Therapy for Young Adults

Do you remember being little and wishing you were a grown up, imagining you’d finally have yourself together, have fun, and have more control? And now that you’re a young adult, you’re like, what the heck is this adulting thing?! You worry about whether or not you should go to college, go straight to work, or you went to college and that career you felt promised after just didn’t work out.  You miss knowing what was planned ahead for you each school year and now it’s up to you and you have no idea what direction to go in.  You are trying to navigate a new relationship with your parents now that you’re an adult, you’re struggling with the dating world, especially since COVID deprived many of dating opportunities, you’re trying to navigate both romantic relationships and friendships. You frequently compare yourself to others your age and feel behind.  You feel like you’re not enough, feel stuck, down, anxious, experience panic attacks, and overall just feel lost.   

We hear you! This adulting thing is hard and filled with so many choices and so much unknown.  It can be scary, especially if you’re trying to do it alone.  We work with many clients this age to help cope with all of these changes. You and your therapist will develop a supportive relationship in which you will work to understand yourself more, gain confidence in yourself to make important decisions, learn what emotional obstacles might be getting in the way of becoming who you want to be, feel open and brave enough to start a romantic relationship or value yourself enough to end romantic relationships that just aren’t serving you.  Therapy will help you set a solid foundation of emotional health, stability, and balance to be able to feel fulfilled by your work life, romantic life, and with friendships. Through therapy, you can improve your relationships, experience relief from the symptoms that brought you into therapy, increase your feelings of self-worth, and live a happier, emotionally healthier, and balanced life. These are important years that will set the stage for later on in your life.
