Divorce Counseling

 

 

Has Your Marriage Reached The End Of Its Rope?

Statistically speaking, about half of married men will get a divorce. Several factors can lead to the dissolution of a marriage, but the process nevertheless comes with many questions and not many answers. If any of the following apply to you, you might benefit from divorce counseling through Therapy 4Men:

  • Are you currently going through a divorce or considering getting one?
  • Is the process making you feel isolated, frustrated, and out of control?
  • Or have you recently gone through a divorce and are looking for support as you rebuild your life?

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed

This is a significant transition, so you may be looking for guidance on adjusting in a manageable way that lessens the emotional burden on you and your kids (if you have any).

Though you might be holding onto some residual anger toward your ex, you probably feel invested in figuring out how to let go of the negativity and move on with your life.

Not to mention, you may have noticed an uptick in mental health symptoms, including anxiety, hopelessness, social withdrawal, and substance use.

Identify Actionable Solutions

Therapy offers you a way to proceed with the divorce process as peacefully and efficiently as possible. By learning strategies for managing stress and identifying actionable solutions for the financial, logistical, and relational obstacles on the horizon, divorce counseling can help you chart a new path forward.

You are not alone

We all know about the dreaded “half-of-marriages-end-in-divorce” statistic. Despite entering our marriages with every intention to beat the odds, however, the simple truth is that many marriages don’t work out.

Divorce is not “wrong” or anything to be ashamed of. Still, we often have to contend with social stigmas and complicated relationship dynamics with our exes, as well as our kids, other family members, and friends we once shared with our partners. Unfortunately, as men, we don’t always have the best avenues for emotional support, and we might tell ourselves that we have to “man up” and get through these obstacles on our own.

Nonjudgmental and Confidential

But counseling offers a safe, nonjudgmental, and confidential atmosphere where you can make decisions about your divorce and what you want your life to look like following it. Working together, we will establish new building blocks for the future and get to work on construction.

FAQs about Divorce Counseling

++ I DON’T HAVE THE TIME AND MONEY TO INVEST IN GETTING SUPPORT FOR MY DIVORCE

I encourage you to think about the long-term price of not seeking support as you go through your divorce, including the price of your self-assurance. The majority of my clients complete treatment feeling more in control of their lives and end up benefitting in the long-term from increased clarity about their path forward, increased self-confidence, and optimism.

Keep in mind that if time constraints are an issue, I offer flexible online sessions throughout the day to accommodate your schedule.

++ HOW WILL TALKING TO SOMEONE ACTUALLY CHANGE THE FACTS OF MY SITUATION?

Have you ever heard the expression “A problem shared is a problem halved”? Therapy can offer a new perspective on and understanding of yourself and the problems you’re facing. Fully disclosing your burdens in a supportive space and being truly heard can help you free up mental and emotional energy to move forward on finding solutions to your problems. Getting professional support during your divorce can help reduce your stress, help you make better decisions for you and your family and offer clarity in other aspects of your life.

++ I AM WORRIED ABOUT LOSING CONTROL OF MY EMOTIONS AROUND A STRANGER AND LOOKING FOOLISH OR WEAK.

I myself shared these concerns when I began therapy. I was hesitant in opening up to someone I didn’t know, but I am so glad I did. Therapy helped me to confront my problems and make progress in my life.

True strength lies in acknowledging and confronting the parts of yourself that are holding you back so that you can start the process of becoming the best version of yourself. I am a nonjudgmental and unbiased professional who aims to provide a safe space in which my clients can feel supported and receive objective feedback about the challenges they face.
