Life Transitions Therapy

Life transitions happen sooner or later in our lives, whether they are expected or unwanted and sudden. Many life cycle transitions can be overwhelming and challenging to handle alone. At Behr Psychology, we will support your emotional health through these difficult times and help you quickly navigate life’s transitions through professional therapy services tailored to your needs.
