Introducing Gretchen Echegoyen

Helping you to deal with changes in your life

I know that moving to a new phase of life is hard

Think back to when you last moved to a new phase – like when you moved from middle school to high school.  If you struggled to make that transition, don’t worry you are not alone.

Many people find it hard to make new changes in their lives.

Here are some things that may help you make the transition to a new phase of life:

  • Becoming your own best friend: Take time to take care of yourself. Set a scheduled time to become more aware of your needs in meaningful activities.

  • Give yourself time to adjust: It takes time to get used to a new way of being. Give yourself some time and soon you will be more comfortable with the new situation.

  • Seek support: Talk to your friends and family members about your new situation. They can offer you support and understanding.

  • Be positive: Believe in yourself and know that you can handle this new change.  Have faith that things will work out in the end.

I know that it’s not easy to make a new change in your life.  But with time and some effort, you will be able to adjust to the new situation.  Just believe in yourself and know that you can handle it.

Transition to a new you

It is common for people who are transitioning to a new phase of life to have to turn their back on the ways that they coped and lived in the past.  What worked for you as a teenager will not work in college.  And what worked in college will not work when you get a new job, especially if you have moved back home to get started.

Negative thinking and feeling uneasy are two of the most common symptoms that people experience when they are struggling with bad past decisions. Unfortunately, these same symptoms can also lead people to turn to self-medication and other forms of escape in an attempt to deal with their discomfort. However, these coping mechanisms only serve to further avoid the problem and prevent you from dealing with it in a healthy way.

Instead of relying on these unhealthy coping mechanisms, it is important to face your past head-on and work through the negative thoughts and feelings that are holding you back. This process can be difficult, but it is essential in order to move forward in a positive way. By becoming your authentic self, you can finally start to make the decisions that are right for you and begin to heal from your past.

My Process

First of all, I use a variety of tools, but first and foremost I believe in my clients. I help them connect to a higher power – however that shows up for them.  I am a big believer in teaching coping skills and other tools.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that can be particularly helpful for people who are struggling with negative self-talk and feelings of fraudulence. CBT can help you learn to identify and challenge the negative thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back from being your authentic self.

If you’re in the process of transitioning to a new phase of life, I can help you.  I’ve helped many people make successful transitions to college, careers, and adulthood. I know how to help you overcome the challenges you’re facing and become your best self. 

If you’re ready to start making positive changes in your life, contact me today. I’ll be glad to help you get started on the path to becoming your authentic self.
