What is a millennial? This generation consists of those born from 1981 to 2001. Recent research by the American Psychological Association has found that millennials are the most stressed and depressed generation out there today.
Millennials are experiencing new generational challenges, from economic to financial to interpersonal. And hey, we totally get it – our staff is full of millennials! We face a unique set of challenges in comparison to other generations, in particular with our emotional and psychological needs. Experts say that the central difference between millennials and other generations is in the way we communicate, and that can translate to the therapy office. Facing the double bind of wanting to succeed while being faced with the struggles mentioned above can create what feels like a quarter life crisis.
In a society that is fast-paced and judgemental, the therapeutic space has the potential to provide you with a calming, safe conversation, that offers the support and shared understanding of the millennial experience. Begin to know yourself as a whole person, an individual, while taking steps toward the meaningful life you dream of, and away from the criticism and bleakness that we face as a generation.
With the right support, life can become much more manageable. Let’s connect, because you deserve an epic life!
