Emerging Adulthood is both an exciting and daunting time in one’s life, that calls for exploration in love, work and world views.
The “Quarter Life Crisis” is a term that often refers to the time in a 20-30 something’s life, in which they’re searching for identity, direction and meaning in our complex world.
I work with undergraduate students, graduate students and post-education emerging adults, who often struggle with unsatisfying relationships, career confusion, uncertainty about their identity, anxiety about the uncertain future and general discontentment about the current state of his or her life.
Have you ever questioned:
- “What am I doing with my life?”
- “Will I feel happy and successful in my chosen career path?”
- “Will I find love?”
- “Why do I want different things for my life than my family or society?”
- “What is my true passion?”
Though this time period for emerging adults can be quite exhilarating, it can also be a time in which anxiety, depression, hopelessness and low self-confidence can surface.
My hope is to empower you to embrace this time as less of a crisis and more as an opportunity to genuinely define and reawaken your own true desires and direction in life. Together, we will help you identify the tools to:
- Handle the multiple demands of school, job, friends and family, while making room for your own self-care
- Cope with the stress and pressure of family and/or society
- Identify your own goals and hopes for your future personal, romantic and career lives
- Differentiate healthy striving from perfectionism
- Learn from the past, live in the present and believe in the future
- Identify self-defeating behaviors and patterns and get “un-stuck”
- Use vulnerability and courage to truly believe that you are enough and that you do not have to hustle for worthiness
