Life Transitions New Beginnings
The only constant in life is change, but that certainly doesn’t make it easy. Life brings transitions that come with age and development (childhood-adolescence-early adulthood-middle age-old age), all of which come with their own sets of challenges. There are circumstantial changes that come as we live our lives, such as moving, marriage/new partner, parenthood, career switch, empty nest, or menopause. Then there are the changes that take us by surprise, often knocking the wind right out of us; instances of divorce/break-up, unexpected parenthood, death of a loved-one, traumas, illness, mid-life crisis, etc. We all have our own ways of responding to life transitions: for some change is relatively easy, but for others it can be jarring, painful, and disorienting.
Life transitions can yield tremendous growth when traversed consciously. Change is like wild-fire in a familiar old grove: it can feel destructive and heartbreaking. But sometimes a forceful clearing out of the familiar can make way for the emergence of fresh, new growth. I am here to help you bear the weight of your transitions. Together we will mine them, whatever their nature, for all the new growth they have to offer. No one should have to endure grief and loss alone. As your therapist I will bear witness to your process and help you move through the emotions you find along the way. I will assist you in gathering the resources you need to find courage and move forward, a changed person, into your new world.
