Despite what some people tout, divorce is hard no matter how you look at it. It most often involves a roller coaster of emotions that can be confusing and heartbreaking. Divorce is sometimes inevitable and might serve as the best option for healthy living, especially in the case of abuse or violence. However, that does not mean it will be easy to deal with. Having a licensed professional to help guide you and your partner (and family) through this process can help avoid some of the most destructive paths that sometimes ensnare couples.

I've seen a dramatic change in my life since beginning my treatment at Integrated Counseling, and I will be forever grateful for my time there.
The Benefits of Divorce Counseling
The intent of divorce counseling is to help the couple navigate through many of the difficult decisions and the stress of divorce. This often includes helping a child or children maintain a sense of safety and security and provide additional support and resources that might be needed. It can also provide the mediation necessary to avoid expensive legal costs/proceedings.
Divorce counseling can be helpful generally but is especially helpful for people whose mental or emotional health is suffering as a result of the divorce. Depression, thoughts of harming self or others, difficulty at work or in other areas of life, inability to care for yourself/children are indicators you need to seek help. Some other warning signs include but are not limited to:
- Difficulty sleeping
- A loss of appetite
- Withdrawing from loved ones and friends
- Increased Anxiety
- Inability to make decisions
- Rapid weight loss or gain
- A sense of unworthiness
- Extreme sadness
- Feelings of guilt
