Life Transitions and Grief Work

When summer turns to fall we often do not feel ready.  We long for more days of summer and become saddened by the thought of shorter, colder days ahead.    Over time, we may begin to let in the beauty and benefit of the new season.  When life changes, a counselor can help you on the path to adjustment and rediscovery.

Life transitions & Grief and Loss

When life throws us curve balls, or when we're stuck and know change needs to happen, collaboration with a therapist can be whats needed to move forward with peace and confidence.  

Though change may feel uncomfortable at first, the end result of change is often positive.  There are many reasons that individuals may seek counseling for life transitions:

  • Changes in relationships status and divorce
  • Empty nest issues
  • Feeling unsatisfied with current life circumstances or employment
  • Preparing to leave for college (teens)
  • Retirement
  • Grieving the death of a loved one
  • Entering the work force (post college)
  • Adjusting to being a new parent

At Denver Wellness Counseling, our therapists are experts at walking beside you through significant changes and finding the opportunities for personal growth.   Though our treatment approach will depend on your unique needs, life transition counseling often includes self-exploration towards emotional clarity, re-visioning one's future, exploring your unique values and strengths, fostering empowerment, tackling worry about things not in our control, and building coping techniques to endure life stressors.  

Whether you're facing an upcoming change, in the middle of change, or in the process of adjusting after a change, therapy can help you prepare, accept, adjust, and re-discover who you are.   At Denver Wellness Counseling, you will have the opportunity to explore and authenticate your personal identity, to foster empowerment and resilience.
