The transition from teenager to adult is full of changes: changes in school or work, changes in living situation, changes in relationships. While this can be exciting, it can also be confusing, overwhelming, and even downright terrifying. You are trying to figure out who you are, who you want to become, and how this fits (or doesn’t) with who others want you to be.
Some common reasons that young adults come to us for therapy include:
- anxiety and depression
- stress management
- past trauma or abuse
- trouble in a relationship or a recent break-up
- strained family relationships
- difficulty making decisions about the future
We have therapists who love working with young adults. Therapy typically includes traditional “talk therapy” techniques but may also incorporate experiential activities, mindfulness exercises, “homework” assignments, and other strategies. Most importantly, therapy provides a safe, confidential space to explore your concerns and help you to reach your goals as you journey toward adulthood.
