“I’ve been through or am about to go through a divorce or separation and the whole process has just been really hard. I feel like other people in my life expect me to feel one way, but honestly, sometimes I don’t even know how to feel. Sometimes I’m excited, but a lot of the time I feel angry or sad or scared or just confused. I’m not really sure how to be ‘me’ again.”
The challenge of the separation/divorce process and divorce recovery is one that touches so many aspects of our lives. You may be trying to figure out who you are post-divorce, co-parent with a difficult ex, or wondering how to deal with new roles like step-parenthood and blending families. Separation, divorce and remarriage come with a host of challenges that can even aggravate existing issues – e.g. your anxiety might have been under control for the most part, but going through your divorce sent it through the roof.
A big part of the challenge of divorce is that people who haven’t been through the experience often have a really difficult time relating. I offer individual therapy and group options for those who have been or are going through divorce. Individual therapy gives us the chance to directly address the specific challenges you are facing, while the group option gives you the opportunity to get support from both me and others in similar situations.
If you are interested in talking with me more, please reach out! There’s a contact form right here on this page that gets sent straight to me. Your first 30 minutes are totally free – no risk consultation – so you can find out if we might be a good fit and ask any questions you might have about how therapy can help.
Sliding Fee Scale available – please contact me for more information!
