Therapy for Emerging Adults

Discovering your path to adulthood 

Do you feel...

… stressed and anxious facing many uncertainties at this stage in your life? Maybe you are feeling isolated facing major transitions such as moving away to college or finding employment.  Perhaps you are uncertain about making some big decisions right now.  The independence you experience could be exciting and yet daunting at the same time.  

Emerging adulthood, a unique developmental period

Emerging adults, typically 18 to 25, face a variety of challenges as they transition from adolescence to full-fledged adulthood.  People in this age group are described as being “in-between” life stages – they are starting to move away from the struggles of adolescence to learning how to be independent while still closely connected with their family of origin. 

Emerging adults are often asking questions and having feelings such as: Who am I? What career choices are best for me? Where do I want to go to school or work? What do I want in my partner? I feel excited yet overwhelmed by the opportunities ahead of me. Do I have to choose between my parents and the decisions I make in life?  Sometimes I feel gripped by fears and feel immobilized when it comes to decision-making. 

How I can help

I have many years of experiences working with the emerging adult population since 2008.  I specialize in emerging adult psychotherapy, providing you with the safe space and support you need to work through the challenges you face.  I will be your guide, journeying with you through this pivotal period.  I use an eclectic multimodal approach, utilizing strength-based, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and relational psychodynamic strategies.  Clients have said that therapy with me is judgement free and empathic.  I have helped many of my clients:      

  • Find directions in life when faced with major transitions (career, partner, etc)
  • Work on overcoming imposter syndrome 
  • Heal from childhood pain/ trauma so they can experience the joys of life
  • Manage anxiety and depression and other psychological issues
  • Improve self-esteem and confidence  
  • Grow in relationships with their partner and loved ones
