Restructuring Advisory to Distressed or Ordinary PE?

I currently work at a restructuring advisory firm (FTI, A&M, etc)

I am hoping to make a career transition to maybe distressed PE or ordinary PE, but am uncertain whether such transition is common and possible.

Please let me know if you have any similar experience or knowledge about such a career path.

Any sort of advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
