Life Transitions


Change is a normal part of life and can be an opportunity to clarify your priorities and recommit to your values. Adjusting to change as we grow into new life roles and let go of others can also be hard. Unwanted changes are often stressful and even welcome changes can come with challenges we did not anticipate. Counseling can help you to fortify your coping skills in the midst of change and guide you towards making meaning of the emotions, thoughts and challenges that accompany change. Common life transitions that prompt individuals to seek counseling support include:

  • Aging

  • Retirement

  • Career changes

  • Relationship Changes 

  • Becoming a parent

  • Graduate school 

  • Menopause

  • Death of a Loved One

  • New Medical Diagnosis 

  • Significant lifestyle changes
