Young Adult’s View of Therapy

Young adults come to therapy for many reasons.

At times the decision to speak with a psychologist can be a welcome relief. In other instances, the decision can be challenging and you may wonder whether a psychologist can help. We are psychologists who provide therapy for young adults in a one-on-one individual setting. We utilize the art of therapy to create a warm and inviting space for you to express your concerns and explore your thoughts and feelings. Generally, individuals who put the time and effort into the therapy process find that they feel better and are glad they made the decision to get help.

Participating in therapy can help you change behaviors that interfere with personal and interpersonal success. Through therapy, you can learn skills that will change your lifestyle and assist you in living a more productive and fulfilled life. While there are many reasons why individuals meet with psychologists, just a few examples of situations when coming to therapy might help are when someone:

-needs help getting organized or improving their concentration
-feels sad or depressed
-feels too worried, too stressed out, or too shy
-is coping with an illness
-is dealing with difficult family or relationship changes or problems
-wants to build self-confidence

Talking to a psychologist can help you feel more supported – especially if you are feeling sad, angry, or overwhelmed by what’s been happening in your life. In short, therapy offers people support when they are going through difficult times.

Remember, talking to a psychologist is No Big Deal! It does not mean you are weak or that you are crazy. You don’t have to hide the fact that you’re going to a therapist, but you also don’t have to tell anyone if you’d prefer not to. If you need help, seeing a psychologist or someone else who can help you feel better is the right thing to do. Everyone has problems sometimes, and it’s smart to take charge and work them out.

If you have more questions just write them down and we’ll talk about them when we meet.

We look forward to meeting with you.

See you soon!
