My Approach

Transitions are hard and life is full of them. There are new jobs, new homes, changes in relationships, etc. You may be experiencing a change in your faith or beliefs, or you may be experiencing grief after a death, loss of relationship, or loss of a dream or path. While transitions may come with joy, so many other feelings surround them as well: sadness, fear, anxiety, exhaustion. You may be frustrated that what once worked for you isn’t working in this season, and you don’t know what to do next. Maybe these feelings are new to you and you don’t know how to handle or express them. Maybe you’ve felt this way for a long time and you’ve reached a point of needing some support. You may be curious about why you do the things you do, and why you are the way you are. When you look at your life or the world at large right now, you might be feeling stuck, sick, sad, or helpless and may be wondering, “where do I go from here?”

Take your next step toward growth.
