Life Altering Events, Transitions & Illness

 A Safe and Accepting Place

When life hands you an event or illness that changes the course of your life, imagine having a safe and accepting place to go for support.  

Life Altering Event and Illness

When life altering events or illness happen, your day-to-day life may have changed significantly.  Often a person feels alone and isolated in dealing with the changes brought about by these events.  Know that you are not alone.

Life altering events include marriage, divorce or break ups, having children, children leaving home, deaths, and more. Illness of any kind can shape your life in new and sometimes difficult ways.  

Hidden grief often underlies unexplained emotions.  Anger can produce unexpected reactions.  Many women believe they have to  “stand strong” for the family resulting in stuffed emotions and burn-out.  You may have no place to turn to release the fear, anxiety and stress that comes with these changes.  Therapy can help.

 

Mid-Life Transitions

Once we pass age 30, each decade brings new transitions in family, career, and personal identity.  Men and women in mid-life often review the past and wondering what the future holds.  Career goals shift as time passes and experience is gained.   As children grow and leave home, the identity of parent and spouse shifts to a greater focus on personal goals outside the family.  Relationships take on new meaning.  The “empty nest” experience benefits from additional support as you step into new adventures.  It is a time to look at one’s personal uniqueness and create a design for the future.

For women, menopause brings changes in body, mind and spirit.  Lifestyle and diet can impact the hormonal fluctuations during this time and nutritional support is essential.  Many women seek counseling as a way to cope with the impact of menopausal changes.

Are you ready to:

  • Normalize life in the face of illness or change?
  • Process grief, changes in self-concept, and other emotions?
  • Learn coping strategies for the stress of life transitions?
