Divorce, retirement, death, new career, empty nest, even buying or selling a house are just a few examples of life’s transitions that can leave you feeling preoccupied, stressed, worried, exhausted or overwhelmed. Adjustments are a part of everyone’s life and some changes are easier than others to adapt to.
Many women find themselves stressed out by the changes in life, even the events that “should” be positive. There might be too many worries on your mind, and they are affecting your sleep, relationships and sense of self.

Let’s work together and to explore your feelings, receive support, discover your strengths and develop new strategies to help you understand, cope and accept the transitions of your authentic life with positivity.
