Divorce Counseling in Bensalem, PA—Counselors and Therapists

Divorce Counseling in Bensalem, PA—Counselors and Therapists

When two people vow to spend forever together—through the good and bad, in sickness and in health—they don’t imagine that their story will end in divorce. But the difficult reality is that sometimes marriage does end in divorce; in fact, 39% of spouses decide to separate. And for a variety of reasons: lack of intimacy, unmet expectations, financial strain, different priorities, and opposing visions for their future together. Whatever the reason, uncoupling can be difficult as the two individuals separate and can cause one to feel completely out of touch with their identity, wondering, “What now?” or “What’s next?”

“Divorce isn’t such a tragedy. A tragedy’s staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.” –Jennifer Weiner

Divorce counselors specialize in helping people to answer these and other unnerving questions. If you are going through a divorce and you’re wondering what’s next or have other important questions to explore in the wake of your separation, a divorce counselor can prove valuable. Bring these difficult questions to a divorce counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Bensalem.

How Can Counseling Help Me Through My Divorce?

In most instances, divorce isn’t pretty. It’s filled with conflict, tears, resistance, denial, or hatred, followed by another difficult path of adjusting to a new norm. That said, in summary, someone might seek divorce counseling to face these painful emotions. Working with a divorce counselor, one can learn to work through…

  • Lonely feelings
  • Contempt toward their ex-spouse
  • Uncertainty about the future
  • Challenges in co-parenting
  • Identity crisis
  • Depression or anxiety

This list outlines only a few challenges that can come with divorce. Whatever the obstacle is, a divorce counselor at Thriveworks Bensalem can help you to understand, address, and overcome the hurdle(s) before you. These experts understand just how taxing a divorce can be, and they are devoted to helping you live a happy, healthy life going forward.

What Does Divorce Recovery Look Like?

As with most challenges, there is no one way to recover from divorce. This process heavily depends on the cause(s) of divorce and the effects of the divorce on the individual. Some important differences include:

  • Whether the separation was mutual or not
  • If the individual understands the reason for separation or they are left bewildered
  • Whether the individual experiences intense emotional pain as a result or not
  • If the individual receives closure or if they are left wondering “why” or “what if”
  • Whether the divorce was a sudden or gradual process

If you decide to work with a divorce counselor at Thriveworks Bensalem, your counselor will first understand the details of your divorce (such as those listed above) and then develop a process for recovering properly based on your needs. Their expertise, training, and experience will help them do so. Remember: Your divorce counselor’s goal is to help you recover and heal from your divorce. They will guide you toward a life of happiness again.

Over 35 years ive known frank

★★★★★
First met frank in the mid 80's as he came to Phoenix Arizona as a certified surgical technologist & worked with him there in a level 1 trauma center. It wasn't much after his stay in Phoenix he returned to Philadelphia where he then became Philadelphia fire fighter, and his effort of doing that excelled to peaking position as Captain for the PFD. As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress . But as a friend to see what he has done and become to his educate himself to helping people in the community is second to none. But more than anything he's a great person and to have him as my friend all these years seen what he's done to keep helping people in the private sector, bravo frank !

Talk Therapy that helps

I found Frank during a tough time in my life. I was dealing with some pretty heavy issues related to family and career and suffering from depression and severe anxiety. Frank listened and had a way of making me see things in a different (more positive) light. It's clear he cares deeply about others and genuinely wants to lessen their suffering. I highly recommend Frank as a counselor. His empathy and skills made him more than qualified to assist in my journey to wellness. Frank: thank you for all that you do. You have made my life less dark, and for that I am grateful.

Frank Yaeger

★★★★★
I first worked with Frank as a client. He was my personal trainer. He not only expanded my understanding and knowledge of physical health, but also gave me the confidence I need to far exceed my initial goals. As the role of a licensed professional counselor (LPC) I had invited Frank to be part of a three-person panel which included two Ph. D’s speaking on the topic of estrangement. The event went extremely well, and Frank’s contributions were very insightful, informative, and offered tangible methods to address estranged love ones. I highly recommend Frank as a therapist. He will provide unwavering empathy, ‘meet you where you are’ and provide the necessary interventions and compassion to have breakthroughs along your therapeutic journey

Frank is always striving to be a better version of himself. He has a level of passion for life and learning that I've rarely seen in others. He works on a holistic approach to life from every angle; whether for himself or with suggestions to others.
