Divorce

Although common in the U.S. (50% of marriages end in divorce), a decision to end a marriage can be upsetting and filled with a number of opposing emotions. Each separation is unique and can be a heavy, emotional process for the family involved. Before, during and after a divorce, you might experience a myriad of feelings, including loss, anger, sadness, rejection, shock, regret, doubt, guilt, bitterness, or fear. In addition to helping to process these emotions, therapists that specialize in divorce are often well versed in the logistical issues that come up and can help guide individuals through questions such as living arrangements, finances, and more. Children involved in divorce also often have trouble coping. Seeing a qualified professional therapist during this time can help them, and you, to manage in healthy ways.

While we have three kinds of divorces, Litigated, Mediated and Collaborative, I am trained and certified in Mediated and Collaborative. Both kinds of divorces work with the family in attempting to reach a compromised solution to a difficult relationship. We always must remember that when children are involved, the parents can never walk away, they will always have connections.

If you’re struggling in your relationship and worry that it's over take heart. It’s normal that relationships change over time. It’s also normal to want the relationship you once had were you looked forward to being together and had a loving and trusting relationship. Relationships don’t come with “how to” manuals especially when you have been together for years. Don't lose hope. There are things you can do.

Going through a divorce or the aftermath of one can be devastating on so many levels. I work with individuals to help recover and come out stronger and healthier. I also provide co-parenting counseling for parents looking to keep their relationships healthy and doable for the children. Learning how to set boundaries and be respectful can be challenging at first but counseling can help ensure everyone is heard and honored in this new family dynamic.
