A divorce is never something anyone intends on having to experience, which merely amplifies the feelings that follow such an event. Divorce is one of life’s most complicated transitionary periods, oftentimes unwanted by one of the individuals involved. Even if the divorce isn’t conflict-based and remains amicable, several aspects of life change, requiring a readjustment of what both daily life and emotional well-being mean. The multifaceted nature of removing oneself, or being removed from, such an intertwined connection with another being is oftentimes likened to grieving over a loved one that has passed. There are stages to this loss, including but not limited to sadness, denial, depression, anger, guilt, bargaining, and finally, acceptance.
Our divorce counselors act as your guide on this complicated journey, whether that involves discernment, pre-divorce, post-divorce, individual, or couples counseling. No one route towards healing during and after a divorce is the right road to take, and we keep this adaptable perspective throughout all aspects of our therapy. We encourage a safe environment to discuss the divorce process, emotional involvement, coping, and finding a mutually beneficial road towards cooperative decision making.
