Starting Divorce counseling

What is Divorce counseling?

Thriveworks divorce counseling in Bethesda, MD can help couples understand if they want to divorce or help them move forward post-divorce. Either way, it helps them navigate conflicts and/or tough conversations that pertain to their relationship and individual selves.

How does Divorce counseling work?

Divorce counseling at Thriveworks is tailored to each couple and the individuals that make up that couple. It works by offering…

  • Tools to work through conflicts and better manage negative feelings
  • Guidance in making the right decision if you're still in the process of considering divorce
  • Help with different stages of the divorce and separation process
  • A better understanding of what went wrong in the relationship
  • A third party perpsective that ensures both parties are heard

Is Divorce counseling conducted in person or online?

Divorce counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Divorce counseling last?

The amount of divorce counseling sessions will vary from one person to the next, depending on their specific needs. However, it typically lasts for several weeks or months.

Need more help deciding?

If you and your spouse have marital issues on your hand, the first step might be to work with a marriage counselor. Sometimes, though, couples aren’t able to work through their differences and they decide that they are better off apart, even with the help of a marriage counselor. If you and your spouse have decided that it’s time to go your separate ways, you could likely benefit from divorce counseling. The harsh reality is that regardless of whether you are on good terms or bad terms with your ex, the divorce process is difficult. You’ll be forced to confront many tough emotions, make scary decisions, and begin to imagine your life without this other person. The good news, though, is that divorce counselors specialize in helping people through this process.

“Ultimately, we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes failure, but the world is quite eager to give you a set of criteria if you let it.” –J.K. Rowling

I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. Nina Zuriff is such a good fit for me. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate. She has really helped me cope with this very hard time I am currently experiencing and makes herself reachable should an emergency arise. I am very happy I selected Nina. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
