Therapy for Life Transitions
Grief and Loss
Experiencing loss is an inevitable part of most people’s lives. Whether it’s from a death of a loved one, or other changes such as relocation, career transition, or the loss of a beloved bet, you may need help making sense of that loss and how to make meaning of it so you can move ahead rather than be burdened by it.
Work and Career Issues
Many people find that they have invested a lot of time and money and effort in training in school toward a particular career but when they actually do that job, they realize it’s not all they thought it would be. The thing is that there was no way for you to know that without having actually done it. This can result in self imposed judgement and thoughts like “I should have known” or a sunk costs type of attitude and feelings that you’ve invested so much and you can’t change course.
Or perhaps a certain career has played out, or becomes obsolete, or you may want something different in terms of work-life balance.
I can support you in exploring what the alternatives are and help you to create objectives on how you may handle your situation.
It could also involve some interpersonal things at work and you may need help managing relationships at work, setting boundaries with work, or other issues with your current job.
Whether you’re having challenges at work, or if you need help making a complete transition, I can help you do your due diligence so you don’t end up in the same place again.
Early Adulthood Challenges
Students often come out of college after having spent years in a structured life only to find that once they finish school and get a job in the profession they have a degree in, they don’t actually like their line of work. This can leave a person feeling lost, trapped, and overwhelmed.
When entering into adulthood, the transition from being a student to becoming an adult can be challenging. The adjustments that come with this transition can be difficult, and finding new social connections and a sense of comradery can take time. I can help you make the necessary adjustments to take active steps to replace the social comforts of being a student with new ways of connecting with others as you make the transition into adulthood.
Or perhaps you need some support to disentangle yourself from family, or aspects of your family that are no longer serving you. I can provide the support you need to make the decisions that will give you peace and clarity in this area.
