Going away to college is exciting and fun! You get to be truly independent for the first time in your life and live the way that you want to! Unfortunately, this independence can also make going to college very intimidating, and the adjustment can be challenging.
College students often feel cut off and alone – and like they don’t have access to the same family and support structure that they did in high school and when they were younger.
This, combined with the high-pressure academic environment of college, can lead to various issues such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, and even academic problems.
I know how hard it can be to deal with the transitional college environment. I offer therapy and counseling to college students who need help understanding their place in their new world.
Whether you are suffering from issues like loneliness, difficulty connecting with other students, or anxiety due to your studies and exams, I can help. I’m a qualified therapist, and I have years of experience helping college students get the aid they need to enjoy better mental health – and focus on their studies.
A few of my areas of expertise include the following:
Forming new relationships in college can be challenging, and understanding what others expect of you in college is often quite difficult. I can help you navigate through the murky waters of college relationships – whether it’s with a professor, significant other, roommate, or friend.
The independence of college can make it hard for some students to study correctly, and often leads to poor academic performance. With guidance on goal setting, study techniques, and stress reduction, I can help students of any academic specialization deal with the difficult academic environment of college.
Anxiety and depression are shockingly common among college students. If you believe you are suffering from depression or anxiety, I can help with professional counseling services.
I can also aid you in the areas of self-esteem issues, communication, adjustment issues, and much more.
Nothing is embarrassing or awkward about seeking help from a professional counselor while in college.
