Therapy for Young Adults can help you move forward.

It all used to be enough: a job that paid the bills, a comfortable, safe relationship, and a cozy little apartment. These were always supposed to be “temporary placeholders” while you figured everything out. But now you desperately need more purpose and meaning. You want to look forward to your future rather than live day to day.

It seems like everyone else is happily moving into their future —graduating, getting married, buying homes, starting families, and leaving to pursue exciting careers. Meanwhile, you’re frozen in place by uncertainty and insecurity, unable to make changes and move forward in your own life.

You feel like you’re getting left behind. You’re lonely, unhappy, and frustrated with yourself. You just can’t figure out what to do with your life or how to change direction.

That inner struggle between wanting to move forward and the fear of taking the first step creates a lot of unhealthy anxiety and stress. It’s almost impossible to make any decisions when emotional turmoil clouds your mind.

At Evanston Counseling, we understand how challenging and overwhelming this phase in your life can be. We’re here to help you change course and create new paths that bring more purpose and fulfillment.

There are so many options: further your education, start a new career, take your relationship to the next level, or start your family. It’s exciting to imagine where you could be a year from now; don’t let the fear of making a mistake hold you back!

The counselors at Evanston Counseling understand where you are right now. We’ve helped many young adults move beyond their self-doubt and indecision to actively pursue their goals and dreams. We can help guide you on that journey too.

Release Your Fear and Embrace Your Future Through Therapy for Young Adults

Seeking help finding your purpose might feel uncomfortable or even immature. You’re an adult, after all. Yet the fact you’re here shows remarkably mature insight. You need help with your anxiety, stress, and getting unstuck; reaching out to a professional therapist is a wise step in the right direction.

Through counseling, we’ve helped many young adults in your situation understand themselves more deeply and learn to trust the important decisions they make.

Explore Emotions That Have Shaped Your Past Choices:

During our therapy sessions, we’ll help uncover the thoughts and feelings that guided your decisions in the past. Especially when worry and anxiety over change led to “safe” options that didn’t align with your true desires and aspirations.

For example, we may examine why you stay in a relationship that doesn’t bring you true joy and contentment or why you hang on to an unfulfilling job. Or perhaps we might examine why your can’t find that special someone or why you jump from job to job.

Through counseling, you’ll learn to recognize negative thought patterns holding you back and gain the confidence to take the calculated risks we all need to take as adults.

Uncover the Root Causes of Your Anxiety and Unhappiness:

When nothing in life seems to bring you happiness, it’s pretty hard to know what to change and how that change will turn out.

Together, we’ll get to the root causes of your anxiety and unhappiness. Why is understanding that so important? Because when one area of your life is deeply unsatisfying, it can cast a shadow over everything else.

The therapists at Evanston Counseling help identify the true source of your discontent and which changes will bring meaningful transformations in all areas.

Create Goals Driven by Your True Desires:

Once you understand the emotions behind your past decisions and have identified the source of your anxiety, you’re in the best (and, ironically, safest) place to set goals for your future.

Therapy for Young Adults helps you establish goals that align with what you desire most.
