... dealing with the issues of a teenage crisis, quarter life crisis, and midlife crisis ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, quezon city, manila, philippines)

colgate philippines invited me to do a talk on life crises.

it is a rather timely topic because in the recent years, more teens have sought help from me on their own volition and without their parents accompanying them.

this can mean a number of things: it can mean that their problem involves their parents, or given the OFW phonomenon, their parents might not be present, or they may simply want to spare their parents from worrying about them.  

whether the crisis happens during the teenage, young adult, or midlife years, a crisis is a period beset by restlessness, anxiety, angst, and possibly depression. 

people in crisis are lost in some sort of psychological limbo or emotional purgatory- an angst-ridden place between the past which they need to leave behind and a future which is uncertain.  

through psychotherapy and life coaching, they can get the emotional support, respectful guidance, and spiritual direction they need to pass through and survive the "fire."
