Life Changes

Are you struggling with a new chapter in life?


One certainty in life is change. Sometimes, whether big or small, positive or negative, life brings a transition or change that removes familiar patterns, rippling out negatively, upsetting our world, and setting us in a tailspin. It can disorient you and your life’s focus.

Are you less certain about yourself since a life-changing event? Has life seemed off since a significant transition? Are you uncertain about what comes next?

Psychotherapy can smooth the way through many life transitions. I have helped clients navigate through the following:

  • Moving away to college

  • Make work or career changes, including first time with professional life

  • Getting married

  • Having a new baby

  • Postpartum Depression

  • Children leaving home

  • Breakup, separation, or divorce

  • Menopause

  • Questioning your sexual/gender identity

  • Retirement

  • Moving to a new place

  • Diagnosis of illness, serious, chronic, or disabling

  • Issues pertaining to aging

  • Death of a loved one

So, if you recently experienced:

  • Feeling lost or untethered

  • Being overwhelmed

  • Feeling vulnerable

  • Feelings like your situation or you are “unreal,” surreal, like a dream

  • Grief and loss

Or you find yourself thinking:

  • “What’s next?”

  • “If I could only go back and do this all (or this one thing) differently.”

  • “I cannot do this, or sleep, or relax, or breathe, or let go.”

  • “This is not what I expected,” or ”I wasn’t supposed to wind up here.”

  • “I am not prepared for this.“

Please contact me. I can steer you through the distress and help to improve your life.

Of course, you have managed through life until now with plenty of good coping skills and abilities, but change does not have to be so hard. As hard as it is to reach out for help, why make your life harder than it needs to be? I can help you get back on track. You can feel better prepared, learn to take better care of yourself and develop or improve coping skills. You can adjust to life’s challenges with greater resilience and transform into a more authentic, confident version of yourself.
