It helps you to learn more effective ways in dealing with those situations. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort. You and I will identify your goals -- what you want to have happen, and agree on how you'll know when you're making progress. I will talk to you about the length of time it may take to help you see changes. Progress, and change, can happen.

A life transition experience can be positive or negative, planned or unexpected. Some transitions happen without warning, and they may be quite dramatic, as in cases of accidents, death, divorce, job loss, or serious illness. Other life transitions come from positive experiences such as getting married, going away to college, starting a new job, moving to a new city. Even though events like these are usually planned and anticipated, they can be just as life-altering as the unexpected events. Whether positive or negative, life transitions cause us to leave behind the familiar and force us to adjust to new ways of living.
