What am I supposed to be doing with my life?
I thought this was the job I wanted. It isn’t. Now what?
All my friends are in serious relationships. What’s wrong with me?
Am I making a difference in the world?
Should I get my own apartment? Should I buy a condo?
How can I pay all my bills on this salary?
Are you in your 20s or 30s and asking yourself some of these questions? Do you feel like you might be having a midlife crisis 25 years too early? You are not alone in experiencing what’s been called a Quarterlife Crisis. Transitioning into “real life” is not what it used to be and it’s taking longer for young adults to transition into traditional markers such as financial independence, marriage, and a secure career. This period of transition, known as one’s “quarterlife,” can be filled with frustration, disappointment, anxiety, uncertainty, and lack of meaning or purpose.
Unfortunately, while all people go through this transition, few people talk about it openly, which can create more anxiety and hopelessness.
QuarterLife+10 is a therapy group for unmarried professionals in their mid-20s to mid-30s who want to explore issues related to work/career, personhood/identity, spirituality, relationships, and more, in a supportive, open environment. You’ll begin exploring the question: Where am I now and where do I want to be in 10 years?

“Might be a quarter-life crisis or just a stirrin'
in my soul. Either way, I wonder sometimes, about the outcome of a
still verdictless life. Am I living it right?”
