A lot of successful people live their lives waiting to be called out as a fraud. So many, in fact, that we’ve got a name for it: imposter syndrome. It refers to a belief that you will be discovered as incompetent and that other people will begin to question your abilities in the same way that you critique yourself.
People dealing with imposter syndrome attribute their objective accomplishments to luck or other external factors rather than their own effort. On the flip side, they attribute their failures to a deep flaw within themselves rather than to things they can’t control. While it’s not a clinical diagnosis or symptom, research indicates that it is associated with many different mental health struggles including anxiety and depression.

Anyone who’s entered the workforce has found themselves staring at their piles of laundry, wondering if they can make it to the bank before the gym, and racking their brain for that 4th thing they just KNOW they forgot but had to get done tonight.
Before you start screaming into pillows (not a bad coping tool by the way), give us a call. Chronic stress is related to a myriad of negative mental and physical health outcomes; get ahead of the curve and learn to manage it now. Our therapists have specialized experience helping young adults with time management and learning to prioritize their own well-being.
Improving Interpersonal Communication
Young adulthood is filled with tricky relational situations that can really trip us up. There’s a major role shift happening, as you move towards more independence and live on your own. Communicating with family members, bosses, and colleagues is full of pitfalls that we can help you navigate. We help you identify your values and see for yourself the kind of budding adult you want to be.
Want to hold firmer boundaries with your parents? We got you. Want to assert yourself to your boss? Let’s talk. Maybe you want a gentle way to tell your roomie that those five-day-old dishes in the sink are super gross. Whatever your interpersonal hang-up, we help walk you through difficult conversations so that you can handle it skillfully and with grace.

Therapy Services for Young Adults
Tight on Money and/or Time?
We know you’re busy and that your time is valuable. We pride ourselves on tailoring therapy to suit you. We offer therapy virtually or in-person, and you can even skip Starbucks on the way into session because we offer coffee or espresso when you arrive!
When you’re first getting started, you might have some financial concerns about attending therapy. You’re not alone in that, so we developed a few different options to help out. We offer a 4-session package that comes at a 10% discount (psst, this also works to help you make a commitment to your mental health). We offer 30-minute Mini-Sessions as well, for as low as $99. Maybe one day you have precious extra time and want more than our typical 50 minutes. In that case, we offer extended, 75-minute sessions too.
Frequently Asked Questions About Therapy for Young Adults
- Why is therapy important for young adults?
As a college student or young professional, you’re juggling a lot. Even if you’re not dealing with anxiety or depression, which makes it even harder, we’re sure you’ve noticed time management and stress challenges.
We can also help you clarify what’s most important for you so that you can make goals for your future that align with that. No matter what you are bringing to therapy, the important thing is that you start now, and spend more of your life as your ideal self.
- What type of therapy is best for young adults?
Studies show time and time again that the relationship between the therapist and client is more important than the specific kind of therapy style. A variety of other things influence your best treatment choice, especially your goals. Come for an initial session and we can plan an approach together.
- Is there free therapy for young adults?
Show of hands: who reading this has impulse-bought something really silly on amazon in the last week? Would you spend that money differently if given another chance? We know it can be hard to spend money on yourself in this way. On the other hand, you deserve excellent mental health care. What would you tell your best friend to do with their budget?
All of that said, we do offer ways to save money.
- One, you can book a 30-minute Mini-Session at a reduced rate compared to our typical 50-minute appointments.
- Two, we offer a package of four sessions at a 10% discount.
- Third, you can submit therapy bills to your insurance. Many times, our clients who do this end up paying $50-$60 per appointment.
- And finally, if you have an HSA card (aka flexible spending account), you can use that to pay for therapy.
- What makes TPG different from Therapy Apps?
In recent years, billion-dollar Big Tech companies swooped into the mental health space to capitalize on the needs of our community. Enter low-quality therapy apps, AI, and giant platforms of online-only therapists promising quick and cheap therapy.
From Venture Capital funded companies to co-working spaces – it’s tricky to know who you are working with exactly. Huge platforms powered by independent contractors working from home without any oversight, policies, procedures or quality control. Many of these companies are owned by people without any background in mental healthcare or the laws and ethics that protect it.
The Psychology Group Fort Lauderdale is a local, neighborhood practice with a brick-and-mortar location. Our therapists are hand-selected after a rigorous hiring process to ensure we have the best and brightest. The group is owned, operated, and managed by a licensed psychologist, committed to positive outcomes, privacy, and patient-centered ethics
- Should I get therapy from Tiktok?
Probably not. A recent study of 500 mental health TikToks (with a whopping 25 million views) showed that roughly 80% of them were deemed to have medical misinformation according to clinicians. Further, only 3% of the most popular mental health TikToks were made by licensed providers. All that said, we love TikTok and encourage you to bring any you find meaningful to you into session! We can give you a thumbs up or down.
