Worry, procrastination, perfectionism, guilt, stress, and sadness: adulting is hard! Especially if you're starting college or your first job during a pandemic! Instead of obsessing about the what-if’s of your future, I can help you learn to stay in the present moment and connect to your values so you can make good choices and be happy now instead of at some point in the distant future. In a post-covid world many young adults are asking "Why is this happening to me? Why can’t I be normal? Am I ready to be an adult? I’m behind. I can’t navigate the world." You're not alone. You can learn to be calm, confident, and connected:
Calm – you will have brief relaxation and mindfulness practices to help when anxiety takes over your brain. Confident – you will have the skills and practice to problem solve in challenging situations and speak up for yourself with others. Connected – you will feel connected to your values and to the important relationships in your life.
