Life Transitions

dealing with change

There’s no denying that life often presents us with our fair share of challenges, usually in the form of sudden change. These life transitions, even the positive ones, can throw us into a tailspin and leave us feeling stressed, confused, and vulnerable. But with the right tools and mindset, you have the power not only to overcome any adversity but also to transform into a more authentic and confident version of yourself.

Change that is neither wanted nor expected can influence personal growth. Change allows us to see what we’re made of, become stronger, more confident, and better prepared for what life throws us next. With each new challenge, we develop new personal skills and obtain a greater awareness of ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Some of the most common life transitions we help clients navigate are:

  • Moving away to college
  • Adjusting to university life or your first professional job
  • Getting married
  • Having a new baby

Is it Time to Speak to Someone?

Sometimes we can handle change and adversity by ourselves, and sometimes we need a little help. Our counselors are here to lend that helping hand and offer a warm and encouraging environment where you can speak candidly and receive care, compassion and guidance. If you or someone you love is struggling with a life transition and would like to explore treatment options, please be in touch

Preserving Family Wellness During A Pandemic

With the rapid emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like an understatement to say that things feel scary.

Fostering Independence In Your Child

What these lessons teach us, however, is to strive toward independence and autonomy, and to trust our own skills. When we intervene so often for the sake of saving time or saving a mess, we are essentially telling our kids to remain completely dependent on us.
