1:1 Therapy for Divorce
You may feel like your head is spinning as your life as you knew it is now looking very different. You may have moved homes, changed communities, lost or gained friends or family members to name just a few of the changes divorce can bring.
Depending upon where you are in the divorce process; you may have different needs at different times. If you are divorcing with children, sometimes called a complex divorce then you are managing additional tasks for your children along with your divorce. Many issues and terms arise from divorce that you may not even be familiar with until they happen to you:

Why Should You Consider Individual Therapy for Divorce?
When a marriage ends, it typically leaves one or both partners wondering, “what happened?” As a major life transition, divorce is often traumatic and overall mentally, physically, and emotionally draining.
Individual therapy offers individuals powerful coping skills that can help them navigate their own overwhelming thoughts and feelings. Therapy offers a safe space to explore and share your feelings so you can make sense of them yourself. It’s a way for people to have a healthier outlook on their divorce and become empowered during a very difficult time. There are several stages of divorce according to the Bohannan model: legal, emotional, economic, co-parental, community, and psychic. These stages do not start and stop or sequence neatly; often they are simultaneously occurring which can be exhaustive.
Individual therapy can be incredibly helpful for those people experiencing depression, anxiety, adjustment difficulties, or who view the divorce as a personal failure. This type of therapy can help you discover your own needs and have a better understanding of who you are. I specialize in divorce spectrum issues.
