College Students

Are your academic or social pressures overwhelming you? Are you having trouble making friends, enjoying yourself, and fitting in?

College life can provide a great deal of challenges academically, socially and personally. Stress, anxiety, depression, and adjustment concerns are common feelings for beginning or current college students. College can be a positive time in a persons life, but is often full of adjustments and hardships. If you are experiencing these struggles you are not alone many college students face these challenges.

College is a time of transition in a young adults life. Academic demands, social pressures, and a desire to succeed are areas of concern for many college students. Whether you are experiencing these stressors it is important to notice when you are in need of additional support.

Do I really need counseling? Everyone around me seems to be so happy why do I feel differently?

Counseling can be a positive resource at any time in a persons life. Providing an nonjudgmental atmosphere where individuals can discuss any topic in a non-biased environment can be extremely powerful in self-discovery and personal growth. Counseling and working on your mental health is a skill that needs refining and attention in the same way that physical health does. College is a perfect time in a persons life to work on self-growth and skill development for later in life. Isolation, anxiety, depression are common feelings among college students due to the pressures individuals feel to always portray a happy and joyful public image. By noticing these feelings and seeking help you are taking a huge step in improving your overall happiness and finding the support you need.

Are you experiencing relationship problems, adjusting to being away from family, or having difficulty managing all the responsibilities of college life?
