If you are going through a life transition, you may experience uncertainty about which way to turn, or have dreams you've put off, or sense that life has lost it's balance, or you maybe feel out of control or unable to think straight. This may be due to Retirement; Divorce or Separation; Career Change or Job Search; Empty-Nest; etc.  Skipping Stones sessions take place by internet or phone if you'd like, no office visits required.  Skipping Stones also helps with family mediation, when a 3rd party is needed to help make decisions for the safety and well-being of your loved ones.
