I’m a millennial woman in my late 20s and I’m feeling stuck in my life. I have everything I ever dreamed of — a great career, fun nights out with my friends, and an amazing apartment in the city. But there’s in this voice in my head that tells me I’m not good enough, that I might be doing something wrong because I’m still single, and that I’m not working hard enough at my job. Can therapy help a millennial woman like me?
Absolutely! The experienced individual counselors at Emily Cook Therapy specialize in working with millennial women in their 20s and 30s who may be struggling with a wide range of relationship, social, career, self-esteem, and life stressors.
Millennial women face so much pressure in today’s world: pressure to look perfect, pressure to have a perfect job and a perfect relationship, pressure to be happy. But so often, midst all this pressure to be perfect, millennial women feel like they are losing their sense of self instead of finding purpose and fulfillment.
Some millennial women are single and hooking up, others are getting engaged and married and a few of those women are calling off their weddings, and still others are becoming new moms. Women in their 20s and 30s have often transitioned from college to graduate school or first careers, may have accumulated credit card or student load debt, and may be living in new cities. Many millennial women experience intense “fear of missing out” (#fomo), emotional breakdowns that result from feeling pushed in too many different directions, and a sense of disconnect between where their life is now and where they thought it would be in their 20s and 30s.
Individual therapists at Emily Cook Therapy believe that millennial women are resilient to the pressures of our culture and worthy of love. In individual counseling, conversations with your therapist will be focused on you–on your unique goals, needs, and struggles. Just like you make time to exercise or hang out with friends, you deserve time set aside every week to talk candidly about your worries, fears, triumphs, and dreams. You will leave sessions with mindfulness skills for living in the present moment, a deeper sense of compassion for yourself and for others, and new insights that create peace in your life.
