Adjustment & Life Transitions

What is an Adjustment Disorder?


Human's go through adjustments and life transitions every day. Each and every change or transition in life is accompanied by emotions of all shapes and sizes. Whether it's excitement for a new promotion opportunity paired with the loss of relationships with current co-workers, grief over the loss of a loved one paired with gratitude they are no longer suffering, or processing the memories associated with moving to another state, a variety of emotions will naturally arise. 


An Adjustment Disorder can manifest when someone is unable to process and cope with the range of emotions associated with a change that causes distress. Anxious or depressed moods and symptoms, as well as some disturbances in our behaviors or relationships present. These symptoms tend to resolve once the initial stressor is eliminated, and/or a new coping method is successfully implemented to manage the symptoms.

How can we help with life adjustments and transitions?

Our holistic approach in both counseling and wellness services, such as reiki and yoga, focuses on integrating the mind and body into one. We will assist you in understanding the the normal feelings and emotions that arise throughout life transitions and developmental stages. Art Therapy can allow you to express the feelings that you are having a hard time verbalizing. Embodied Therapy can support the integration of mental processes and physical manifestations of normal stress associated with change. You don't have to walk through the journey of life alone.
