ADULT / INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
Being An Adult Means
Going To Therapy
Now that you’re an adult, therapy has quickly become a necessity. More and more people are being asked to examine their own biases, weaknesses, and struggles. A lot of deeply ingrained ideas and habits are getting called into question. And with the pandemic, a lot of ignored problems are being brought to the forefront. People are taking care of their mental health more than ever before. As an emerging adult entering the job market, building friendships, and developing romantic relationships, you have to go to therapy. Learning how to handle mental health struggles is an increasingly vital part of being able to interact with other people. P.A.T.H. is here to help you learn how to take care of your mental health as you deal with the struggles of new adulthood.
Therapy for Modern Adults
This is the 21st century. We’ve learned so much about mental health and the brain over the last few decades that it’s almost uncanny. Yet a lot of emerging adults report feelings of distrust or discomfort with therapy. Many of you grew up with parents or even mental health professionals who were dismissive of your mental health struggles. They either didn’t treat your problems with the seriousness they required, or their treatment plan was based more on assumption than science. You deserve better than that. P.A.T.H. cares about science nearly as much as we care about people. We are constantly adapting our treatment plans to adjust to the latest research.
We also understand that the modern world can be overwhelming at times. With a million and one things to do, therapy can feel like another chore. P.A.T.H.’s compassion-based care will work with you on your care plan. It will be built around getting the most out of your life.
Testing For ADHD and Learning Disabilities
in Young Adults
Some people recognize neurodivergent behavior very late in life. Not everyone is diagnosed as a child, and some forms of ADHD and Learning Disabilities are fairly difficult to identify in children. Now that you’re an adult, you may begin to suspect that long-held thought patterns and habits might indicate a form of ADHD or that the struggles you had with learning in school weren’t because you were “dumb”, but because your learning style was different. You may feel it is too late in your life to benefit from testing for and learning to manage your condition. However, there are substantial benefits to testing for neurodivergent behavior as an adult if you suspect you’re affected by one of those conditions. A better grasp of how your brain works can help you feel more stable and fulfilled. And employers often allow accommodations that will make your work life more manageable, provided you can prove your condition. If you suspect you may have one of these conditions, talk to one of P.A.T.H.’s mental health professionals.
Your Mental Health Is Important
Taking care of your mental health can improve your life. Getting better awareness of your thought patterns and behaviors can help you become the best version of yourself. It can also improve your interactions with others. Healing yourself makes you more personable, makes you a better communicator, and can also make you a better friend. So what are you waiting for?
