Therapy for Life Transitions

Change can be tough and life transitions can be overwhelming, stressful, uncomfortable or unsettling. 

It's not unusual to experience difficulties when you are adjusting to these new normals.


If you have been through a recent life transition and you're experiencing a few or more of the following on a fairly consistent basis, therapy for life transitions is the right support system for you:

  • Feeling overwhelmed

  • Low mood

  • Irritability

  • Increased anxiety or stress

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Low energy

  • Headaches

  • Upset stomach / digestive issues

  • Frequent colds or illnesses

  • Appetite increase or decrease

  • Isolation in the home or isolating self socially 

  • Resentment

  • Questioning your self-worth

We specialize in counseling teens and adults experiencing major life transitions and difficulties adjusting to these. 

Our therapists are integrative and incorporate several evidence-based treatment models into the therapeutic process. Here are the most common approaches we use to support you: 

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Skills

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

  • Holistic Therapy

  • Psychoeducation

The goal is to help you strike a balance in taking care of your entire being, so you can effectively tackle and manage your stress in a way that works best for you.
