Quarter Life Crisis
Therapy for Life transitions
Is the Quarter-Life Crisis Real?
You might be wondering if a quarter-life crisis is even a thing. Maybe you’ve been told your generation is entitled and what you’re experiencing is not a real problem. But the quarter-life crisis has a Wikipedia page, so yeah, it’s a thing. Sometimes it happens at a time of transition, like college to the workforce. But often it happens at a time where there’s no transition at all. Things are stagnant and you start to wonder if the life you’ve built is really the life you want. And then you start to panic. Feelings of self-doubt, anxiety, and depression can start to creep in.
Signs of a Quarter-Life Crisis
- Feeling trapped or stuck
- Lack of purpose
Difficultywith decision making
- Feeling inadequate or incompetent
- Lack of motivation
- Low self-esteem
- Loneliness, even when surrounded by others
- Feeling disconnected or detached
How can therapy help?
Houston Quarter Life Crisis Counseling
Well-intentioned friends and family members can often be helpful in navigating these struggles, but sometimes they add to the confusion. Sometimes their stake in your choices colors their judgment. Therapy is all about you and it can be helpful to talk things over with someone solidly in your corner, but is impartial and nonjudgmental. And while you work through the quarter-life crisis, therapy will help you develop strategies to cope with and minimize the symptoms of anxiety and depression that accompany this period.
I am a Texas therapist specializing in helping adults in their 20s and 30s overcome the quarter-life crisis. If this sounds familiar, you don’t have to go it alone.
HOW This WORKs - AKA THE PROCESS
LET'S START A CONVERSATION
Schedule a free 15-minute phone call so we can get acquainted. I'll ask what you're looking for help with, you can ask your questions and we can get you scheduled for an appointment when we agree it's a good fit.
WE DIVE DEEPER
During our first sessions, we'll get to know each other, build a therapeutic alliance, and get on the same page about your goals and how best to achieve them. Throughout treatment, you have the option to live chat with me once a week between sessions and have your homework sent to you with reminders so that you can build on your progress.
WE MAKE A PLAN
You are the expert on your life and experience. Together, we'll collaborate using your expertise and mine to create a plan that suits your treatment and journey.
WE ADJUST AND ADAPT
Sometimes things don't go according to plan. Or maybe things go so well and there's a new path the take. Flexibility is a key part of the process.
CONSIDER ME, YOUR OWN CHEERING SQUAD
I'm rooting for you every step of the way.
