When To Seek Help
There are many reasons a person might seek professional counseling. Frequently, it’s because the person is going through a time of transition. A new relationship, a new job, moving to a new city, all such changes can be unsettling and make it difficult to function as effectively as usual. Leaving home to enter college is a major life transition. Left behind are family and all the comforts of home, including the family pet, old friends, even the familiarity of the old neighborhood. Although coming to college is largely a positive and exciting experience, it can still result in homesickness and other adjustment difficulties.
When you think about it a lot is expected of college students. They are expected to leave home, often for the first time, make new friends, maybe find a new romantic partner, take part in campus clubs and organizations, and adjust to a new geographic location and a change in climate, all while deciding what they want to do for the rest of their lives, getting adequate sleep, and making excellent grades. Whew! It shouldn’t surprise anyone that college students feel overwhelmed at times.
Personal counseling can help anyone who wants to learn how to live more effectively and with greater satisfaction. Therapy can also help with painful experiences such as anxiety, depression, alcohol or other drug problems, loneliness, guilt, feelings of inadequacy, conflicts related to one’s family, friends, roommates, or romantic partners, grief and loss, disappointing academic and athletic performance, and current or past traumas such as sexual assault and childhood abuse.
