Are you experiencing stress, anxiety or depression as the result of a major life change? Life changes can be exciting: new job, recent marriage, birth of a child. Life changes can also be terrifying: loss of job, divorce, death of a loved one. You may initiate some life changes: planned retirement, move to another city or another country. Other life changes seem to force themselves upon you: a toxic relationship with a loved one that is no longer acceptable, unexpected injury, loved one that has betrayed your trust. Whether life changes are expected or not, they can be stressful and sometimes our fears of the unknown take over making it difficult to move forward. Even positive life changes involve adjusting and overcoming anxiety of the unknown. I’m available to face the challenges of change with you and together we can meet fear, worry, and uneasiness with courage. Facing any type of change requires taking big risks. We all have times in our lives when we need to dig deep and re-discover our strength and passion in life to overcome our fears and get back in touch with our source of vitality. As Clarissa Pinkola Estes says, “We are able vessels…Do not lose heart. We were made for these times.”
