Divorce Recovery Counseling
Going through divorce can be a scary, sad and confusing experience as lives that were once intertwined are painfully separated. Children, family, finances, assets, friends, and living situations are profoundly impacted by divorce. Relationships can change, and sometimes sides are drawn. The emotional turmoil accompanying divorce can include everything from anxiety, and anger to confusion, grief and perhaps paradoxically even a sense of relief. It can be overwhelming to navigate through the emotional trauma pre and post-divorce.
