Starting Over: How to Transition Gracefully in a Chaotic World

Supporting Veterans, Service Members, and Military Spouses

Did you know that the average military family moves every 2 to 3 years? Of course you did; you are living that life! Join Jeridith Lord, licensed clinical professional counselor and PhD student, for a discussion from the perspective of a seasoned military spouse on how to "start over" gracefully. Using principles of acceptance and commitment therapy, Jeredith will help you strategize ways to overcome your transition anxiety and make your next move — or current move — a smooth one.
