Divorce Recovery in Alpharetta
Whether you are considering divorce or have already made this difficult decision, you don’t have
to take the next steps alone. The decision to divorce or separate involves a lot of changes and
big decisions so it is helpful to have someone neutral to walk with you through each stage of this
process. Ending a marriage marks the start of a new chapter, and with this will come conflicting
feelings. A range of emotions will be felt such as relief, anger, grief, confusion, and added
stress. It is important to adequately grieve the loss of this relationship in order to begin a new
healthy relationship in the future. Licensed counselors can help guide you through the healing process.
Working out custody agreements and finding ways to successfully coparent can be a challenge. Maintaining healthy boundaries and effective communication are important tools that
can help to make this process easier for everyone, especially the children involved. When
emotions are heightened, it can be difficult to use these skills in healthy ways. Seeking therapy
can help you to cement your boundaries and goals for the changing relationships, as well as
navigate how to implement these changes.
Children of divorce
Divorce and separation will affect each family member and child differently depending on age,
developmental level, and personality. It can sometimes be difficult for children to talk to parents
directly about their concerns due to confusion about what divorce means for them. It is critical to
provide a safe and non judgemental environment for children to gain knowledge about what is
happening and continue to have a sense of security despite the changes. Therapists at
Thriveworks Alpharetta are trained in working with children and teens of all developmental
stages to help meet your family’s needs and provide this safe, caring environment.
Divorce usually accompanies various other changes in addition to the relationship shifts. Some
people will experience a move, job change, or custody sharing. Having support through these
changes is essential to making transitions as smooth as possible. A counselor can help you
decide what direction you want to go next in order to start living your best life.
