Loss of loved ones, separation, divorce, and aging are among life's changes that leave us feeling vulnerable and scared.
If you feel lost, stuck, or like your world is crumbling around you, you are not alone. Most people experience this when facing significant life changes. An aching feeling and a deep sadness accompany lost hopes and dreams. Times like this call into question, "Who am I?" Your identity feels like it has been swallowed up by the days and years spent tending to life's demands. This makes trying to figure out your next steps both overwhelming and terrifying. You want to feel on solid ground again and for your life to have purpose, meaning, and genuine connections to others.

Are you tired of strained relationships? Do you find yourself fighting about the same things repeatedly, constantly needing reassurance from others, and distancing yourself from loved ones to cope emotionally? Is this causing feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, disconnection from yourself and others as a result? Are you struggling with overthinking and negative self-talk, leading to a breakdown in communication? As a therapist specializing in individual and couples' support, I can help you and your partner understand that these behaviours are commonly used coping mechanisms that are rooted in past emotional wounds.

Life can be overwhelming, leaving you feeling helpless and alone. It is not easy to find your way forward. Recreating yourself in a way that embraces who you are and where you've been, to empower you to move towards a life you may envision, is not simple but it can be done. My goal is to help you find this path. Whether faced with a lifetime of challenges, or impacted by a single traumatic event, I bring empathy, warmth, compassion and understanding to the relationship. From that place of safety, I will support you to find the road to acceptance, healing, and peace of mind.

People see you as the one who has it all together, but deep down you feel like something is missing, you have feelings of shame and thoughts like "I'm not good enough". You're tired, over-worked, overwhelmed and anxious much of the time. Putting up this facade is taking a toll on your emotional health. Constantly striving to do it all is exhausting and not fulfilling for you.

Twin Pines Psychotherapy specializes in counselling for individuals and families in transition, blended/step-families, and parents. Whether losses, moves, separation/divorce, blending a family, or new mental health or developmental diagnoses – it’s during these times that we can feel most lonely and lost. Life’s journey is rarely a straight path, and we often find ourselves in places we never imagined. Grief and hardship are part of life, and many of us are without a ‘village’ and the support we need to weather these storms and changes.

If you're feeling disconnected, distracted, and detached from your life, it may be time to look at why. Why can't I connect, why am I not able to just "get over" my past, or why does it all feel so meaningless? Maybe there are other questions, like “what am I doing with my life” or “who do I want to be?”. It’s okay to take time that's just for you, to look at your life and see both the big picture and explore the often overlooked details. With the right support, you can feel more present, connected, and in control of your life.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
