Adolescent and Adult Life Challenges
It is not necessary to wait for mental illness to benefit from counseling. There are many challenges that are typical for different stages of life that could benefit with assistance from a counselor. Throughout our development, we are challenged with how to best love ourselves, how to relate and communicate with others, how to cope when life throws us curveballs and how to maintain overall wellness. Transitions between life-stages are also a common reason that people seek counseling, such as transitioning into different levels of grade school, going through puberty, adulthood, parenthood, parenthood with an empty nest, or retirement. Change can be exciting but also difficult, and both emotional reactions are valid.
