Young Adults

Young AdultOur young adult clients typically are developmentally struggling to make that transition from adolescence to young adulthood. They may have attempted college only to find themselves after some period of time getting tripped up with managing their day to day responsibilities, the required academic workload, the freedoms from being away from home or without parental supervision. They may have found themselves in a quandary with juggling the world of work and maintaining a healthy lifestyle; or finding a group of peers who are of good influence to each other and not headed down a destructive path. There are multiple scenarios of our young adults struggling to just find, let alone own their adulthood. They may be having difficulties with the following:

  • Self-identity
  • Interest development
  • Self-esteem
  • Completion of tasks or goals
  • Sense of focus/direction in life
  • Work ethic/occupational skills
  • Underutilization of strengths and talents
  • Self-reliance and autonomy
  • Independent living skills
  • Motivation
  • Accountability and responsibility for self
  • Immature coping skills
  • Substance use/abuse/dependency/addiction
  • Technology dependence or abuse (gaming, gambling, social networks, pornography)
  • Educational performance (high school, college or vocational)
  • Friendships and maladaptive peer association
  • Sexual identity
  • Setting healthy boundaries for self and others
  • Familial relations
