You Finally Made It - Or Did You?

You graduated, got a good job, an apartment, a car.  Your Insta looks amazing—friends, travel, partying!  Everyone thinks you've got it all going on, but secretly you worry that they’ll figure out the truth—you have no idea where you’re headed right now. 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, work hard at sports or music or dance—and everything will fall into place. Except it’s not what you thought. Now you are the uber-responsible person at work, which just means you get more work piled on top of you. You fantasize about starting over in a different career, or just never showing back up at work.

You’ve known your friends for a long time, but it feels like they don’t quite “fit” any more. Your dating life is full of people who aren’t very serious and don’t seem to really value you. All those shots of you laughing at the beach, or day-drinking with your friends at the Bungalow don’t tell the real story of your life in Los Angeles…

Every aspect of your life feels uncomfortable and honestly, it’s exhausting to think about.

Is This All There Is?

NO!!!  "Adulting" doesn't need to be a grind! Even though the responsibility can be heavy sometimes, you can celebrate the freedom of adulting by defining it in your own terms.

This is the time of your life when you look at where you’ve been heading and reassess. This is normal. You are right where you are supposed to be, even though it sometimes feels like shit. (therapy expression—I went to grad school for that) 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. I think you’re ready.

Your story is just beginning…
