Therapy for Grad Students
We know how difficult getting through grad school can be, especially when you already struggle with depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues. We can help you navigate the challenges of grad school while learning ways to cope better with your emotions.
we know what it’s like
It’s Sunday night, and you’ve felt the anxiety and overwhelm creeping up on you all day. You know you didn’t get enough work done yesterday, and there’s no way you’re going to catch up today unless you stay up until 2am, which will make the start of your week miserable. The fact that all you’ve done today is lie in bed and watch TV only makes you feel worse. How much longer can you keep up this facade? Just thinking about all the things that will get added to your to-do list this week makes you want to crawl back into bed. You can’t stop the thoughts from entering your mind—I want this to be over. I feel like such a failure. You know you can’t make it through the rest of the semester like this, but you’re not sure what else to do. You’re worried you might end up self-harming tonight just to get a break from the intensity of your emotions.
You don’t have to do this alone, and things can get better. In therapy, you can learn tools and strategies to help you manage your stress, stay on top of your classes and work responsibilities, and cope more effectively with depression, anxiety, and relationship problems that seem to constantly plague you.
