Life Transitions Counseling

Life Transitions Counseling

Throughout your life, you will and have experienced numerous changes – some of them planned.  Mostly though, the life transitions you experience are sudden.  These changes can knock you off your feet – even the positive ones – and leave you feeling overwhelmed, vulnerable, and perplexed.  At times, various transitions in your life can cause stress, anxiety and depression.

Some of these transitions may include:

  • Death of a spouse, family member, friend, co-worker
  • Job change
  • Infidelity/betrayal
  • Divorce/separation/breakup
  • Moving away
  • Empty Nesters
  • Serious illness
  • Aging Process
  • Retirement
  • Coming out to family and friends
  • New baby
  • Parenting

As difficult, tumultuous, and sometimes unexpected change can be, I’ll help you to embrace them and remain open to those experiences.  In addition, you can develop more emotional resiliency and growth.  All of these new perspectives can help you to be prepared for any and all transitions that will eventually take place in your life.

I can help you with life transitions at Michaele Knous Counseling and Therapy in Naperville IL
