Navigating the launching phase/ empty nest can pose a difficult set of challenges not only for emerging adults and their parent(s), but for the entire family system as a whole.
It can be frightening, frustrating, and confusing to be faced with a series of important decisions or significant changes to the family dynamics that you feel ill-equipped to handle together.
Changing roles and responsibilities along with the new heightened demands on young adults can lead parents/ caregivers to feel strained and unsure of how to maintain a sense of peace and togetherness while also nurturing a sense of independence and confidence in their children.
Therapy is a unique type of service in that it requires you to play an active role in the changes you'd like to create for yourself.
Therapy requires you to think on things that were discussed in session and to try something new that may be outside your comfort zone. In order to be effective, therapy involves a commitment to the process and a willingness to communicate openly with your therapist.
