Life Transitions Q & A

What are life transitions?

Life transitions are major events in your life that bring significant change to your circumstances, mindset, or well-being. While many life transitions are positive overall, they can still come with challenges that you might not anticipate initially.

Some of the most common life transitions are:

  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • Having a baby
  • Death of a loved one
  • Moving 
  • Starting a new career
  • Job loss
  • Major accidents

Whether your life transition is negative, positive, or neutral, the changes can increase your stress significantly. Rein Center provides integrative psychiatric health services to help you cope with the major changes in your life. 

Which challenges can life transitions bring?

Even when life transitions are positive, they can bring challenges you might not anticipate. Stress is perhaps the most likely challenge you’ll experience associated with a life change, which can bring about additional complications of its own. 

When you visit Rein Center before, during, or after a life transition, you can bring up concerns about:

  • Stress-related illnesses
  • Sleep changes or insomnia
  • Burnout
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Migraines
  • Substance use

Through counseling and other services, you can regain a sense of control over your mental health and well-being. You can develop coping skills to help you get through the period of transition until you feel a sense of normalcy again. 

How can I cope with the challenges that come with life transitions?

Rein Center provides holistic and integrative services to help you through the most significant transitions in your life. No matter which type of transition you’re going through, you might benefit from:

Psychological counseling

Rein Center provides personalized and confidential psychiatric therapy using evidence-based techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR). 


Meditation helps you stay mindful of your surroundings and present in the moment. It can help improve your sleep and reduce stress. 


An ancient Chinese medicine practice, acupuncture reprograms your body by stimulating specific points using fine needles. It works for stress and anxiety relief as well as a variety of physical health conditions. 

Other helpful services include yoga classes, supplements and nutraceuticals, and individualized wellness programs. Medication management is also available if needed.
