Navigating your emotions before, during, and after a divorce is challenging. Divorce counseling can help you manage and process painful feelings like sadness, loss, and anger. It can also help improve your communication skills and allow you to cope with the practical aspects and logistics of figuring out finances, custody arrangements, and dealing with shared family and friends post-divorce.
Regardless of how amicable your relationship with your spouse is, divorce usually involves difficult feelings, conversations, and decisions. Whether you participate in divorce counseling with your spouse or by yourself, it can help you learn healthier ways to communicate and continue building a more positive relationship after your divorce is finalized. This is especially important if you have kids, as you want to minimize the negative impact a divorce has on your children.
Conflicts and concerns about finances, parenting, schedules, and other issues can be stressful and bring up a lot of strong emotions. It’s not unusual to feel sad and depressed about getting a divorce. A therapist can help you learn how to deal with your feelings and stay grounded during this time of transition.
If you’re in the early stages of considering divorce, seeing a therapist can be extremely helpful. There is no right or wrong time to seek this type of counseling. You can do it before, during, and/or after your divorce is complete.
Divorce counseling can provide tools and skills to help you get through challenging times while caring for your mental health. Contact a therapist directly to schedule an in-person or teletherapy appointment at Kayenta Therapy.
