What is Life Transitions Coaching?
What Do I Mean by a Life Transition?
A life transition can be:
Personal and planned like switching jobs or moving to another city.
Personal and unexpected like a major health event or the death of a loved one.
Collective and planned like becoming a mentor or activist.
Collective and unexpected like experiencing life during a pandemic or following a catastrophic event like a hurricane.
You make assumptions about how your life will unfold. Change happens. Your life becomes disrupted. dreams shattered, and confidence is punctured, and even paralyzed. Transitions are emotional, you may experience fear, sadness, shame, guilt, anger, and loneliness, however you do not need to stay stuck.
Life changes sometimes in ways we expect and perhaps dream of
and at other times in ways we could never anticipate.
I would like to tell you the unexpected changes I experienced were easy, but the truth is they were tough. During these tough changes in my life, I found I was meeting myself coming and going. I felt disorganized and scattered. I felt like I was running in circles, and often I felt alone in the middle of the circle not knowing which way to turn. I was tired, weary, and stressed. There was little peace and quiet, or time for me to engage in the activities I enjoyed. I missed out on connecting with my family and friends. Things I felt passionate about were put to the side. I told myself to buck up, get up, and quit whining. I was holding on trying to survive.
How Can I Help You Through Your Life Transition?
I'll work with you to create a vision for your optimal future,
how ever you define it and based on your values.
Then, I'll support you as you make that vision a reality.
