Today we’re welcoming Katie Rossler to the show. Katie is a licensed professional counselor from the United States living in Munich, Germany. She has over 10 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families on improving their relationships and enjoyment of life. After four years of being a stay at home mom, she created the program, From Stay at Home Mom to Chief Household Officer®, which teaches and empowers moms to run their households like entrepreneurs do a business. Katie has two girls, 4 and 2, and loves to be outside with her family. She is a lover of sushi, yoga, the beach, and laughing.

Today we’re going to talk about a few different aspects of adjusting to a big life change, such as a cross-country or even an international move. What we talk about here would apply to any big life transition though, whether it’s moving or having a new baby or starting a new job or dealing with a family illness. Big life transitions really do have a way of making us feel disoriented and uncertain, like the world is shifting beneath our feet. We usually have a whole new list of logistics to handle. But in times of change, we also have to re-negotiate roles with our partner, help our kids manage their big emotions, and figure out how to take care of ourselves while we’re dealing with all kinds of unpredictability. I’m really excited to chat with Katie to hear more about her experience, and to get her professional advice to help us manage these types of big changes in our lives as successfully as possible.
