Big life changes can be super exciting…

But what do you do if the change leaves you feeling depressed and anxious?

Life presents all kinds of changes that we often look to celebrate: graduation, starting college, getting a new job, having a baby, retirement. But what happens when the change leaves you feeling overwhelmed and uncertain? What happens when you feel more anxiety about the change than you do excitement? And how the heck do you keep moving forward when a life change has resulted in you feeling down and depressed?

Dealing with the Rollercoaster of Emotions during Life Changes

Although this news may be disappointing, it is normal for big life changes – even “good ones” – to trigger all sorts of emotions. We hope that life these changes bring happiness and excitement, but sometimes we find that change has triggered feelings such as stress, anxiety and fear, loneliness and anger.

We specialize in helping you navigate these transitions, providing a safe space for you to explore your feelings, gain insight into your reactions, and develop a roadmap for moving forward.
