Flourishing Families Counseling

Adjusting to Change / Life Transitions

Change can be challenging, even when it’s a positive change. It is common for a person to undergo significant changes over the course of their lifetime. A new job, a marriage, a birth, and other life changes are generally positive changes, but they may each come with their own stressors. Major life transitions, including moving, retiring, or reaching the “empty nest” phase, can also be stressful.

When to Talk to a Therapist

If you are experiencing major life changes, it is important to seek help from a professional. These changes can include moving to a new city, starting a new job, getting married, having a baby, or going through a divorce. Adjusting to these changes can be difficult, and you may feel like you are not coping well. If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed, you should seek help from a therapist or counselor. They can help you learn new coping skills and give you support during this difficult time.

If you are experiencing any of the following difficulties, it is important to seek help:

  • Adjusting to a major life change
  • Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed
  • Coping with stress
  • Communicating with others
  • Managing your emotions
  • Sleeping or eating
  • Using alcohol or drugs to cope with your emotions
