Being a young adult has always been an adventurous and yet challenging phase in one’s life. In 2022, going through a global pandemic since 2020, being a young adult has been harder than ever. If you feel burned out and exhausted, like you are running a marathon but never getting to the finish line – you are not alone.
You walked into young adulthood with excitement and curiosity. But lately, you have been feeling anxious, confused, and overwhelmed.While this new stage is filled with once-in-a-lifetime memories, it also brings on complicated questions. And, each of those questions demands answers. Because of this, you may find yourself feeling intimated and insecure about this new chapter.
Our therapists will tailor your treatment goals to your individual challenges. However, there are some common issues we see with our young adult clients that include:
Therapy for young adults is meant for those between the ages of 16 and 25 years old. Those in adolescence, between 16 and 17, are also in a unique place in life. So, in our therapy practice, we serve adolescents and young adults. Our services are individually tailored because we don’t want to simply give you the tools to help you manage the responsibilities of this new chapter. Our young adult therapists want you to feel excited about everything and thrive!
In therapy for young adults, we want to get to know YOU! Not the version of you that your parents want you to be or the society tells you to be. We want to learn about your feelings, thoughts, and things you are struggling with. Further, we want to know about the things that keep you up at night and the things that you want to achieve for yourself. Because we know that the most important relationship you can have in life is one with yourself.
At our Los Angeles therapy practice, one of our core treatment goals is to address your inner dialogue. This is the monologue that runs in your head all day long. It tells you what things you can or cannot do, and the places you do and don’t belong. We want to make sure that you get out of your own way by debunking any self-limiting beliefs you may have. Our therapists offer practical and thoughtful feedback that will help you look at things objectively. And, it will help you discover new perspectives and creative solutions.
Another key component of therapy is to reflect on your past experiences. In fact, the past provides information about the present. No matter what stage of life you are in, any unresolved issues from one’s past will impact their current life. The goal of therapy is to understand what you’ve been through. Then, find solutions for what you’re still going struggling with. When you get control of your thoughts and feelings, you will have clarity of how your past is shaping your present. You will start working towards a more authentic life.
Here are few other positive outcomes we will support you in gaining when attending therapy for adolescents and young adults.
It takes courage to ask for help and you don’t have to figure it all out on your own. Our therapists are here to empower you so that you gain the insight and confidence to live your best life. With consistency and commitment, our clients notice improvements after a few sessions. Depending on your needs, therapy for young adults can be short-term or long-term support. However, our therapists are happy to meet you at the level of care you need. Further, we are ready to make appropriate therapeutic recommendations to best support you and your quality of life.
The therapy process starts with a free 20-minute consultation. You will have the opportunity to elaborate on any experiences that you wish to address with our therapists. Then, you will learn more about our approach to therapy and our costs.
During the first 2-3 sessions, we will go through the intake process. During this, your therapist will gather all the necessary information to create a strong treatment plan for you. This comprehensive intake evaluation will help you and your therapist discuss the underlying factors that get in the way of reaching your fullest potential. Again, our services are always individualized to meet your needs.
Ongoing sessions are designed to deepen your relationship with yourself and others. The goal of therapy is not to remove all obstacles and guarantee no future mistakes. Instead, the goal is to give you the tools and insight to help you navigate what life throws your way. After therapy, you will have the peace and strength to go through life with more authentic, supportive, and safe relationships.
Our therapists use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). All modalities are evidence-based treatments for anxiety and stress management. Further, each has unique qualities and focus while being complementary for an effective outcome.
Right now, the challenges of being a young adult may be holding you back from living wholeheartedly. But with the help of our therapist, you can develop clarity on the direction of your life. And with support, you’ll build more peaceful and joyous relationships.
You have so much to achieve. And whether you know it or not, you are capable and worthy of pursuing your goals and dreams so that you can create the life you want. The confidence lies within you to change. You can learn the skills you need to feel more resilient and develop authentic relationships with yourself and others
