College Counseling

Therapy and Guidance for College Students/Graduates

College is an incredible time to be alive. You are often in the peak of your physical health, you’re experiencing things you’ve never experienced before, and you are starting to end your “development” period and become an adult. But college is also not without its challenges:

  • The academic demands can be greater than any you have experienced before.
  • Transitioning to adulthood can be stressful and cause anxiety.
  • Relationships and social expectations can feel overwhelming, new, and challenging.

 

Mistakes also seem to carry more weight at this age, and your mental health can go through a considerable number of changes.

College Counseling in Long Island, Garden City, and Lawrence

In my years as a Long Island college counselor, I’ve worked with students and graduates that come from all walks of life. I’ve seen college students struggle with depression and anxiety, either as their own standalone conditions or as a result of the changes they have to go through in their educational careers. Through my Long Island college therapy services, along with my college and graduate therapy services in the Greater Long Island area, you’ll be able to work through any of the issues that surround college and young adult life, including:

  • Coping with school challenges
  • Coping with social challenges
  • Transitioning to adulthood
  • Dealing with adult relationships
  • Career preparation and career counseling
  • Controlling anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues
  • Substance abuse

 

Young adults go through a variety of life events, which is why young adult counseling in Long Island needs to be available to those that are going through this transition. I try to create a judgment free space that will make it easy for you or your young adult to open up about their life, share, and learn what it takes to become an emotionally healthy contributor to society.

College Therapy for Young Adults

Although college is meant to be a time of liberation and growth, there is no denying that college is an age with unprecedented challenges. Unfortunately, it is also a time when some are hesitant to seek out help.
