Counseling for the Gifted Adults

Gifted children are often identified by their insatiable curiosity, advanced mental ability, intensity, and thought-provoking questions. But what happens when these children become adults? What are they like and do they have any particular mental health needs?When gifted (talented and creative) adults engage in therapy, it can lead them to happier, more fulfilling lives; better relationships; and more satisfying work experiences.

  • chronic self-doubt and feelings of being an impostor

  • too many interests, problems prioritizing
  • boredom
