Healing After Separation or Divorce

The end of a relationship is difficult.

Some relationships end suddenly while others grow apart over the years. Some endings are mutual, while others are unexpected and unwanted. Regardless of the reason for the ending or the manner in which it takes place, you are likely to experience intense emotions.

A separation or divorce is often experienced as a grief – the death of the vision of being together forever – with everything that entailed for you.

If you have children, worrying about them may be one of the hardest parts of your separation experience

Other challenges include:

  • Coping with spending less time with your children
  • Feeling that you have “failed”
  • Dealing with intense negative emotions towards your ex
  • Facing unexpected losses of family and friends due to alignment with your ex
  • Concerns about finances
  • Dealing with loneliness
  • Fear of finding happiness in a relationship ever again
  • Adapting to changes in your life, routine and household

Our team of therapists have specialized training and experience designed to help you heal individually, and if you are a parent, to understand how to support your children through this. You will learn how to navigate the emotional challenges presented by your children and find ways to co-parent that are healthy and effective.

We also have therapists who are trained to work directly with children through this difficult transition.

This is one of the most challenging experiences a family can go through. You don’t need to figure this out on your own. We are here to help you through this. Call today to get started.
