Life can feel overwhelming and destabilized even when dealing with its ordinary ebbs and flows. These typical events can include the developmental stages of birth and death, marriage and divorce, graduation or returning to school, career transitions, illness and finding healthy lifestyles and many others. Our reactions to these life events are also influenced and colored by experiences from our past and our current life circumstances.
The key to living an emotionally healthy and grounded life is to develop the tools and perspectives necessary to face and proceed through these life events. Without the appropriate skills, changes can trigger anxiety, depression, relationship stress and numerous other psychological struggles. Psychotherapy can be extremely helpful in the development and application of healthy skills and tools.
