Change is an inevitable part of life. We learn, we grow, we achieve milestones and set new goals. Life transitions can come in many different forms: a change in where we live, the addition of or loss of a romantic partner or friend, a change in career or job, coming out to our family, friends, or co-workers about our sexuality and/or gender identity, the death of a loved one, the addition of a new family member, a physical or mental illness of our own or of a loved one – the list goes on and on. Even if change is positive, it can still bring stress as we adjust to our new way of life.
How Live True Counseling Can Help
Sometimes you can foresee the changes that are coming your way and sometimes you can only manage the outcome, whether good or bad. Therapy can help with both. If you know a change is coming, therapy can help you prepare for it mentally and emotionally and increase your confidence that you can manage the transition in a way that feels right to you. When we’re surprised by or caught off guard by a change, therapy can help us explore the change and adapt to it in a way that maintains or increases our well-being. Therapy can help us explore all of the things that often come along with a life transition, such as stress, feelings of anxiety or worry, and changes in eating or sleeping. Therapy can also help us grow from our experience of change as we learn new ways of adjusting.
Live True Counseling’s therapists have the experience and training to help our clients through the ups and downs of life in a way that meets the needs of our clients. We know that everyone reacts differently to even the same types of transitions and we strive to help you explore life changes in a way that feels meaningful to you. Our therapists will not tell you what you should and shouldn’t do in response to a change, but will help you determine a way to move forward that makes sense to you and that fits with your life.
