Life Transitions and Losses
Throughout the course of our lives we experience many endings and beginnings, both predictable and unpredictable.
These events can strike without warning and leave us in a personal crisis or they may be planned and expected. With each change, we leave something behind and adjust to a new way of living. The goal is to reach a new phase of stability. Often this process can leave people feeling fearful or anxious and therefore seek out therapy to help.
Life transitions can include:
- Serious Illness
- Starting a career
- The loss or change of a job
- New role as a significant other
- Significant loss of a person, pet, or anything important
- Buying or selling a house
- Leaving for college
- Gender change
In therapy, I can help you grieve your losses and explore how these transitions give you a chance to learn about your strengths, and consider what you really want in life.
