Young adulthood can be a time of new challenges as young people embark on the first stages of their adult life. It is a time of growth and transition into greater independence which comes with a greater diversity of both opportunities and responsibilities.
Some young adults can struggle with the demands of this life stage, leading to the emergence of problems such as depression or anxiety disorders. Other young adults may have difficulties that have persisted from adolescence and need ongoing treatment to move forward and thrive in adult life.
At Little Tree Practice, doctors are able to assess and help young adult patients adjust to the unique challenges of this life stage with a solid understanding of how earlier life experiences can affect early adulthood. Treatments offered include individual psychotherapy, medication, and work with families where this may be helpful
