Becoming an independent young adult in today’s world economy can be a daunting prospect for teens graduating from high school.
Even with a college degree, young adults are struggling to find work that will allow them to move out and live on their own. Rising costs of gas, housing, food, insurance, and the high competition for available jobs are forcing many young people to spend their 20’s still sharing their parent’s home.
Relationships are another area where young adults can struggle. Wanting to create lasting bonds, they don’t always consider who would be a good long-term match for them, given their family values, and dream for their life. Past failed relationships can also leave them hesitant to open their hearts and try love again.
For first generation immigrant families, there can be even more challenges, as parents and their young-adult children attempt to reconcile contemporary and traditional values. “Old World” parents can find their “New World” children’s behavior confusing, and even disturbing, and feel frustrated in their efforts to help them navigate this unfamiliar new culture.
As a teen therapist, I have extensive experience working with the teen and young adult population, as well as multi-cultural families. By addressing the following young adult life coaching themes, I help young adults take their next steps toward independence:
- Manifesting Your Dreams – Define and embark on your vision for your life.
- Mastering Life Skills – Learn practical skills necessary to be successful in the world.
- The Art of Relationships – Discover what it takes to create the relationship you always dreamed of.
In private workshops, participants are guided in exercises designed to help them reach their specific goals in the areas of work, relationships and financial independence. The interactions are designed to be fun and uplifting, as well as productive, building upon previous completed tasks. Participants should come ready to embrace change … and see their life evolve in amazing new ways!
