Divorce Support and Recovery

The end of a marriage is one of the most stressful event, a person can experience. Even for the partner who chooses to leave, divorce is likely to bring up a range of painful and difficult emotions, possibly including grief, guilt, anger, confusion, fear, shame, anxiety, and other intense feelings. If children are involved, the stress level is likely to be even higher. People sometimes seek therapy to help them decide whether to stay in a marriage or leave. Others may seek help to make the transition from marriage to being single again. Both Divorce Support and Recovery can be addressed in individual or couple’s work.

Despite a couple’s best efforts separation and/or divorce can become what makes the most sense for all involved. I work with individuals, couples, and families who need support during this stressful and often traumatic time.
