportunities or am I willing to travel?
  • How important is the commute?

My overall experience has been as expected when dealing with behavior healthcare. There is no real care for the patient and their needs. I spent an hour on the phone with a call center rep from the billing department who said I had no insurance on file, then proceeded to transfer me to the correct department who said I did. I have been without medication that was prescribed on Monday. When I received a call back from the psychiatrist, it seemed that your company forgot to send it over. That is unacceptable behavior when it comes to dealing with any customer.

It's a wonderful experience working with Cornelia Golden. She presents a healthy balance of comfortability and professionalism. She listens with the intent to hear what is being said and yet hear what's not being said. Cornelia has a very calming presence and I feel both confident in her counseling skills and that my concerns are professionally cared for. She is a very capable counselor. Clients will greatly benefit from working with her. I am happy to write this review for Ms. Cornelis Golden.
