You Finally Made It - Or Did You?
You graduated, got a job, an apartment, a car. But it isn't all you thought it would be. Everyone thinks you've got it all going on, but you are worrying so much you can't get a good night's sleep. Everyone else in Los Angeles seems so confident, but you are tormented by anxiety about your future. You wonder- "Why do I feel so anxious and confused? What is my next step? How do I have the life and relationships I really want?"
For most of your life everything was pretty straightforward- do well in school, maybe pursue a sport, music, or a hobby, and when you graduate everything will fall into place. Except it didn't. Maybe the job didn't turn out to be as wonderful as it sounded, maybe you miss having time and energy for sports or hobbies, maybe it was a lot easier to have a relationship in college, without the pressures you have in your life right now. You have fond memories of those annoying dorm mates- you never realized how lonely it could be to live on your own in Los Angeles. Maybe you've been adulting for a while now, and are beginning to wonder why it just doesn't feel that rewarding. Even those crazy Saturday nights- the ones you can't quite completely remember- aren't as much fun as they used to be.
Is This All There Is?
NO!!! "Adulting" doesn't need to be a grind! You can celebrate the freedom of adulting by defining it in your own terms.
Therapy will help you take a step back and re-evaluate what is working and what isn't. You will get tools to manage the stress, and to communicate with the people who are important to you. You can clarify your goals, and create a plan to reach them. My clients create goals in the first session and right away begin on the path to creating the unique life that will bring them joy and meaning.
