LIFE TRANSITIONS

Navigating Life's Transitions with Clarity and Resilience
Whether expected or sudden, life transitions like geographical moves, career changes, loss, or major milestones can uproot our daily routines and sense of self. While transitions are inevitable, they don't have to be insurmountable or derail your well-being.

At our practice, we provide compassionate guidance to help you adapt to life's shifts with greater ease. Our experienced therapists understand the complex emotions that can arise during transitional periods and will support you through:

Significant Life Milestones: Marriages, divorces, graduations, retirement, existential turning points

Living Situation Transitions: Relocation, moving, residential changes

Family and Relationship Transitions: Becoming a parent, "empty nest," caring for aging parents, separation/divorce

Career and Financial Transitions: Job changes, unemployment, entrepreneurship, inheritance

Health Transitions: Chronic illness diagnosis, disability, accident/injury recovery, body changes

Comprehensive Support for Your Journey

Transitions often involve feelings of uncertainty, grief over the familiar, and struggling to redefine your identity and purpose. It's natural and normal to feel anxious, stressed, or reactive as you adjust to the new circumstances.

 

Our role is to normalize your experience, equip you with coping tools for each phase, and empower you to embrace life's inevitable changes with resilience, wisdom, and self-compassion. Our holistic approach to life transitions draws from various therapeutic modalities tailored to your unique needs:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) focuses on cultivating psychological flexibility. ACT helps individuals develop a different relationship with difficult thoughts and make room for unpleasant feelings, and learn new ways to interact with them while making values-based choices in life.

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

ERP stands out as most effective treatment method for OCD. This cognitive-behavioral intervention entails individuals willingly confronting the very triggers and thoughts (images) that provoke anxiety without engaging with rituals. Through consistent practice of exposure exercises, individuals will learn how to interact with their inner experiences and find new ways to cope with uncertainties. The goal is to help individuals live a fulfilling, values-based life while embracing uncertainty.

Mindfulness Practices

Practicing mindfulness can help individuals develop a different relationship with their mind and learn how to observe their thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations without getting caught up in ideas and opinions. Being mindful means observing our inner experience non-judgmentally while staying present with what we have chosen to focus on.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT helps individuals identify patterns of thinking that are often related to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), such as all-or-nothing thinking, mind reading, thought-action fusion, and intolerance of uncertainty. Tools such as cost-benefit analysis, externalization of voices, Socratic questioning, survey method, and others are implemented in the treatment process. One of the most important cognitive behavioral interventions while treating OCD is Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).

"I highly recommend Kulliki. As a therapist and a mother, she is empathetic and warm, which helped me connect right away with her and share my story. When we met her, I had unresolved anger and grief at becoming a mother and losing my independence that were impacting my relationship with my husband. Kulliki helped me express these emotions while realizing I was judging myself too harshly and provided me with tools and strategies for the times when I felt falling down in a rabbit's hole of self-judgement. I was able to reconnect with my husband and regained confidence and acceptance as a woman, a mom and a professional."
