Young Adult Therapy
The transition into college and/or out on your own can be a challenging, confusing and even frightening experience. Change is hard for almost everyone. And, while the major life transition into adulthood comes with an abundance of new opportunities, it also comes with new responsibilities, challenges and expectations. You might also struggle with depression, anxiety, and low confidence as you attempt to navigate a bigger and broader world without the same guidance and support offered by family or school as you received when you were younger.
At this stage of life, some of the most important questions that you might ask yourself concern self-identity, direction, and desires for the future. While these can be exciting questions, they can also come charged with uncertainty and fear. One of the main goals of therapy for young adults is to explore and address these questions as you begin to really identify who you are, what’s important to you, where you want to go and how you’d like to get there.
You don’t have to navigate this difficult transition on your own. Life is challenging, but it’s possible to see challenges as opportunities to build confidence and to learn from your experiences. With help and a willingness to get to know yourself better and make positive changes, you can experience relief and create a positive life path forward.
