Life Transitions

Scenic path across Azores rain forest at S. Miguel IslandA life transition can be a planned or unplanned change in ones life and can leave you feeling fragile and vulnerable. Even if the life transition is a positive change, it is important to process the thoughts and feelings associated with the transition.

Examples of Life transitions

  • Changing jobs
  • Divorce
  • Getting married
  • Having a baby
  • Leaving for college
  • Relocation
  • Retirement
  • Serious illness
  • Significant loss (of a person, job, pet, or anything important)

Life transitions challenge us to find new ways of adapting and require us to learn new coping skills. At Westmoreland Psychotherapy Associates, we provide a supportive environment where our clients will work with our therapists to gain concrete skills to help plan for change, handle change that has already occurred, and manage stress that may be associated with the life transition.
