Life Transitions


In life, we all go through periods of adjustment, significant changes, and times of transition. It’s part of the human experience.

While these experiences can be exciting, they can also be fraught with anxiety, ambivalence, and a loss of a previous sense of self.

Some examples include:

  • Career change
  • Moving 
  • Becoming a parent
  • Becoming a caretaker
  • Beginning or ending a significant relationship
  • A general feeling of uncertainty with regards to taking the next step in your life

“All life transitions have a pattern, which if acknowledged will make tough times more comprehensible.”


Therapy for life transitions

Often, these life changes can be stressful, regardless if they are by choice or happen due to unwanted circumstances. Therapy can help you process your feelings and make sense of your experience during a time that can feel like un-navigated terrain. Our therapists will guide you through this transition process and help you to feel more secure in your choices and in yourself.

Meet the team

Westside Psych, a Group Psychology Practice, was co-founded in 2018 by a team of psychologists who saw a need for comprehensive and high-quality mental health care. We have since expanded our practice to include other mental health professionals and provide training and supervision to pre-licensed therapists. Each of our therapists have unique areas of specialization and expertise, which allows us to collaborate and provide a range of care to individuals, couples, families, and organizations.
