Counseling for Young Adults

You have graduated from high school and are now officially an adult out in the world! So now what? Being a young or “emerging” adult can be hard. During this time, you are still individuating, or learning more about what makes you, well, YOU! You are also differentiating yourself more from your family of origin as you navigate your way through the world as an independent person.

This process can be challenging and at
times can bring up new and sometimes
complicated emotions.

Counseling can help you navigate those feelings and work through past and present experiences to help set you on the path to a fully realized adult! We will be your advocate and cheerleader as you work through finding your identity, regulating stress and anxiety, or expanding emotional awareness. We sit with many clients as work their way through individuating, career planning, family difficulties and relational challenges.

We are committed to providing tools and
support for our clients to become independent adults.

Frequently Asked Questions

You have legal access to your child's health information, however, we ask for most information to be private to help build trust with your teenager. The exceptions to this are concerning safety. In cases of suicidality, homicidality, child abuse, and elder abuse, we will have to involve the necessary resources to keep your teen safe. Lydia answers this question more thoroughly in the video.

While working with your teen, we might suggest family sessions in order to communicate, problem-solve, and create a better connection. We will mediate any conflict and encourage vulnerability in order to be heard and understood. We may also suggest parent coaching sessions using the information we've gathered from your teen to give you more ideas on parenting them. Lydia answers this question more thoroughly in the video.

Seeing changes in your teen's behavior and mood is dependent on the problems presented, goals for therapy, the resistance to the therapeutic process, and the course of growth. Change takes time and consistent effort. Things with your teen may get worse before they get better, but any decline doesn't mean that counseling isn't working. Parental involvement and consistent attendance are closely tied with progress. I answer this question more thoroughly in the video.

Let’s Journey Together

Being a teenager is difficult, plain and simple. During this time period, there is so much growth emotionally, mentally, and physically. Because of a process called individuation, teens often push their parents away and rely more on their peers. Parents often feel out of control and completely terrified. This fear is not unwarranted. It might feel like you can't protect them especially with social media, online predators, pornography, and other technology keeping parents disconnected from a teen's online life. I am a Young adult Counselor in Franklin TN who helps young adults escape unhealthy cycles and become more connected.

Counseling for young adults can provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals in this age group to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Young adulthood can be a time of great change and growth, but it can also be a time of stress and uncertainty. Counseling can help young adults navigate this time of transition by providing them with tools and skills to cope with their challenges and make positive changes in their lives.

Some common issues that young adults may address in counseling include:

  • Mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, and stress
  • Relationships and interpersonal conflicts
  • Career concerns and job-related stress
  • Identity exploration and questioning
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Life transitions such as graduating from college, moving to a new city, or starting a family

Counselors can help young adults by providing a non-judgmental and empathetic space to discuss their struggles and work towards resolving them. They can also offer coping strategies and problem-solving techniques to help young adults manage their challenges more effectively. Through counseling, young adults can gain a deeper understanding of themselves and learn to lead more fulfilling and satisfying lives.
