“The only thing constant is change.”
~ Heraclitus, Greek philosopher
Has your life been touched by a major event such as a death, divorce layoffs at work, or something else important to you? 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, often 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 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 nor expected, can influence personal growth. 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 we help clients navigate are:
- Moving away to college
- Adjusting to university life or your first professional job
- Getting married
- Having a new baby
- Empty nesting syndrome
- Breakup, separation or divorce
- Infidelity recovery

Talking to a caring, well-trained professional can help.
