You're here because.....

  • thinking about the state of the world and your place in it really freaks you out

  • being a "real adult" isn't all you thought it would be

  • your relationships suck or are nonexistent

  • you're not sure what direction your life is heading in

  • your dealing with any addiction

  • you're masking who you really are so you fit in (studies show masking is damaging to your mental health.) 

  • your feeling really sad and won't let yourself off the hook

  • your drowning in busyness and feeling disconnected from your people

  • anxiety and stress are your constant companions

  • you feel like you don't really know who you are

I'm glad you're here.  Read on to find out how my counseling services for young adults can help you.

Online Counseling for Young Adults 

All services available throughout Massachusetts remotely via telehealth. 

Are you carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders?

Are you trying to seem like you have it all together?

Are you putting up a front so others don't know how hard it is for you?

Hiding your feelings ​might have helped you survive in the past but now - with your relationships, with your friends, at your work - it isn't working anymore.  Substances, Netflix and self-flagellation aren't working anymore.  Turning away, denying, ignoring what's happening inside doesn't work.

So what works?  Curiosity about yourself works.  Looking at the root causes work.  Being open and honest about your struggles works.

Together we will discover ways for you to be actively involved in your life, discover the path that led to your sadness and identify any coping skills  (perfectionism, eating issues, substance use) that keep you trapped.  Let's help you figure out where you've been so you can see where you're going.  Therapy can help you regain a sense of control and pleasure in life.  This will be done incrementally taking your feelings of comfort and safety as the guide. 

Online counseling sessions for young adults will feel like having a great conversation.  Together, when you are ready, we will explore when things started being so hard for you. 

People describe my style as warm, honest, and kind.  I like to work with my clients, at their pace, to get the most change and healing.

​​

I help my clients reduce (and learn from ) grief, anxiety, manage depression symptoms, resolve relationship issues (with family, coworkers, partners), navigate difficult life transitions, and maintain healthy habits and lifestyles.  My clients have learned how to institute and enforce personal boundaries.  Most importantly, my clients have become okay with and learned to celebrate who they are.

I offer a free 15 minute phone/email consultation if you have questions or would like to see if we'd work well together.

Happy Man after having therapy for young adults with Kimberly Schildbach Therapy.

Are you pretending like you have it all together?
