Divorce

Although common in the U.S. (50% of marriages end in divorce), a decision to end a marriage can be upsetting and filled with a number of opposing emotions. Each separation is unique and can be a heavy, emotional process for the family involved. Before, during and after a divorce, you might experience a myriad of feelings, including loss, anger, sadness, rejection, shock, regret, doubt, guilt, bitterness, or fear. In addition to helping to process these emotions, therapists that specialize in divorce are often well versed in the logistical issues that come up and can help guide individuals through questions such as living arrangements, finances, and more. Children involved in divorce also often have trouble coping. Seeing a qualified professional therapist during this time can help them, and you, to manage in healthy ways.

While we have three kinds of divorces, Litigated, Mediated and Collaborative, I am trained and certified in Mediated and Collaborative. Both kinds of divorces work with the family in attempting to reach a compromised solution to a difficult relationship. We always must remember that when children are involved, the parents can never walk away, they will always have connections.

If you’re struggling in your relationship and worry that it's over take heart. It’s normal that relationships change over time. It’s also normal to want the relationship you once had were you looked forward to being together and had a loving and trusting relationship. Relationships don’t come with “how to” manuals especially when you have been together for years. Don't lose hope. There are things you can do.

Divorce or leaving a long term relationship can feel very scary and isolating. When I went through my own divorce several years ago , I felt like I had to learn how to live with one arm. I was experiencing anxiety, depression, and grief all at once. You don’t have to go through this alone . . . In working with an empathetic therapist, step by step , day by day you’ll get to know yourself again, and rebuild a new life . . .

— Miyuki Tomura, Psychologist in Mercer Island,

My parents divorced when I was 16. I thought I would never ever get a divorce. However, the marriage was challenging, we could not resolve conflict, communication was difficult, we both used learned behaviors we had seen in families of origin. After 26 years, I did divorce, and have found the relationship I had hoped for in healthy communication with my wife. Life is too short to live in toxic unhealthy atmospheres. All involved in this divorce, me, him, all of our children are now much happier!

— Linda Cash, Counselor in Greensboro, NC
 

Divorces are hard and emotionally messy for the adults. Processing through your own feelings in addition to supporting your children can feel overwhelming. My focus is on supporting children through the process of divorce, but I also work with parents interested in moving forward in the healthiest and most loving way possible.

— Cathy Chang Gilbert, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Issaquah, WA

I am passionate about helping people through divorce. Divorce, or the ending of an intimate relationship, is difficult enough on its own. But divorce also represents a major change in so many other areas--parenting, family, finances, friendships, spirituality. I love helping my clients navigate through the tidal wave of divorce--and seeing them come out the other side with tremendous growth and a renewed sense of hope. I also help divorced or divorcing couples learn to coparent.

— Jennifer Meyer, Licensed Professional Counselor in Fort Collins, CO
 

Divorce is a very emotional equation, especially if kids are involved. Just ask many smiling attorneys;) But when kids are involved, it is VERY important that ex-partners try and be roughly on the same page, for the sake of their kids Within this whirlwind of emotional "triggers," the discipline of governing our own emotions is often challenged. I can provide experience tested tools, to help you soothe your pain, fill the void, and hopefully "move on" with your changing life.

— Darrell "Sandy" Marsh, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA
