Do you feel overwhelmed by your feelings?
Divorce is one of the most stressful events that people commonly experience. You are asked to make difficult decisions on unfamiliar issues at a time when your emotions feel overwhelming. For years you may have turned to your spouse for emotional support. That support is gone. Friends may have mixed loyalties. If you have children, you want to minimize their stress, even while yours is at a peak.
If you feel as if your head is about to explode, that's normal.
I offer short-term, supportive psychotherapy for people who are having difficulty coping with the stress of divorce. My style of supportive therapy is humanistic and client-centered. I start from the idea you are normal, but very stressed. My goal is to improve your ability to cope and to help you help your children to cope.
Many people turn to their marital therapist to help them cope. This can be a serious mistake.
Please take advantage of my free 45 minute consultation to discuss the issue and to find out if I can be helpful to you.
