For Individuals

Are you agonizing over a situation and need to develop a clear path forward?

Do you feel confused, worried, stuck, overwhelmed or frustrated by the things that are affecting your life?

Do you feel stuck in a never-ending in-between place?

Transition Designs can help.

A transition represents a passage from one state to another.

It means that a new start is required. In order for that new start to happen, an ending has likely already occurred or will be necessary. A change is more situational, and can be based on your job, a move, a marriage, etc. Changes can occur quickly and are focused on an outcome. Transitions, however, tend to be psychological. They involve feelings of loss, anxiety, and vulnerability.

A loss of the familiar.

Entering the unknown.

A feeling of not knowing how to get from ‘here’ to ‘there.’

Transition Designs helps individuals learn how to enjoy their days again. We help you prioritize what is in front of you in a way that is meaningful. Whether you are evaluating a career change, wanting to incorporate more life balance, working through grief, facing retirement or a significant life milestone, we can help.

More than worth the time.  Melissa convinced me that I needed to take time from working IN my business to take time to work ON my business. My results are still coming in, but I see that my time is MUCH more efficient and my results are MUCH easier to achieve. I only wish I had started with Melissa sooner!
