Divorce and Other Life Transitions
Are you considering divorce or separation? Are you struggling to come to terms with a recent divorce? Has your divorce or separation left you feeling angry or despondent?
Just as marriage is one of life’s most significant experiences, so is divorce. While recovering from divorce can be difficult, it’s not impossible. Therapy can help you cope with the emotional and mental toll that often comes with the end of a marriage. When you are able to find healing and move forward from the end of a relationship, you may find that you feel more hope and that the divorce was in your best interest for the future. Therapy can also be a resource to help you make a decision about whether divorce is the right step for you if you are facing challenges in your marriage.
If you find yourself feeling any of the following:
- Doubt about whether you are happy or want to stay in your marriage.
- Unresolved hostility or resentment towards your former spouse
- Upset about your partner’s infidelity, addiction or other destructive behaviors
- Feeling that your former partner didn’t give your marriage a chance
- Loneliness, or worry that you won’t find love again
- Guilt about things you did or didn’t do in your marriage
- Grief or depression about the dissolution of your marriage
- Stress or anxiety about life changes associated with divorce
… then therapy can help.
Working one-on-one with a therapist, you can learn to accept and address feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, guilt or depression. Your therapist can help you find clarity about your life path, and positive outlets to deal with your emotions. If you leave these feelings unresolved, they can come out later in life and affect you in unexpected and negative ways. Therapy can help you process these emotions in a healthy way so that you can move past this moment of pain and work to move forward in your life in positive ways.
Divorce recovery therapy can give you the power to reclaim your life by helping you grieve the loss of your marriage and partner, so you can be healed and restored. Together, we can figure out what contributed to the breakdown of your marriage and discuss what you can do to improve your relationships going forward.
It’s painful to go through a divorce, but a path to healing and hope is possible. While divorce is the end of one chapter, it’s also the start of a brand new one. I am passionate about helping clients work through this transition, as well as others, in their lives. I am passionate about helping individuals make empowered decisions about their next steps of life, so that you can confidently move in a direction that will bring you more peace, happiness and fulfillment. Transitions can be emotionally challenging, but ultimately can bring positive change.
If you’re going through a divorce or other major life transition, you don’t have to go through it alone.
