Similar to many life transitions, the college experience can be both exciting and frightening.
Due to COVID-19 and restrictions placed throughout college campuses, college students are having more difficulty making decisions, adjusting, socializing, and planning. This has led to heightened symptoms of anxiety, loneliness, and symptoms of depression.
What to expect in therapy
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 planning for college, are currently in college or are about to graduate college.
