Counseling for Life Transitions in Pooler, GA—Help with Major Life Changes

Counseling for Life Transitions in Pooler, GA—Help with Major Life Changes

Sometimes, life throws you a curveball. Sometimes, that curve ball can feel more like a ton of bricks hitting you than anything.

Life transitions can be a really good thing! They are a sign that your life is moving forward and taking a new, exciting twist. They could also be the result of a bad thing, an accident or diagnosis you weren’t expecting, or big news that shatters your 5-year plan.

Good or bad, life transitions can be terrifying. Sometimes, the mental and emotional impact of a life transition can be too much to carry on your own. This is where Thriveworks Pooler Life Transition Coaches can step in and help carry the load until you settle into your new routine.

Why Counseling for Life Transitions?

Counseling is rarely a long-term commitment. Most people are out within a few months, maybe a year or two. Counseling for life transitions with Thriveworks Pooler is more likely to be a short-term relationship. We will always be here for you and are just a phone call away if something else crops up, but sometimes, all you need is a few months of unconditional, loving support. That’s what our counselors love to give!

There is nothing weak about wanting a counselor with you as you navigate this new life transition. Sure, maybe your next-door neighbor’s best friend’s cousin went through something similar and came out fine, but you aren’t them! You’re you and you deserve the best life possible, one that is fulfilling and full of joy. A Thriveworks Pooler counselor will work with you to get there.

And the truth is- sometimes not getting help can be detrimental. When life stressors pile on top of each other and the future is unknown, negative side affects can take root and affect you for years to come. If you are experiencing some of the following, it might be worth checking in to a professional counselor:

  • Unusually high stress levels that you feel like you can’t cope with
  • A sense of dread that follows you around
  • Anxiety
  • Changes in eating or sleeping behavior
  • Trouble focusing
  • More problems with friends and family than normal
  • Angry outbursts
  • Difficulty making and attaining goals
  • A sense of displacement, like you know there’s more out there for you
  • Unsure of what the future might hold and being unwilling or unable to take the next step.
  • Constant doubt that you’re on the right path
  • Obsessing over details
  • Unhealthy coping mechanisms like drinking or self-harm

These are of course only a few of the potential symptoms a tough life change might bring. It all comes down to the one question- are you happy with where you are in life right now? Mentally, emotionally, physically, financially, all of it! If the answer is no, a Thriveworks Pooler Life Transition Counselor can help.

What Is Life Transition Counseling?

With something as broad as life transition counseling, there’s no bullet pointed way of describing what might go on in a Thriveworks Pooler session. This is because we always guarantee to be client-centered and judgement-free.

This means our focus will always be on you- your personality, situation, and goals. Since that will be unique to every person, so will our sessions.

To be judgment free means you are welcome to bring anything to a counseling session and we will unpack and explore it without judgment in an empathetic environment designed to give you the freedom to practice new skills and unlearn bad ones.

The goal of counseling for life transitions is to simply transition you to a new stage of life with all your health and happiness still intact! When in the middle of a big change, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important, who you are, what your main goals are, and the importance of taking care of yourself. Thriveworks Pooler Life Transitions is here to be that light and guide that will walk beside you as we traverse this new terrain.

While you are welcome to bring anything into a Thriveworks Pooler counseling session, we do see a few topics more commonly than others. A few examples of what we might talk about in a life transitions session include:

  • The loss or addition of a family member
  • A major move
  • A big career shifts
  • A change in location
  • Shift in beliefs
  • The diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Recovering from a hurt relationship
  • Car crash or property wreckage

These are just a few of the topics that can be discussed with a Thriveworks Pooler counselor! Whatever you are going through, you don’t have to go through it alone. Thriveworks Pooler is here for you and we are excited to work with you through this new phase of life.

Great Experience

My experience with Valery Dickinson has been amazing. She always takes her time, extremely knowledgeable, and challenges me in all aspects. I highly recommend.
Thriveworks Counseling Pooler


I can talk about Valeria forever because she was the only one who was able to help me with my condition. I was dealing with deep depression due to my husband’s passing from Covid complications. I was seen by many doctors but I was not getting better. My friend recommended to talk to Valeria. She was my last hope. From the first session I felt I could trust her. Valeria has a voice of an Angel. She makes you feel very happy and uncluttered. I was always anticipating for my next session with her because I knew that I am going to feel even better. Valeria is amazing and if you need help she is the one to go to!!!!

I can talk about Valeria and her skills forever because she is a master of her craft. I was struggling with depression due to my husband’s passing. I was seeing by doctors and therapist but none of them were able to help. My friend recommended Valeria. Valeria was my last hope. Right from the first session I felt very comfortable with her. Her voice was very calming and welcoming. My trust to her grew right away. She is amazing! With her guidance I am able to control my emotions and I am feeling much much better. I highly without doubt recommend her!!!

Great Guidance

My parents divorced when I was in high school, as a family we went to Thriveworks Counseling in the ATL area. Now I'm a student at GSU and saw that there's a location coming to Pooler soon. Just a short drive to see a therapist at a place that helped me and my family during a difficult time.
