    Young Adults

    Are you a young adult struggling to “figure out what to do with the rest of your life?” Do you often find yourself stressing about the future and feel powerless or indecisive where you are right now? 

    Most of us remember our young adult years as a combination of great fun and burgeoning freedom, but it’s also a time of tremendous stress. You may also feel a greater need to perform well academically, choose the “right” job, and fit into social circles all while facing an ever-changing economic and socio-political climate. All of this stress can take its toll on a young adult’s mental health and overall well-being.

    Common Life Challenges for Young Adults

    Young adults can often face some serious life challenges that impact their mental health and well-being.

    • Loss – Loss can come in the form of a death of a loved one, including a pet, and it can also come in the form of parental separation or divorce. A loss also happens when a family moves to a new location and the teen must go to a new school.
    • Stress – A little stress is normal in life and can even be motivating. But too much stress can cause burnout at any age. Many young adults face tremendous amounts of stress to do well in school, hold down a job, and be accepted by their peers.
    • Identity Exploration – Young adults are often in the process of discovering themselves, which could be a confusing and creative process! Therapy can be a great place to explore various intersections of identity in a safe, nonjudgmental environment. 

    This is not an exhaustive list of reasons why a young adult may want to speak with a therapist by any means. If you think you could benefit from therapy, please reach out to me.
