Therapy for Life Transitions
You may be a parent who is doing it all, but you are getting so tired of the routine.
Maybe you’re the sole breadwinner in your family and you are burnt out.
Perhaps, you are either newly single or have been for a while, and you are struggling to navigate the dating world.
Or you are a caregiver and the stress from the responsible is catching up with you.
Our narratives are always changing. No matter where we are, you can expect that life will shift during some seasons. Some of these changes may be good while others are more stressful. Sometimes bringing grief, anger, and pain. With all the changes that may be showing up, you may find yourself struggling with kids and parenting, relationships, work, and even taking care of parents or grandparents.
Despite the unexpected circumstances, we are resilient people. When change comes, we either move with it or against it. This brings up fears, shame, and exhaustion. Naturally, this may impact your mental health and cause you to need more support than you anticipated. At Introspective Counseling in Detroit, MI, there are many reasons a person in a life transition may come to therapy, but we are here to listen and support you through each change.
Common Reasons People Come into Therapy for Life Transitions
Parenting Burnout and Mom Burnout
Many women who are overwhelmed moms are dealing with similar struggles as you. Mom’s love their children, but they feel they are doing it all which leads to mom burnout. You want to raise happy, healthy, and confident children, but sometimes, when you are always doing all the work as a stressed-out working mom, it can become overwhelming. We want to do what is best for our kids, but when we are not taking care of ourselves, burnout sets in and leaves us frustrated. When you are parenting on your own, or the sole breadwinner in the family and still expected to do the most, mom burnout can set in more quickly than normal. It may be time to get a second perspective on managing this.
Taking care of family members, whether parents, siblings, grandparents, is both rewarding and complicated. On the one hand, it is an honor, but I can also leave you feeling burnt out and worried about the future. With all the effort you spend taking care of your family, you hardly have time to live your life and take care of yourself. It is like you are losing yourself. If you are experiencing overwhelm, changes in appetite, loss of interest in activities, low energy, and are beginning to neglect your own basic needs, it may be time to get help with caregiver support.
Relationships Advice for Singles
Developing a meaningful connection is not always easy. Some people get into relationships easily, while others take time. Often therapists provide services for couples and married individuals, but what about singles who are working on themselves to be in healthy relationships? If you are tired of picking the wrong people, being in toxic relationships, or need help developing more satisfying and sustainable relationships, then therapy can help. It may be hard to voice why your relationships are unsatisfying or where growth can occur, but a therapist can help you break down barriers in relationship therapy for singles in Detroit, MI.
