Our Approach to Emerging Adult Therapy

When no one else could, you gained Mike’s trust and respect. When no one else would, you invited me – as Mike’s mother – to be a part of the wellness process.

At Psych Garden, we understand that young adults and parents both want the same thing – the freedom, and joy of youth; and the safety and direction of adulthood.

As parents, we don’t want to enable our children, yet we don’t want to control them either. It often seems there is no right way to help them get safe and independent. We know how to teach and support the family so they can be supportive, but only towards safe outcomes, to communicate limits with love, to bear the pain and anguish of parenting as children struggle. with them.

Our therapists and psychiatrists know how to support your kid, the young adult, as they wrestle with their emotions, calm their impulsivity and find their way to flourishing.

Psych Garden understands the developmental context of emerging adulthood, including the neurobiological, psychological, and social sensitivities. We keep clients on track in their lives with the minimal disruption possible, and teach them coping skills alongside therapies that can help them discover their strengths and differentiate and handle emotions with wisdom.
