Our Relationship with Transition =
Our Relationship with Success

People of all ages go through multiple transitions all the time. Some are slow, some are fast, some are chosen, and some are not. Some feel like tragedies or loss and some are wonderful like buying a house or getting married. But all transitions create challenge. It takes energy to go through change and so it is always a time of letting go and reinventing. This is a place where people can become profoundly stuck, even depressed and sometimes finding themselves in crisis of learning how to go through change that feels healthy and empowering. Now imagine that most of us are going through multiple changes at the same time.  Consider the profound impact that has on our life and our expectations of ourselves.

“Donna wasn’t afraid to uncover the ways she saw me sabotaging myself and kindly offer insights for me to consider and reflect upon. I was able to take her suggestions and create meaningful change in my life. I felt supported and cared for throughout our time together.  Thank you Donna!”
