When a couple has reached a point where they decide to separate, it often invites many big emotions. Basic practical and logistical things become a challenge to negotiate. Uncoupling or divorce counseling can be used as a space to figure out the "now what" part of a relationship. It is often short in duration and done with both parties. Some issues that may be addressed include communicating with children, effective co-parenting, and redefining the relationship between two parties. It is a way to work through the process of separation in a mutually respectful and safe way that supports the family in redefining their roles, particularly with children.
Divorce may also exacerbate an existing mental health issue such as depression or anxiety and invite feelings of guilt, shame, or doubt. Individual therapy could address these emotions and help someone process through the grief and anger that often accompanies such a big life change. It is a way to make sense of one's marriage and gain perspective on the relationship while holding a space to move forward and create something different in one's life.
When you call to make your initial appointment, you will be given directions to create a patient portal. You can fill out and submit your intake paperwork through your own secure portal and it will be delivered to your therapist electronically in time for your intake appointment. Though copies of our forms are provided for your convenience, you do not need to print out the forms available on this website as you will be able to sign them electronically when you arrive for your session.
