Life Changes

Has one of life’s surprises thrown you for a loop? Big life transitions happen at every stage of life, often when we least expect them. No matter how well we plan, these moments can make us feel powerless, confused, or even hopeless.

All struggles are new to us when we encounter them. But no matter how unique your circumstances are, you’re not the first to walk this path. Others have overcome similar challenges before you. Fortunately, there are ways of coping that have been shown to help people in difficult situations.

My practice draws on a variety of methods and techniques for dealing with major transitions. My goal is to help you to identify coping skills, decision-making strategies, and paths to acceptance and change that are realistic for you.

Together, we will explore not just the problem, but the person you are within your situation. I’ll help you make the most of your situation, weigh your options accurately, and minimize negative consequences. It’s important to remember that taking care of yourself is not selfish – it’s the most loving thing you can do.
