Young adults, individuals between the ages of 19 and 25 represent perhaps the most dynamic group in the human life cycle. They have tremendous potential for success at every turn of their decision-making path. This group, in particular, yearns for guidance and direction in a society that requires them to find independence and confidence with often times, little support for either. Young adults often have difficulty handling the stress of work, college and family pressure. Symptoms of anxiety and depression as well as feelings of loss of control and substance use are often present as threats to young adult success. Therapy at this time can help to re-direct wayward paths and address neglected patterns that prohibit essential growth and development.
