“The only thing constant is change.”
~ Heraclitus, Greek philosopher
Has your life been touched by a major event such as a calling to a new career or vocation, a mid-life crisis, the diagnosis of a life-threatening or chronic illness, the end of a significant relationship, or layoffs at work? Are you having a hard time moving through and past the emotional turmoil? Do you feel completely stuck and like you need guidance getting back on track?
There’s no denying that life often presents us with our fair share of challenges, usually in the form of sudden change. These life transitions, even the positive ones, can throw us into a tailspin and leave us feeling stressed, confused and vulnerable. It may not seem like it now, but you have the power to not only overcome any adversity but also transform into a more authentic and confident version of yourself. By getting more connected to Nature (and your true nature in the process), the guidance and healing you yearn for can come.
Change Can be Beneficial
Change, even difficult change that is neither wanted or expected, can influence personal and spiritual growth. Change gives us the opportunity to see what we’re made of; to become stronger, more confident, and better prepared for what life throws at us next. With each new challenge, we develop new personal skills and obtain a greater awareness of ourselves, our family and our communities. You can learn to manage transitions more gracefully and find a way to grow from each new challenge.
Common Life Transitions
Some of the most common life transitions that I help clients navigate are:
- Moving away to college
- Adjusting to university life or your first professional job
- Getting married
- Having a new baby
- Empty nest syndrome
- Breakup, separation or divorce
- Infidelity recovery
- Job loss or major change in career
- Financial gain/loss
- Serious illness or disability
- Issues pertaining to aging
- Death of a loved one
- Questioning the meaning of life
- Questioning your faith/spirituality
- Questioning your sexual/gender identity
Is it Time to Speak to Someone?
Sometimes we can handle change and adversity by ourselves and sometimes we need a little help. I’m here to lend that helping hand and offer a warm and encouraging environment where you can speak candidly and receive care, compassion and guidance. While I have a variety of ways of working with people, I will say that life transitions are especially well suited to earth-based ceremonies and rites of passage work, which is what I specialize in.
If you or someone you love is struggling with a life transition and would like to explore how I can help, please be in touch. You don’t need to struggle alone.
