Life Transition Counseling

When Change Happens.

While many people can transition gracefully, others may feel like their world has been turned upside down. 


In times of extreme change or transition, one may go through stages of grief, emotional distance, or fear of the unknown. This can leave them feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and even depressed. Engaging in therapy to learn healthy coping mechanisms for life transitions can be extremely beneficial for anyone’s mental health and overall well-being.   


The goal of life transition counseling is to help individuals get through these emotionally taxing life changes using healthy coping mechanisms. Below are a few tactics and goals therapists commonly used to help people feel prepared for future transitions in their lives:


  • Accept change is a part of life

  • Focus on what you can control versus what you cannot control 

  • Begin the journey of Self-Awareness and highlight your strengths 

  • Remain positive: Change doesn’t have to be bad

  • Identify and express feelings

  • Reframe thoughts

  • Stress management 

  • Have realistic expectations

  • Maintain a healthy routine

  • Engage in social interaction and support

  • Appreciate the benefits of change
