Therapy For Divorce


When we say the words, “I do,” we never imagine that one day those words will turn into “It’s over.” But the statistics point to the fact that many marriages do not make it. In fact, the CDC reports that 42% of marriages have a high probability of ending in divorce.


Why Should You Consider Therapy for Divorce?

When a marriage ends, it typically leaves one or both partners wondering, “what happened?” As a major life transition, divorce can be traumatic and mentally, physically, and emotionally draining.

Therapy offers individuals and couples powerful coping skills that can help them navigate their overwhelming thoughts and feelings. It provides a safe space to explore and share your feelings so you can make sense of them yourself. It’s a way for people to have a healthier outlook on their divorce and become empowered during this very difficult time.


Different Therapy Modalities for Divorce

Every situation is unique and will require the right type of therapy.


Individual Therapy

Individual therapy can be incredibly helpful for those people experiencing depression or anxiety, or who view the divorce as a personal failure. This type of therapy will help you discover your own needs and gain a better understanding of who you are.


Couples Therapy

Divorce is not easy. But with the proper guidance, the lines of communication can stay open, and the separation can remain constructive and amicable. A therapist can also help you both navigate hard decisions such as financial obligations and co-parenting.


Family Therapy

Children are, of course, deeply affected by a divorce, and the parents are often too consumed with their own emotions to offer proper guidance. Family therapy can help the entire family deal with the feelings of loss and grief.


Mediation

Settling a divorce in court can be costly and exhausting. Many couples choose to mediate their own divorce through the help of a trained therapist. Mediation not only costs less and typically takes far less time than divorce litigation, but it may also help improve the lines of communication as you both move forward.
