Helping Young Adults Feel Secure in Themselves.

If you are struggling with feeling worried all the time, I understand how difficult that can be. You might feel anxious about being independent from your parents and living on your own. Or you might be nervous to go to college and make new friends. You also may be afraid to leave a life that is familiar and comfortable. It may be difficult to leave your current friendships with the people you have known most of your life. In our society, we don’t talk about it very much, but what you are experiencing is normal. Reaching out to me and working together means you have a place to get help with your concerns.

Here Are Some Specific Challenges That I Can Help You With

As a Young Adult challenged by insecurity you may be feeling:

● Anxious to leave what is familiar and comfortable
● Scared that you will lose connections with your current friendships
● Nervous that you won’t make new friends and will become isolated and lonely

Even if you are feeling overwhelmed with feelings like these, Counseling can help.

As Your Psychotherapist, I Can Help You Feel Confident

I’m Lisa Knudson and I’m a Psychotherapist who is uniquely qualified to help you feel confident and secure with yourself. After grad school, I worked in a group home for adolescents. The experience profoundly shifted my understanding of how traumatizing it can be to move away from one’s family permanently to an environment filled with complete strangers during such a vulnerable time to begin with. I wasn’t that much older than they were and they challenged and tested me like nobody else in my career. In order for them to trust me, I had to earn it. I approached them at their level, and listened intently about their personal stories of grief, loss and disconnection. Many had been through several changes in their lifetime that left them feeling numb and detached from people. Others had experienced multiple traumas. They were not ready to let go of their suspicions about me being a support to them since they had been repeatedly abandoned in their short lifetime. By showing up consistently, day after day, they slowly began to trust me.

Like these adolescent girls, you may have had needs that were ignored when you were younger and affected how you experienced life. I understand what that is like. I’m very effective at helping people find their way in life, even when there are leftover issues from a difficult experience in the past. Most people describe me as calm, which is helpful if you are experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety during a major life transition. You are invited to bring whatever is present for you and arrive as you are.

Counseling for Young Adults Can Improve Your Life

Counseling can provide the support you need to help you find your way towards a better life.

Even if you’re feeling lost now, I can help guide you in making lasting, positive changes in your life. Counseling can help you:

● Start feeling confident in your ability to navigate your life
● Learn more about the parts of yourself that you didn’t understand or knew existed
● Build the skills you need to deal with the difficult stuff life throws your way

It’s not easy managing your tough situation but the good news is that it’s possible to feel confident and secure with yourself. I have the experience to help you.
