All our adjustment disorder counselors are highly educated and trained and have received their full clinical licensure from practicing counseling. We also thoroughly interview each of our adjustment disorder therapists, ensure that they pass a background check, and train them in-house to work with us. Additionally, we ensure that each of our counselors and therapists participates in ongoing education to continue to provide the best in-person and online therapy services possible.
It is important that our clients work with the best possible fit as an adjustments and life transitions therapist for their specific treatments for adjustment disorder. This is why we provide detailed bios of our adjustment disorder therapists for our clients to review before reaching out to us. If you have a specific adjustment and life transitions therapist in mind to work with, we would be happy to schedule you to see them. We also understand that our clients don't always match perfectly with their adjustment disorder therapist, and in the case of a less-than-great fit, we will help you to find the right match among our team and, if necessary, provide the best referral we can to someone more suited to help you beyond our walls.
A professional counselor is a master- or PhD-level mental health professional approved by a state licensure board to diagnose and treat mental health disorders. The exact name of a professional counselor's license can vary by state, but some of the most common are: Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).
We do employ licensed clinical psychologists for adjustment disorder, as psychologists can offer services, such as best online adjustment disorder therapy services and psychological testing, that many other license types are unable to offer. Many times, your counselor or therapist can work in tandem with a psychologist to provide therapy and psychological testing when necessary to better provide for your specific needs or goals. In this way, we are able to better provide for a wider range of your needs.
Our adjustment disorder therapist accepts many major commercial insurance plans, including Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, Tricare, and others. If you don't see your insurance listed, we would be happy to verify your benefits to see if we can accept them, and if not, we offer you an affordable self-pay rate.
At Lifebulb, we operate without any ongoing membership or fees. We believe that everyone deserves to receive the best online therapy service experience for adjustment disorder symptoms. And we believe those benefits should come free of any ongoing out-of-pocket fees simply for engaging in adjustment disorder therapy. With us, your only session costs will be those set by your insurance provider or our low self-pay rate.
While many practices accept only self-pay clients or out-of-network benefits, at Lifebulb, we aim to keep your costs low by accepting most major insurance plans. Often the out-of-pocket expense per online adjustment disorder therapy session is a low copay determined by your specific insurance provider and plan. We also offer a self-pay rate lower than many practices for those without insurance or simply preferring not to use their healthcare benefits for in-person or virtual adjustment disorder therapy.
At Lifebulb, we are extremely picky about who we hire to help you achieve your adjustment disorder therapy goals. But we understand that every adjustment and life transitions therapist may not be the perfect match for every client. If your life changes therapy experience is less than you hoped, we will help you get set up to see someone you prefer.
We all experience changes in our lives, both significant and minor, planned and unanticipated. Any modification or change significantly affecting your life is considered a life transition. Transitions may be based on an exciting event, such as beginning a new work or adding a family member. Upsetting events like the death of a loved one may also bring them on. Many people find it difficult to adjust to changes like reaching 40, retiring, or having children, which is also a life transition. This may lead to the person developing adjustment disorder symptoms.
Transitions in life can be difficult for several reasons.
Change: A life transition denotes a departure from our prior routine. Even if we consider this a "positive" shift, adjusting to a new habit can be challenging. Take moving to a new town or city as an example. You may be looking forward to this exciting shift, but while you adjust, you'll need to figure out new things like how to commute to work, which grocery stores have the most incredible produce, and where to go for an evening walk. Learning new routines requires more effort and time than we ordinarily put into daily tasks.
Increased stress: People encounter several forms of stress due to a life shift. Eustress, a type of stress that inspires you to overcome obstacles and go forward, might occur occasionally. Long-term stress, however, can affect your physical, emotional, and mental health, making navigating a change much more challenging.
Unanticipated changes: Unexpected transitions that directly affect our daily life can be quite difficult to deal with and may even lead to the development of adjustment disorder symptoms. For instance, pandemics, job loss, and accidents can occur suddenly. Ultimately, when a transformation happens unexpectedly, it can be challenging to handle because we don't have time to plan.
Significant life changes or stress can interfere with our usual coping processes, causing adjustment disorder, which makes it challenging to adjust to new circumstances. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, adjustment disorder symptoms typically manifest three months following a change or stressful event. A few examples are a sad mood, worry, adjustments to daily routines, panic, excruciating tension, trouble sleeping, and modifications to food and sleeping patterns. More stress than usual is a symptom of adjustment disorder, which can cause serious issues at work, in the classroom, or in interpersonal interactions. It may also result in dangerous actions, loneliness, and suicidal thoughts.
Transitions in life affect everyone, but some are more difficult than others. You might feel better and healthier from speaking with a therapist if you discover that you are going through a life shift that is significantly affecting your mood, capacity to work, ability to communicate with others, or any other critical life area. If you need help, you can simply find us online by searching for ‘adjustment disorder therapist near me’ or ‘best therapy for adjustment disorder’. You can also call us directly to book an appointment for adjustment disorder with anxiety and depression or any life transition issues.
The signs and adjustment disorder symptoms experienced differ from person to person and depend on the type of adjustment disorder or level of transition. In response to a stressful situation, you suffer more stress than is often anticipated, and the stress causes serious issues in your life.
Adjustment disorders impact how you feel and think about the world and yourself, as well as your behaviors and behavior. Several instances include:
An adjustment disorder with anxiety might result from many different stressful situations. Among the frequent causes in grownups are:
Psychotherapy - As the primary treatment type for adjustment disorder with anxiety, psychotherapy is known as "talk therapy" for individual, group, or family therapy. Some of its salient features include helping the client understand stress management and learn coping skills for future stressful events, allowing the client to return to a routine, and providing emotional support during heightened sensitivity.
Lifestyle adjustments - Helping the survivor of an adjustment disorder to build resilience against future traumatic events while avoiding the emergence of their symptoms is at the core of this treatment type.
Relapse prevention therapy - Relapse prevention therapy is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps clients develop skills to prevent a foreseeable relapse.
