Divorce Recovery Counseling For Men, Women and Children

Surprised by the impact of your separation or divorce? The break-up of a relationship often has a devastating effect on our lives and our emotions. Even those who choose to end the relationship often find themselves in a confusing time of anger, grief and doubt. Nature doesn’t give us much leeway here. We are a pair- bonding species and we do not break apart easily or well. For many people this is the most traumatic experience of their lives and they are truly surprised by the intensity and longevity of painful emotions.

We live in a “hurry up” culture where society expects us to sweep our wounds under the carpet and “get on with it.” This can make healing from divorce even more difficult as we feel guilty that we are still suffering and having trouble moving forward. Expectations of a quick recovery from divorce are often unrealistic. If we truly loved, if we invested years of our life, recovering from separation is neither quick nor easy. Neither should it be interminable. We all know someone who was never able to move forward, who is still stuck re-living and suffering over the past.

Divorce counseling can help you put your experience in perspective and assist you in coping with the worst of the grief, anger, emptiness or fear. If you have been “stuck” for a long time, I can help you to move forward. How do we learn from our losses and use that experience to enrich our life with purpose and direction? If you have gotten lost in the whirlwind that is often a part of separating, I urge you to call  561.212.5408 to set up an appointment, or click contact me  if you prefer email.

    Great article. My marriage is probably not going to last much longer. We’ve only been married a couple of years, and have no children. My wife wants to separate temporarily and work toward getting back together.

    How do I handle, allowing my 13 year old son visit his father, who now lives with the woman who he an affair with while we were married?

    • Let your son make his own relationship with his father. You can’t let your unhappiness with his Dad’s behavior influence him; that puts him in the middle unfairly. Your anger at Dad is between you and Dad only. You are no longer married to Dad so he can be with whomever he wishes. Try not to allow your resentment of this woman color how your son feels about her. She may end up being an enduring and important person in his life.

    Read some posts on your blog, this one I found very true. I’m dealing with a terrible heartbreak-long term relationship-pretty sure I’m depressed & may seek counseling. It does help to have good friends/family to talk to when feeling down but often I’m finding they are too close to the situation. They have their own opinions. Maybe better to speak to a professional who is not biased in any way.

    Thanks for the great advice. I truly appreciate being able to find professional advice online.
