Many times during our lives, we find that change occurs gradually and comfortably in such a way that we can easily adjust to our new circumstances. However, we sometimes experience major changes or transitions that leave us feeling lost without a compass. At Corner Canyon Counseling, our therapist are equipped to help ease the discomfort that can come with such a life event.
Life transitions can come in all shapes and sizes. The following are some bridges frequently crossed by people as they journey through their lives:
- Spiritual or religious transition
- Moving out of a parent’s home
- Having a first (or another) baby
- Recognizing one’s sexuality or gender identity
- Coming out to others about one’s sexuality or gender identity
- Career transition
- Going away to college
- Returning from military duty
- Relocating to a new town/state/country
When struggling with a life transition, a therapist can be a great resource. Therapists can provide guidance and help someone decide how they want to approach their life transition, helping them consider various viewpoints and directions. A relationship with a therapist can also be incredibly valuable at this time because it will be a stable, predictable relationship during a time of change and uncertainty. Having the unwavering support of a caring clinician helps one feel more confident in their decisions and confident in their ability to cope with the changes in their lives.
