Adolescent Boys & Young Adult Men Counseling Program
At certain points in an adolescent or young adult’s life, questions begin to grow. Self-identity, college selection, career path, dating, relationships, personal independence and other major life issues require more attention.
Facing these major life decisions can be overwhelming, and it is not uncommon for teenagers or college-aged guys to respond to the fear and pressure with what appears to be a lack of motivation or initiative, engaging in distractions, or even self-destructive behaviors. However, the fear and anxiety that drive these detrimental responses can be mitigated and resolved when he is able to address the thoughts and emotions present and then be counseled on the resulting behaviors.
Whether you are a concerned parent or a young man facing these decisions, individual professional counseling can help an adolescent or young adult get from where he is to where he wants to be. Using tools such as personality assessments and aptitude tests and through self-exploration and examining family context, personal development can be facilitated within four dimensions of life goals:
• Personal: dealing with individually specific issues
• Vocational: school, college, job, career
• Relational: family, friends, dating/marriage aspirations
• Spiritual: personal discovery, preservation, and growth
This program can help those who feel lost gain direction or those who have direction develop a clearer path on the journey of life.
