College mental health at Lotus Consulting
You have been feeling stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, out of place. It feels as though you are just going through the motions.
You have done all the work to get in and prepared well. You are used to succeeding but now you feel more like small fish in large pond, overwhelmed by competing demands, trying to find your way in the midst of it all, academics, relationships, multiple stressors all at once. Figuring out your people, places and things, how or where you and your identities fit in it all.
You would like to feel connected, confident, focused and effective again.
But when it comes to finding your path and balance, you feel disoriented, finding it hard to make decisions with clarity and ease like you used to. This is unsettling, as you have not always felt this out of control or uncertain. In fact, as you tackled challenges throughout your life you always found enough clarity to keep moving forward with purpose and conviction.
Yet, being on campus now, navigating all the moving pieces at once, everything from living situation, social dynamics, friends and faculty relationships, high-pressure academics along with daily life you feel overwhelmed and a bit lost. You are trying all you can but the results do not seem to quite reflect your effort.
You wonder if your vision is attainable exactly as you hoped. You doubt yourself and your decisions. You wonder if this path is for you.
We are here to help. You can feel satisfied, focused and in control again.
