At the heart of the Women’s Resource Center are programs that support individuals through transition, at any age and any stage of life. Our signature program, Life Transitions, guides individuals through self-examination, goal setting, and action planning, helping you define what has heart, meaning and passion for you, and giving you the tools to move toward living a life of your own design.
Life Transitions offers an opportunity to gain a healthy perspective on all the changes that life brings, whether those changes are positive or negative, no matter what age we are. Even more, Life Transitions is learning how to work toward the changes in our life that we desire, to identify our values and then live according to those values. When we live according to our values, we live a life that has meaning and fulfillment.
Our Life Transitions facilitator, Vicky MacRitchie, MA, LPC, is available by appointment to work with you one-on-one to help you identify how you can move toward the life that you desire. The Women’s Resource Center, in partnership with Vicky, is pleased to be able to offer this personal coaching at a very affordable rate of $60/hour. Call 541-390-3936 to set up an appointment that fits your schedule.
Here are some testimonials from recent Life Transitions students:
I loved the mapping training. Really made me want more information about it all. It was really interesting to be working out of the right side of my brain. It felt more fluid and at the same time enabled me to hear the constant restrictive chatter that goes on in my head. Quite an experience! I would highly recommend Vicky’s training. – Ellen
The initial writing exercise is great to go back to at the end- loved that. The concept of fusion was HUGE for me. I’ve had lots of self-development info but never heard it put quite like that. I will take that one with me forever… I love ‘I think, I feel, I want’ and continuously going back to that model, as well as the house analogy for identifying how our past supports us/is under us/part of us/however you want to say it- both concepts are extremely helpful. Whether it’s transitioning from one day to the next or trying to survive a ‘crisis’, the principles taught in this class work like the rudder of a boat, helping me navigate through my journey. I have lived these principles since taking LT I and am so amazed and satisfied with my life. I am truly living my values and feel great about it. –Carrie
I am doing absolutely wonderful! I’m still growing and moving forward. It is amazing how your life can change just by getting a different perspective on things. And by becoming aware that the old survival skills no longer work and therefore you need to seek new ones! – Darlene
