Emerging and Young Adults

You are among the first generations to grow up in a world driven by digital technology. Not to mention the job landscape is rapidly shifting, you are constantly being exposed to vastly differing views on politics and religion, and there is an overall greater sense of uncertainty surrounding the future of our society. On top of all this, you are faced with an overwhelming number of options, each with its own risks and benefits, meaning that your transition from your teenage years to adulthood is not as clear-cut as past generations have been.


Times have changed.

There is no longer a prescribed life plan for you. It is now typical for individuals in their 20-30s to ask the questions “Who am I?” and “What do I want my life to look like?” These shifts have reflected significant changes in how you might relate to the world around you and how others in society view you. With these shifts a certain amount of anxiety and grief is expected.


However…

when you feel overwhelmed or underprepared to face the stress of a transition, more serious symptoms of anxiety and depression may develop and affect your mood, motivation, and decision-making skills. These types of issues can affect your social, emotional, and physical well-being and make it difficult for you to develop or sustain meaningful relationships and to work toward educational and occupational goals.


I am trained to help you…

become more aware of your emotional responses to these challenges as well as help you recognize problematic relational patterns and new ways to cope. This awareness will create new opportunities for learning more adaptive ways of relating to others and coping with life’s stressors.


in counseling with me…

you can start to feel more connected, more capable of dealing with the challenges of adulthood, and more empowered to make decisions and follow through on plans that reflect your renewed sense of self and purpose.
