Do any of the following resonate with you? Resentment is eating away at your joy in life. You are avoiding things. You feel lonely, even when you are with others. You appear to have it all together, but inside you feel raw. Feeling stuck at work, unhappy in relationships, preoccupied, pressured to perform. Everyone keeps talking about 'boundaries' but you're not sure how to create them without feeling guilty. You are an intelligent, caring, and determined person. You want to grow and improve but you're slipping into old patterns. You want to feel present in the moment instead of thinking about what's next.

We spend our lives in relationships. People in our families, co-workers, friends, partners, significant others, and spouses are part of life. Those relationships are valuable and may provide happiness and satisfaction. But relationships can become difficult and strained and sometimes cause us personal stress and frustration. Sometimes we might wonder if a relationship is really good for us or not. Working with clients on improving their relationships is what most clients ask me to help them with.

Divorce Therapists

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 behavioral, 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 behavioral 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.
