It doesn't matter if a big change in your life was unexpected or planned, happy or sad, wanted or unwanted, or sudden or a long time coming....no matter what, all life changes cause us to go through a period of adjustment. Sometimes, we are able to make this adjustment easily. But other times, this adjustment brings added stress, anxiety, feelings of loss, and sadness, and these changes can begin to negatively affect our daily lives and ability to function normally.
Life changes may include, but are not limited to:
- Entering college
- Birth of a child
- Job Loss or New Job
- Career Changes
- Changes in Financial Status
- Kids leaving home
- Health Issues
- Death of Loved One
- Caring for an Sick or Elderly Family Member
Therapy can help you discover and process your true feelings about any change in your life, thereby reducing your emotional distress.
