Transitions

Going through transitions in life can be overwhelming and confusing – a death in the family, career change, retirement, care taking roles, changes in health/disability,  coping with adult children’s issues/life stage, raising grandchildren, or going through a divorce. Adjusting to these new roles and stages in life can lead to mental and physical fatigue for many people

  We see adults in all stages of transitions who may be struggling with:

 

• Depression

• Anxiety

• Uncertainty about the future/hopelessness

• Fatigue, chronic pain, or other physical difficulties

• Betrayal in intimate relationships

• Past/present relational conflict, toxic patterns or abuse issues

• Financial stressors

• Health issues

• Grief /loss

• Finding your identity once a significant relationship has ended

 

  Journeys Can Help With Your Transition

 

In the midst of these confusing situations and difficult symptoms it can be helpful to have a compassionate and safe professional walking alongside you. Working with someone who understands these transitions and life circumstances can assist you with navigating through these changes.

 

A Journeys therapist is well prepared to assist you with these symptoms, changes, and new roles. With unique specializations and life experiences, our team approach will help ensure that you find the counselor that is best suited for you. Working with a Journeys therapist will help you to gain an understanding of theses transitions and help you to move forward with increased clarity and confidence.

 

You may still feel concerned about beginning therapy…

“I am afraid the therapist won’t understand what I am going through, my circumstance is very different from other people I know”.

 

Every person’s experience is unique. Journeys counselors are especially good at listening and seeing your situation from your perspective. Counseling is a collaborative experience between you and the therapist.  You and the therapist will work together to sort out your feelings, thoughts, and needs. Treatment may include: talking through issues; questions and dialogue to clarify issues; writing about experiences; reading related materials; identifying feelings, needs, and boundaries; prioritizing issues; empathy and support; and coping skill strategies. This collaborative experience will bring about relief and empower you to move forward in life in the face of these transitions.

We generally recommend scheduling an initial assessment with a Journeys counselor to evaluate your specific needs, as well as determining best options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the perfect fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for you.
