Similar to many life transitions, the college experience can be both exciting and frightening. College students often find themselves struggling with making decisions, adjusting, socializing, and planning. This can lead to heightened symptoms of anxiety, loneliness, and symptoms of depression.
What to Expect in College Counseling
Many college-related symptoms of anxiety are caused by fear-based thoughts. These fear-based thoughts are often related to the future/the unknown and can be both real (based on previous experience) and imagined (based on events that have not yet occurred).
HWP helps you get to the root cause of your symptoms by utilizing a holistic and integrative approach to therapy. Based on the severity of symptoms, therapy may be short- or long-term.
Therapy is a collaborative process. Therefore, you and your therapist will work together to identify specific concerns and develop concrete skills and techniques for coping.
Who is it for?
Individuals who are currently in college, are planning to return to college, or are about to graduate college.
Depending on your location and the practitioner you work with, these sessions can be conducted in person at our Alpharetta location, via video, or a combination of both.
