Therapy for Young Adults

How Can Therapy Help Young Adults?

To be between 18-29 years old is not the same as it was for our parents. Emerging and young adulthood may not have even been considered a thing then. Extensive research and interest in this age group have shed light that the challenges and experiences emerging and young adults face are unique to them, just as childhood, adolescence, and adulthood have their own particular challenges. To be challenged and to struggle is normal, but sometimes we need some extra support.

Common Concerns:

  • Adulting
  • Anxiety
  • Building & maintaining friendships
  • College
  • Dating
  • Depression
  • Existential crisis
  • Feeling lost
  • Feeling behind
  • Financial stress
  • High sensitivity
  • Imposter Syndrome
  • Environmental Concerns
  • Relationships with family
  • Identity
  • Sexual orientation
  • Navigating Social media
  • Spiritual/religious beliefs
  • Substance use
  • Transpersonal experiences
  • Trauma
  • Worthiness
  • Racial & Cultural concerns
  • Isolation

This list is not exhaustive, as the lives of emerging and young adults are ever-changing and growing more complex. 

How Therapy Helps

Therapy may be necessary when problems do not resolve on their own with time or support from others. Sometimes therapy can also be helpful just to have a sounding board and extra support from someone who understands your concerns because they were there too and have found some relief and understanding.  We get it. Therapy is a relationship and in the safety of this relationship, you are given an opportunity to express yourself freely, explore the world and your experiences, and develop autonomy and confidence without fear of judgment or harm.
