Moving from ‘we’ to ‘me’ presents its share of emotions. Think of it as a roller coaster filled of mixed emotions. Some days are better than others – though in the beginning, it often feels like every day is a bad day. I get it! I have been divorced and truly understand what it means to navigate through this time in your life – feeling and believing its never going to get better. I also know that despite who initiated the divorce, its one of the most difficult and challenging life transitions that you will ever experience.
But, despite all the upheaval that divorce brings, there is – eventually – the silver lining and you will end up on the other side of your divorce. From a divorce counseling perspective, I help men and women manage all the ups and downs and help you work through the stages of divorce we all experience – though in varying degrees and in different ways.
Although I am trained Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), an active, collaborative and skills-based modality called Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), an approach that will help you focus on your preferred future by setting small, achievable goals, each person is different. I meet each person where they are. I find value and importance in that. Every person is different. Every story is different.
We discuss your current situation, where you are in the divorce process, what you hope to achieve, and what is preventing you from getting there. We focus on instilling hope for your future as you write a new chapter in your life and ways to rediscover yourself post divorce.
With Solution Focused Therapy uses the Miracle Question which gets you moving from a problem focused approach to a future and solution focused approach. It helps you visualize what you want for your future and what you would like that to look like.
Still not sure? I offer a free 20 minute consult, which I call a “meet and greet” where we will have the opportunity to meet face to face. You will be able to share a little bit about what your current situation is and how you hope I would be able to help you. Importance is placed on ensuring its a good fit for both of us.
