Young Adult Counseling

Overnight it seems like you’re expected to know exactly what to do with your life.  But young adulthood isn’t the same as it was when your parents were your age. There are so many different challenges and navigating this new reality can feel pretty tough.

Getting a job, making your own schedule, and calling your own shots sounded glorious. It meant that all the time and energy you’d spent as a kid growing up would finally start to pay off. Or that all of that rebellious time you had in your teen years would put you ahead of the game as an adult.

But as you get closer to this milestone it became obvious that adulthood isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You feel confused by all the responsibilities and forgot about all the benefits of finally being the person in charge. Suddenly, life turned into paying bills, finding the right relationships, and making a name for yourself.  Now you find yourself stressed out and frustrated!

There is so much pressure that comes with being an adult that it is hard to remember who you are underneath everything that is expected of you. You try to do your best, but when you’re honest with yourself, you’re getting by right now, and  you know adulthood could be so much better.
