Phase of Life Issues

Phase of Life Issues

Entering a new phase of life can be deeply disorienting, disrupt your sense of self, and cause painful emotional upheaval. Life events such as divorce, retirement, entering middle age, being diagnosed with an illness, and becoming an empty-nester are experiences that many people commonly struggle to deal with. Bridges to Recovery recognizes the impact major life changes can have, and offers a supportive therapeutic environment where you can process your experiences and restore emotional harmony. We conduct in-depth assessments to gain a complete understanding of your situation and its impact on your psychological state, to create a treatment plan addressing your unique needs. Through a personalized combination of individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and holistic therapies, our multidisciplinary team of clinicians guide you to explore your psychological distress and develop strategies to successfully cope with life changes. Our intensive treatment approach allows you to rapidly find relief from suffering, deepen your understanding of yourself, and gain confidence as you start a new chapter in your life.

For some, the struggle to manage life changes is so profound that it interferes with your ability to live a healthy, joyful life. Major life transitions can leave you questioning your place in the world, isolate you from loved ones, and cause serious anxiety about the future. You may find yourself behaving in ways that are out of the norm for you, taking unhealthy risks, and acting irresponsibly as you attempt to make sense of your identity and manage difficult emotions.

Symptoms of Phase of Life issues include:

  • Deep insecurity
  • Persistent worrying and intrusive thoughts
  • Acting in a way that is out of character, including engaging in reckless behavior
  • Overwhelming hopelessness
