Starting Divorce counseling

What is Divorce counseling?

Thriveworks divorce counseling in Johnson City, TN 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?

Perhaps this scenario sounds familiar: The first few years of marriage were just wonderful, but somewhere along the way, it all started to unravel. Life just didn’t make sense together anymore—you both were being pulled in different directions by your dreams. And knew it best to continue on apart. It helped that you agreed to separate, but the heartbreak was still there. And the uncertainty of what was next still hung in the balance, leaving you unsure, nervous, and plain unhappy.

Divorce can take an emotional, mental, and physical toll on an individual, no matter the circumstances or events that led to the separation. In any case, both individuals need all of the support they can get. Fortunately, a counselor or therapist at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN can assist. If you’re going through the painful process of divorce, consider working with one of our providers.

In addition to providing you with the support you need, they’ll work to ensure the separation process goes as smoothly as possible to help you understand and manage all of the emotions you’re experiencing, and figure out what’s next. If you’d like to work with a counselor at Thriveworks, or hear more about our services, reach out to us by phone, or go online to book your first session.

Why Did My Marriage Fall Apart?

In today’s world, marriage often ends in divorce. That being said, nobody expects that their marriage will end in divorce. But then something happens to turn the relationship on its side and the couple decides they’re better off apart—and that’s okay. Here are some common blunders that ultimately lead to divorce:

  • Lack of communication
  • Infidelity
  • Financial instability
  • Disagreements about money
  • Marrying too soon/young
  • Physical, emotional, and mental abuse
  • Substance abuse and addiction

There are, of course, additional elements that can contribute to a couple’s decision to separate. In any case, however, the divorce can have some pretty tough ramifications on all parties involved. Troubling effects include:

  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Restlessness
  • Depressive thoughts and feelings
  • Loneliness

These potential side effects speak to the importance of seeing a mental health professional if you’re going through the painful process of divorce. Your therapist or counselor at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN can help you to manage these difficult feelings and feel hopeful about your life again.

How Can a Thriveworks Divorce Counselor Help Me?

While counselors and therapists often use similar techniques to help their patients, the therapeutic process can take many different forms. For example, with divorce counseling, you may choose to work with a counselor individually or a couples counselor with the other party, depending on your therapy goals:

  • Individual: You can choose to work with a counselor for your individual needs regarding the divorce. If this is the route you take, your counselor will help you work through your emotions, your stress, and your pain. They will also put you on a clearer path toward a bright future without your partner.
  • Couples: If you two choose to see a counselor together, a couples counselor will help you through the entirety of the process, from sorting out living arrangements and financial obligations to getting the closure you need from each other (if any). They can function as a mediator as well as a coach.

Your counselor’s goal is to provide you with support during this difficult time, as well as the tools you need to move forward happily and healthily. If this sounds like someone you want to work with, know that help is just around the corner at Thriveworks Johnson City.

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
