Young Adults

As a young adult this can be an exciting and overwhelming time. Many people face a lot of confusion. There are a lot of firsts during this time. It's not easy to reach adulthood and realize that you're still a "beginner" at so many things. You may be tested in ways you never imagined, and worry about your ability to face different challenges. You may discover that you don't know yourself as well as you once did - you're no longer the kid you used to be.

It is normal to have questions feel challenged as you take on more responsibilities and begin reaching toward your dreams. But for a lot of people this stage of life is particularly difficult. You may find that confusion or self-doubt become paralyzing - you don't want to make a wrong move, so you stop moving. You may have had some early setbacks and mistakenly believe that you don't have what it takes to be successful.

Therapy can be a great place to make sense of what you are going through. Some of the issues we can explore are:

  • Self esteem
  • Social pressures or dynamics
  • Relationships and friendships
  • Sexuality
  • Career ideas
  • Academic stress
  • Identity issues
  • Alcohol and/or drug use
  • Family history
  • Eating disorders

Therapy at this time in your life can make a big difference in helping you find solid footing. This is a great time to learn how to tune inward, identify your feelings, needs and desires, to learn how to take care of those feelings and needs - which will ultimately guide you toward creating a life that makes you happy and fulfilled.
