  • Life Transitions

    “Experience is the only thing that brings knowledge, and the longer you are on earth the more experience you are sure to get.”

    ― L. Frank Baum, ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’

    Has your life been touched by a major event such as a graduation, death, divorce or layoffs at work? Are you having a hard time moving through and past the emotional turmoil? Do you feel  stuck and like you need guidance getting back on track?

    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 to not only overcome any adversity but also transform into a more authentic and confident version of yourself.

    Change Can be Beneficial

    Change, even difficult change that is neither wanted or expected, can influence personal growth. Similar to Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion change gives us the opportunity to see what we’re made of; to become stronger, more confident, and better prepared for what life throws at us next. With each new challenge, we develop new personal skills and obtain a greater awareness of ourselves, our family and our communities. 

    Common Life Transitions

    Some of the most common life transitions people experience are:

    • Moving away to, or graduating from, college
    • Getting your first professional job
    • Getting married
    • Retirement
    • Job loss or major change in career
    • Relocation
    • Serious illness or disability
    • Death of a loved one
    • Questioning the meaning of life
    • Questioning your faith/spirituality
    • Finding your purpose

    Is it Time to Speak to Someone?

    Sometimes we can handle change and adversity by ourselves and sometimes we need a little help. I’m here to lend that helping hand and offer a warm and encouraging environment where you can speak candidly and receive care, compassion and guidance.
