Whether you are contemplating separation or divorce, or have made the difficult decision to end your marriage, counseling can help you identify and evaluate your emotions. The following services are available:
Scared and Confused:
Individual Counseling will help you to understand your feelings about your marriage and to make personal changes based on taking responsibility for your emotions, your actions and your life. Counseling is offered to one spouse or both separately.
Couples Counseling will help you understand how you interact with each other and why. It can instill hope that work can be done to repair your relationship if that is your goal. It can instill hope that while you may not remain married, you can maintain a relationship so that you are free of guilt and shame. Counseling will help you develop positive co parenting behaviors so that your children do not suffer the consequences of your divorce.
Individual Counseling will help you separate your daily life from the legal process of divorce. While going through your divorce, it is easy to lose yourself in the legal process, anger, fear and lonliness. We will work together to ensure that you are taking care of yourself, your relationships, and your children so that after the legal process is over, you are whole and happy again.
Couples Counseling during a divorce may seem counter intuitive (ie crazy). We will work together to enable you to forgive each other and to be able to co parent without blame, anger or fear. You once loved each other and planned to spend your lives together. You have decided that is no longer possible. Let’s work together so that you can change your relationship into something positive rather than resentful or hateful.
Individual Counseling after divorce may occur immediately after when you are dealing with many emotions and feel lost, isolated and less than your incredible self. It may include parenting issues, finances, going back to work, communication skills with your ex, among other things. Counseling is beneficial years later as you continue to deal with issues that were not resolved earlier. You may be feeling stuck, unable to trust and be fearful of being hurt again. We can work together to get unstuck and being to live your incredible life.
Co-Parenting is hard. Parenting is hard when you are married and living in the same house. It’s super hard when you are divorced and living separately. I can help you separate your feelings about each other from your love for your children. Doing this will enable to co-parent in a respectful, kind manner so that your kids benefit.
