Sometimes in life, we can feel stuck and have a hard time seeing our way forward. A change in your life can leave you feeling hopeless, empty, confused, or lost. Ending a relationship, loosing a loved one, or finding yourself as a caregiver may throw you on a path that you didn’t expect and have a hard time navigating. Right now, you can't see your way forward, but you want to find a way through the weeds so you don't feel so bogged down and overwhelmed.

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.

Experiences such as divorce , a layoff, the death of a loved one, emigration or the children moving house, bring with them changes that are difficult to assimilate and face. These situations mark people's lives, making them feel misunderstood, frustrated, sad or depressed, even making them question the meaning of life. But despite this, they want to find answers to accept reality and move on. I have had some of these experiences and now I am dedicated to supporting people to overcome them. I offer you to schedule your first appointment only for 90$ only in Spanish. Send me an email or send me a text.

Are you or your child struggling? Are you concerned about handling your emotions? Does your child have difficulty regulating their emotions, controlling anger, or having social difficulties? Perhaps you are worried about how your child is coping with recent changes in the family, such as separation or divorce ? You don’t have to be alone! Parenting is the most invested relationship one can partake in. There are many challenges involved in guiding little people towards becoming adults and life can force families to face events that impact children's ability to function successfully within their daily environments.

I also work with challenges in the areas of loss, separation, divorce , step-parenting, co-parenting, adoption, fostering, and perinatal health.
Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. If you or your loved one (child, adolescent, or partner) seems to be stuck in repeating behaviours, or patterns that are stretching your patience and energy reserves, you've come to the right place. I'm here to help shoulder some of the emotional weight you've been carrying, and to let you know there is hope, tangible tools and strategies, and positive change on the other side of bravely stepping into this process.

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.
