Life is full of transitions.

We move through most of them without really noticing. But some require us to take a deep breathe and jumping in hoping for a soft landing. Usually that is what awaits us and continue to move forward to the next one.

Every successful transition emboldens us. We start to look forward to what awaits. Meeting each new experience with a confidence and excited energy.

But what happens when the landing doesn’t feel solid or safe?

Instead, it seems as if you are not quite able to get your footing. You see threats and limitations instead. Confidence and excitement give way to worry, doubt and apathy. Sometimes even fear and depression.

It certainly doesn’t feel like you’re thriving. Everyone keeps talking to you about seizing the opportunities, but it seems you aren’t able to see the opportunities – much less seize them. What you can connect with is the sense of loss and disappointment.

You are not failing – even if it feels like it.

But right now life isn’t meeting your expectations and you are doubting your capabilities. You do need to grieve.

It is scary.

You do not need to struggle through this on your own – nor should you.

Working with a therapist allows you to take the time to really define what is important to you and how you can thrive.

Our relationship is in addition to relying on your personal support system. A therapist helps you grieve and move through the feelings of loss and disappointment. We help you prepare to confront the changes you face on your terms with your intentions at the forefront.

It’s not just about achieving a soft landing –
it’s about creating the space and life you desire.

There is no defined life transition that brings our clients to us. But some common transitions that our clients are working through include:

  • Gender Identity
  • LGBTQIA+ Issues
  • Moving to Chicago
  • Graduating from College
  • Parenting
  • Relationship Break-up or Divorce
  • Changes in Social Landscape
  • Changing Careers
  • Empty Nest
  • Chronic Illness
  • Health Changes
  • Retirement
  • Grief

Major transitions in our lives can refer to any significant life experience and they are not always overtly negative.  Adjusting or accommodating the changes can be difficult, but it’s not impossible. Therapy that focuses on these transitions can help you cope with the emotional and mental toll that often accompanies these major life changes.

If you find yourself feeling any of the following:

  • Unresolved hostility, resentment, or disappointment
  • Fear about the future or sense of fragility
  • Upset about how others behaviors are affecting you
  • Feeling that others aren’t giving you a chance
  • Loneliness, or worry that you won’t ever feel settled and comfortable again
  • Guilt about choices you made
  • General anxiety, irritability, or panic attacks
  • Grief or depression surrounding the transition
  • Stress or anxiety about financial burdens

… therapy can help.

Therapy can help.

Working one-on-one with a therapist, you can learn to accept and address feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, guilt or depression. And clarify what you want in life and how you want to live you life. Your therapist can help you find ways to cope with your uncomfortable emotions and difficult interactions.  Therapy can help you process experiences and emotions in a healthy way so that you can work to move forward in your life.

Therapy can give you the power to reclaim your life. Together, we will figure out what is holding you back and find a path to creating the life you want.
