LIFE TRANSITIONS

Many clients come to therapy when in the crossroads of important decisions or in the midst of inevitable life changes or transitions. Most of us pride ourselves at being able to make all important decisions on our own and flawlessly go through life’s ups and downs. However, many times, situations or life crisis can make us anxious, confused and conflicted. Sometimes in such circumstances, there is a hesitation to talk about these difficulties with friends and family and there is a need for an “objective” listener or just to be able to talk out loud to an impartial party.

Examples of Life Transitions:

  • Thinking about marriage, kids
  • Contemplating ending a relationship
  • Changing careers or dealing with a difficult work situation
  • Thinking about a move, retirement, etc
  • Dealing with menopause, aging
  • Mid life crisis
  • Self imposed or circumstances induced major life changes

There are numerous other examples of life transitions or passages as they are also called which can be stressful and difficult to navigate.

My Approach to helping clients going through Life Transitions:

I take my role working with life transitions very seriously. My main goal is to provide my clients with a safe space to explore and feel what they are experiencing. It is not my place to give them advice on what to do, but to help them get in touch with their deepest and most authentic self. I do take thorough history to understand the meaning and significance of what a particular transition activates or triggers for each person. From that place, we work together to sort out choices, possible consequences, best approaches, emotions and thoughts to pave the best path to move forward.
