Self-Discovery Q&A

What is self-discovery?

Self-discovery is an ongoing, dynamic process in which you look inside yourself to learn who you are, how you feel, and what defines your core values and aspirations. This journey is about discovering what it means to be you, not what others expect you to be.

As you define your inner truths, you can build a life that will make you truly happy. Without self-discovery, you're more likely to pursue goals imposed on you by others, which takes an emotional toll and leaves you drained.

How are life transitions related to self-discovery?

Life transitions involve any major change that occurs throughout your lifetime. Common transitions include:

  • Going to college
  • Changing jobs
  • Losing your job
  • Moving to a new location
  • Marriage
  • Arrival of a new baby
  • Divorce or separation
  • Retirement
  • Serious illness or disability
  • Death of a loved one or friend


Self-discovery and life transitions share a close relationship. Life transitions occur every time you question the meaning of your life and your place in the world. At the same time, every common life transition opens the door to deeper self-discovery.

How can counseling support self-discovery and life transitions?

These are just a few ways Traci supports self-discovery and life transitions:


Many people have a hard time finding quiet moments to relax and explore their inner self. Or, you may frequently find a peaceful place to sit back and continue your journey, but you feel stuck.

In both cases, Traci can guide the process and help you excavate deeper with insightful questions and suggestions. She can also serve as a coach who helps with specific issues. For example, you may want to improve your self-esteem, identify your aptitudes, and set goals.

Traci can challenge you when you're stuck, encourage you when you hit a roadblock, and keep you motivated to improve your life.

Life transitions

Counseling goes a long way toward helping you navigate the emotional challenges of negative life transitions like losing a job or separating from your partner. But even when your life transition is positive, you may want therapy because the change can be difficult and stressful.

Traci frequently works with LBGTQ people throughout their life transitions. She provides advocacy, therapy, and guidance for the many challenges you face, whether you need support for coming out, have relationship problems, or deal with discrimination and harassment.

Whether you want to delve into self-discovery or need support through a life transition, call Tranquil Spaces Counseling or book an in-person or telemedicine appointment online today.
