Therapy for Gen Z & Young Professionals
Hi, Bob here. When I was your age, I went through some difficult things. I went from being semi-dependent on my parents to all of a sudden having a lot of autonomy. I felt like nobody gave a sh*t about who I was when I turned 18 and that was a scary place to be. Faced with a lot of new experiences, I didn't know how to deal with them all.
So yes, times have changed and I've got a head full of white hair and some thinning too. But, I tell you, the struggles as a young adult or twenty something are real, across time.
Let me see if I can guess at your experience.
Is this your young adult experience?
You made it through adolescence, congrats! Now, there’s all this pressure to know what you’re going to be when you grow up. Your world is no longer limited to your family, school and friends in a familiar neighborhood. You’ve moved away from home and you’re trying to figure out this relationship thing, pay bills and learn to do the other activities of daily living.
That’s a lot to juggle and you’re not sure if you have what it takes.
The thing is, whether you’re still in school or have started to work a demanding job, it’s hard being twenty something. Other people make it look so easy but you don’t understand half of what’s going on. You’re tired, you feel alone and sometimes, you don’t want to get out of bed.
That’s not cool.
Where we're going in counseling
Let’s be frank, I was an idiot when I was your age. I’ve made a lot of mistakes because I didn’t know better. After all, Google search aside, how can you know what you don’t know, unless someone points things out to you?
Can I be that person for you?!
I’m going to cite a bit of research cuz I think you can handle it: How you make sense of who you are and what you’re about does not come to a head until you’re in your mid-twenties. If you think you’re a loser, then you’re going to lose. My job is to help you win and focus on what really matters during these prime years of your life.
Issues I work with
I love helping people with depression, anxiety, work and school-related stress, autism spectrum disorder, and drugs and alcohol use.

Knowing how hectic life can be juggling the many aspects of adulting, I provide the following afternoon, eve and weekend hours:
Tues - 2:30 to 9pm
Fri - 2:30 to 9pm

Are you grappling with what life is about?! Let’s figure this out together.
