Howdy Emily,

You want the control in the red box:



Hope that helps,

She stated her justification options aren't available.
They're ghosted because she's using point text instead of paragraph text, as you can see here:


Type > Convert to Paragraph Text


Once you do, you'll have access to justification alignment.
Though I normally wouldn't suggest Distributed Justification (or Justify All) - it usually makes the last line look incredibly awkward. Go for "Justify Last Left".

When creating a new text layer, you can drag a box with the Type Tool, and make paragraph text right off the bat. But if you simply click, with the Type Tool, you'll create point text which can't be justified.
