Mid-Life Transitions & Adjustments

 

You were a young professional with the world ahead of you, and suddenly you’re middle-aged?  WTF, right?  When did that happen?

And watching your parents age is not giving you anything to look forward to!

Middle age is about reconciling what you have done in life and what you still want to do with the time you have left.  However, you might feel trapped by family and career obligations – unable to live the life you really want.

Or maybe you don’t know what you want, but this is not it.

It doesn’t have to be this way.  Life is a quick trip, so bring your mid-life crisis, and let’s work through it together.

Divorce & Relationship Recovery

Recovering from the loss of a significant relationship can be incredibly difficult and takes time to process.

Whether the loss is an intimate partner or a family member, this is a safe place to process your grief, devastation, panic, guilt, confusion, anger, relief, and other complex emotions.

So, bring your pain, and let’s work on it together.

Reinventing Yourself

Every so often, we need to reinvent ourselves.  Sometimes these are welcome opportunities, and other times, we wish things could stay the same.

Reinvention opportunities often happen during life transitions, such as:

  • Young adulthood
  • New parents
  • Empty nest
  • Mid-life crisis
  • Divorce
  • Death of a significant other
  • Retirement

Many people reinvent themselves multiple times throughout their lives.  It’s an opportunity to create a more fulfilling and purposfull future.

    Self Actualization

    Self-actualization is the process of achieving your full potential and becoming the best version of yourself. It involves developing your skills, talents, and abilities to the fullest and using them to make a positive contribution to the world.

    We can work together to:

    • Identify your passions and interests.
    • Set goals and work toward them.
    • Learn from past experiences.
    • Identify new experiences.
    • Learn to practice mindfulness.
    • Cultivate supportive relationships.

    Let’s work together to create the life you want!

    Unexpected Life Adjustments

    You didn’t see that coming, right?  Maybe in hindsight, you could have, but hindsight is often 20/20.  

    Now that your life has been turned upside down, you are left to pick up the pieces.  But where do you go from here?

    How do you start over?  How do you move on?  Will you ever be happy again?

    That is largely up to you – but you don’t have to walk this path alone!  So, bring the really difficult stuff and your determination, and let’s work together to pick up the pieces and create a new future.  

     

    Marriage & Couple’s Counseling

    Relationships can be the source of our greatest joy but also our greatest distress.  Your relationship can benefit from:

    • Improved communication skills.
    • Learning how to really listen and understand each other’s perspectives.
    • Having productive conversations about gridlocked issues.
    • Rediscovering each other and growing close again. 
    • Healing old wounds and regrettable incidences.
    • Improved intimacy. 

    Let’s examine what brings you meaning so you can reinvent yourself and thrive during your retirement years.

    Disability Acceptance & Adjustment

    Some disabilities are life-long, while others happen suddenly – due to a health condition or accident.

    Living with Life-Long Disabilities
    You’ve been struggling your whole darn life. Maybe your disability is invisible, and very few people see your struggle.  Or maybe your disability is obvious, and you’re tired of being everyone’s “inspiration.”

    It can be really helpful to look at your disability through a new lense, one of self-acceptance and compassion (and through the social model of disability).  You’re not defective or a burden – society needs to accomodate your needs.

    New Disability Adjustment
    Significant health challenges and accidents can leave you with a very different body and life than you had before.  Maybe you can’t imagine how you’re going to live like this.  You may be grieving while also trying to pick up the pieces and figure out a path forward.  You don’t have to do this alone.

    Let’s process this together and figure out a path to a rich and meaningful life.

    Anxiety, OCD, Phobias, and More

    We also help with anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, depression, stress, overwhelm, burnout, and other very common yet debilitating problems.

    These feelings of being stuck, unmotivated, broken, uninspired, worthless, hopeless, and other feelings are common, but they can often be overcome.

    It takes hard work, but we can do it together!
