Counseling for Life Transitions in Columbia, MO

Life is be a beautiful, messy, and stressful experience, leaving you overwhelmed. Let's talk!

Did you experience a significant loss? Maybe a loved one, job, relationship, or pet? Are you beginning college or just graduating? Are you joining the workforce for the first time? Getting married, adopting, or having a child? Are you going through a breakup, separation, or divorce? Have you recently moved or relocated? Are you changing jobs or even your entire career path? Did someone you love pass away? These are significant changes you might be experiencing.

So, what are life transitions?

From the moment we are born to the moment we leave this earth, we are all in a constant state of transitioning and learning to adjust. Often this goes unnoticed as these changes can be incremental changes over more extended periods. Other times, it’s an earthquake or a tidal wave, rocking our foundation, dragging us under and drowning us. 

Not all of these transitions are unwelcome, but all involve some degree of change. For many of us, change can be scary – even the most incredible joyful times can require a significant degree of support as we find our balance again. You have already successful conquered many challenging transitions in your life and will likely face many more. You don't have to face them alone.

As a result of these experiences, you may be struggling with the feeling of loss. A loss is often associated with the milestones of our lives. Any significant loss or change can fill us with feelings of uncertainty, self-doubt, anxiety, despair, and dread. Whatever feelings you are experiencing are typical, although some may be deeply unwanted as they cause discomfort or distress. You may not feel adequately prepared to manage or cope with these feelings or events on your own. Fortunately, YOU are not alone. Our Brave therapists are here for  you.

We will help you navigate the steep road ahead. We are here to guide, support, encourage, and teach you the tools to face anything thrown your way.
