Adolescent/Young Adult Therapy
Adolescent/Young Adult therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on helping address the unique challenges and experiences people face during the adolescent (typically individuals between the ages of 12 and 18) and young adult years (typically individuals between the ages of 18 and 25+). Adolescence and young adulthood are critical periods of development marked by significant changes in an individual's physical, cognitive, and emotional functioning. During this time, people may experience a wide range of challenges. Therapy can help young adults navigate many of these challenges, including anxiety, depression, increased sense of self-efficacy, life transitions, academic struggles, relationship problems, and others.
Psychotherapy for young adults is a collaborative process that involves the individual and possibly their parents or guardians when appropriate. The therapy space helps creates a safe and supportive environment for the individual to express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns. Therapy helps the individual identify and develop coping skills to better manage their emotions, improve communication skills, and build healthy relationships.
