Individual Therapy for Young Adults

Common Struggles for Young Adults

The transitional period between the teenage years and adulthood can be a troubling and confusing time. Typically, young adults will enter college and move out of their parents home to begin a life of independence. At times, this independence can come along with increased stress and pressure to “figure out life” on their own. Additionally, there are some young adults who have difficulty transitioning from their teenage years into adulthood and hold back from leaving their primary residence and refrain from attending college. Regardless of the path taken during young adulthood, some of the common struggles seen in young adults are:

  • Difficulties with peers and social situations

  • Fears of independence and success or failure

  • Personal goals and paths of life

  • Relationship/early marriage concerns

  • Stress and time management

  • Alcohol and drug use

The Quarter-Life Crisis

Entering into the “real world” can be difficult. Transitioning from having daily parental guidance and a definite structured environment and schedule to new freedom and responsibility can cause stress, fear, and anxiety to rush into one’s life. It is important for a young adult to understand how to cope with stressful and intimidating situations. The situations that arise during young adulthood can be met with love, patience, knowledge, and skills. Coping skills for young adults can vary and many will work for a variety of different events.

Interpersonal skills can support feelings of isolation and loneliness, as well as social anxiety and peer pressure. Stress management can help prevent or reduce alcohol or drug use, difficulty succeeding in a career or college path, and more. Increased self-esteem skills and psycho-education can provide a positive outlook on not only one’s self-image, but also one’s self-worth and abilities.

Therapy Santa Barbara is here to support young adults through this period, to show them or you that the path of young adulthood does not need to be a difficult one and that they are worth the work and time it takes to make a sustainable change.
