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.

When one goes through a divorce, one is sometimes angry and sad, probably extremely worried about the kids and therefore the family's future. What you feel next is a mixture of stress, anxiety and depression. I will help you maneuver the several stages that sometimes come about from divorce: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Then find rational perspective with a "new" role, new communication strategies in the new role of co-parenting in relearning the new identity.

— Monica Pina, Licensed Professional Counselor in Brownsville, TX

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.

In working with an empathetic therapist, step by step , day by day you’ll get to know yourself again, and rebuild a new life . . .
