Couples therapy and marriage counseling are designed to help couples work through the problems in their relationship. The reality, though, is that sometimes couples therapy or marriage counseling leads people to the decision that it’s time to separate. Or, sometimes two people decide on their own that their relationship isn’t viable and they are better off not together. In these instances, divorce counseling can prove incredibly valuable during any stage of the divorce process.
“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of strength. However, there are time when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” –Ann Landers
Divorce counselors are trained to help couples move through the divorce process the best that they can. In other words, they help people make important decisions, process their emotions, develop effective communication, build a cordial relationship post-divorce, and move forward with the right tools to heal and find happiness again.

What Can I Expect from the Divorce Process? Can Divorce Counseling Help?
Divorce typically means separating from someone who you’ve grown close to and spent a lot of time with. Naturally, this means that the divorce process will come with many emotions that we’d rather not experience. Don’t worry, a divorce counselor can help you process and work through the following:
- Sadness and anger: It is likely to feel sad as well as mad during the divorce process. You might simply feel sad or angry about the end of your marriage or you might have resentment toward your ex. In any case, a divorce counselor can help you process and communicate these emotions as needed.
- Regret: Many people experience regret at some point during the divorce process. They look back on their marriage and think, “If only we had done this,” or, “That was wrong of me, I shouldn’t have done that.” A divorce counselor can help you work through this regret and guilt.
- Acceptance: Some people accept the reality of their situation early on, while others accept their divorce much later. In either case, one of our counselors will offer you the guidance and support that you need to accept the end of your marriage and move forward toward greater happiness.
