Life Transitions

The only constant in life is change. Change is an unavoidable part of life and chances are, you have experienced a significant change in your life already. Many changes in life are unwelcome and shocking, like losing a loved one or the end of a relationship. Some changes that are perceived as positive, like beginning a new job or welcoming a new addition into your family, can also come with challenges and discomfort. What may not seem like a big transition to others may leave you reeling, doubling down on your discomfort with guilt and shame.

During these challenging times, you may be feeling unsettled and afraid, leaving you overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious. Seeking counseling can help you transition more smoothly, allowing you a non-judgmental space to process your discomfort, navigate your challenges, and learn healthy coping skills to adapt in uncertain times.

We can help.

In therapy at Care Counseling, you may work on identifying and expressing feelings related to life transitions, identify and reframe thoughts related to change, and learn coping skills for accepting and moving through change.
