PRE | POST DIVORCE SUPPORT

Pre-Marital| Marital

Separation can be a very traumatic event in a woman’s life. Whether the marriage was six months or sixty years, pain is the outcome. Even when divorce is the healthiest choice for a bright future, grief remains. Grieving a marriage is a loss, “like a death that someone chooses” as a client once said. Codependency is oftentimes a symptom of a toxic relationship. Whether recently separated or divorced for a decade, counseling can help pick up the pieces after the breakdown of a marriage.

We work with separated couples, women and their children and support women as they transition into uncharted territory. Therapy for divorce support is more than just sitting in grief with someone, though many times a priveledged necessity, it is teaching skills of emotional and mental self-reliance for uncharted territory.
