THERAPY FOR YOUNG ADULTS & COLLEGE STUDENTS

Are You Struggling with the Unique Challenges of Transitioning from Teenager to Adult?

  • Are you experiencing a major life transition and feel lost about which options are best for you?

  • Are you looking for meaning in this new stage of life and can’t seem to identify what is important to you going forward?

  • Do you find yourself isolated, hopeless, or confused in regards to the affect of COVID-19?

  • Are you feeling overwhelmed about all the responsibility that you have to suddenly take on?

  • Are you are struggling with trying to figure out what your plan for life is?

  • Do you feel pressure from family, friends, and society to have it all figured out?

  • Are you comparing yourself to others?

  • Are your expectations feel different than your reality?

Young adulthood brings with it a unique set of challenges that may inspire growth and resiliency if approached in a healthy, informed way. During this phase of life, you transition from student to professional and your expectations of yourselves may also transition. 

You may feel the pressure of making decisions about the rest of your life. These pressures can leave you feeling excited, stressed, happy, confused, fearful, stuck and overwhelmed. This can lead to anxiety and depression, difficulty making decisions, and disorganization. It can also lead to unhealthy coping, using drugs or alcohol to numb, conflict with relationships, poor decision making and even thoughts of suicide.
