Young adulthood is characterized by a period of frequent change and exploration while balancing the responsibilities of life.
Very little is normative during this time, as young adults navigate the process of becoming an adult. Tasks that are central to young adult development include the process of achieving autonomy and defining a personal sense of identity. This process is expected to be met while balancing demands of relationships, academics, family, work, and the future. Young adults who are overwhelmed with responsibility may develop several difficulties including depression, anxiety, and relationship problems.
Whether you are college age or in early adulthood, you may benefit from engaging in therapy to manage your problems. Treatment begins by building rapport and forming a collaborative therapeutic relationship with my clients. While many clients improve after 10-20 sessions of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, determining the length of treatment is a collaborative process that depends on the client’s goals and cause and nature of presenting problems. For students who are on Winter/Summer breaks or need to take a leave of absence from school, accelerated treatment is available to provide results in a shorter period.
