Young Adult Counseling
Are You a College or University Student or a Recent Graduate?
Do you feel like you're always living your life in a "crisis mode?" Whether you're currently working towards your degree or have graduated within the past five years or so, you are in an age group of young adults who are often stressed beyond your limits.
More than half of students today have reported that they feel overwhelmed by anxiety. College counselors can't keep up with the demand. Depression and anxiety top the list of overall health problems experienced by students--and depression is the number one reason for dropping out of school. Not surprising, since over 34% of college students have indicated suffering from depression.
Young people who have graduated and are embarking upon careers are frequently finding it difficult to pay off school loans and make ends meet. Many have moved back home with parents. Others are sharing apartments with multiple roommates. They may have graduated at the top of their class, but are disappointed or frustrated with their jobs. Their own expectations--and/or those of other people in their lives--are not being met, no matter how hard they try.
There is relief to be had through counseling. Therapists can provide tools and resources for managing stress. They can help you to develop healthy ways to cope, deal with your emotions, and move through your circumstances without destroying your health.
