Who Should Consider Divorce Therapy?

The decision to divorce is difficult and painful, and it’s easy to understand why so many people find themselves focused on the negative parts of divorce – it’s the loss of a meaningful relationship, it’s the end of a chapter, and it leaves you with a broken heart. Therapy can help people who are getting a divorce to start seeing the healing and hopeful parts of this transition – it’s an opportunity to find and develop new relationships-most importantly with yourself, it’s the start of a new chapter, and it’s a chance to heal your broken heart.
As your marriage is ending, therapy can help you navigate the process of uncoupling with confidence, optimism, and empowerment. If you can relate to any of the following descriptions of getting a divorce, it may be time to consider divorce therapy:

Should children, adolescents, or teens with divorcing parents go to therapy?

Young people may really struggle when their parents are getting divorced or separating. As a parent, you want to support and comfort your child through this transition, but you’re struggling too. Therapy gives children and teens a safe space and an outlet to work through some of the things they’re experiencing with a neutral confidant. It also removes some of the stress from your shoulders, so you can work through your own difficulties with the transition. Managing your children’s feelings while healing your heart-break is too much for many people. Working with a therapist allows you to have a team approach to making sure your child feels safe and loved during this transition.

What can I expect during therapy?

Many people choose to seek out divorce therapy on their own to process the painful emotions and start healing their broken hearts. Others schedule relationship therapy sessions to have a safe space to talk through the divorce process with their partner. Whatever your needs or goals, a therapist can work with you and/or your partner to navigate this difficult time. We can continually adjust our therapy plan as your needs and goals change. We’re here to support you and offer a safe and stable environment to work through everything that comes up as you go through a divorce.
