Dara's psychotherapy practice is dedicated to helping young adults (aged 18-38) work through challenges related to this phase of life. Young adulthood is a time of great opportunities related to building satisfying relationships, careers and establishing one's own path. Along the way many get stuck in indecision, doubts and fears. For others, stress and unresolved issues can lead to mental health challenges including depression, anxiety and addictions. Expectations of parents and culture can contribute to the pressures and sense of isolation. Working collaboratively with his patients, Dara brings empathy and compassion to work.
In our modern times, many young adults are facing tremendous pressures at school and in the workplace. The fast pace of the digital age is also contributing to stress, exasperating perfectionism and leaving many feeling lonely. Therapy creates the space for honesty, authenticity and discovery.
If you are struggling in your young adulthood, then please know that you are not alone. Feeling supported to find your true self is what makes therapy such an important tool. Reaching out for help may open a new chapter which allows for a journey of understanding, healing and growth. Explore darasheik.org to begin.
