Life adjustment

What is life adjustment?

Life is full of adjustments, sometimes hourly sometimes daily, and certainly seasonally. Life adjustments range from employment change / loss, relocation, divorce, child custody, blending families, health challenges and many others. These changes often cause what is referred to generically as “STRESS.” Life adjustments can morph into anxiety, depression, anger and even trauma. A skilled counselor can help one navigate these adjustments and find ways to maintain control of the associated emotions and actions. Life Adjustments shouldn’t derail a person from fulfilling their duties and certainly should not prevent one from fulfilling their dreams or purpose in life. Change is inevitable; how one deals with that change can oftentimes be positively productive with counseling.

Grief and loss is an individual experience. No person experiences loss in the same way, which leads to a lot of confusion. Grief can also bring up past losses, which can increase the emotion and amplifies the current experience. When grief seems to overtake other areas of your life, increases for no apparent reason or just lingers too long; it is likely to be preventing one from functioning to there fullest. Grief should ideally be incorporated into the forward flowing motion of our life. We help our clients identify what loss they are experiencing, what losses they have experienced and help them walk through the process of grief on their own terms.

Treatment Approach for life stressors

Due to the individual nature of the presenting life issue treatment can vary. Your therapist will work with you to discuss what you are going through and help you develop coping skills, express your emotions and talk through what is happening. They also pull from several modes of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), relaxation techniques and more. Most of all they will offer support you through a difficult time.
