Ages 18-25 are known as “emerging adulthood.” People in this age range are in the midst of massive developmental changes: establishing financial independence and satisfying work; clarifying their own individual guiding values and how they want to fit into the larger fabric of society; finding a way to build lifelong support systems by incorporating sexuality & romantic partnerships, friendships, and new interdependence with their families. Emerging adulthood is an ideal time for therapy. First, because the challenges are so significant, almost everyone can use assistance with the natural stress involved. Secondly, the positive changes you make now through counseling help you establish a healthy foundation for your entire adult life, with nearly endless beneficial ripple effects. Even seemingly small upgrades you make now in your relationships, self-image, or coping habits will build profound improvements over the next few decades for your health, career, marriage, and/or children. We love to be able to help people set off in the right direction… that is even better than helping them turn around and fix things later.
