Life Stress and Adjustment Problems
Adjustment problems may occur when an individual is unable to adapt to the demands of their social, emotional, or situational environment.
These issues typically occur when there is an identifiable stressor, which can be of varying intensity, from relatively minor to traumatic. Examples may include: separation/divorce, losing one’s job, or moving to a new area. Adjustment issues can be complex in that our own life experiences, both from the past and more recent, can impact how we cope. Our psychologists have the experience and training to help identify where people may be getting ‘stuck’ in the process of overcoming some of life’s many challenges and stressors. Therapeutic interventions are tailored specifically to the needs of our clients and their individual circumstances with the goal of promoting healthy functioning in the face of adversity.
