Turn an Ending Into a New Beginning —
Reclaim Your Life After Divorce

The end of a marriage or other long-term relationship often leads to feelings of anger, confusion, isolation, and fear, and an inability to move forward in life.

After living life for so long as a partner, it can be difficult to recover one's own identity, desires, and goals, let alone know how to go about planning and implementing those goals in your daily life.

It is not uncommon for a spouse to take on the guilt for a marriage's failing when the other partner is the one who breaks up the marriage. In fact, the partner who breaks up the marriage often shifts the blame to their spouse in order to lessen their own feelings of responsibility and guilt.

Divorce recovery counseling can help you cope with, and work through, guilt, anxiety, and anger, pick up the shattered pieces of your life, and (to mix metaphors) create a new life from the ashes.

None of this is to say the recovery process is easy.

It can take months, or even years, to get over the loss. And, if children are involved, the parenting responsibilities and relationship never ends. Thus, it becomes even more critical to move on with confidence, even if only for your children's sake. But you can move on!

You can not only begin again but—as difficult as it may be to believe—you can get to a place where you're even better off than you were when you were married.

In fact, you may be surprised to discover that your marriage would never have given you the happy, fulfilling life you deserve and can now create for yourself.

But, before you get to this point, you have to have a willingness to look at your own part in why the marriage failed, which takes bravery, and accept what has happened and move forward towards a new life that holds more for you. And this takes work… Sometimes a lot of work.

Time alone will not heal you to the point where you are a whole, healthy person. You have to work through the grief, loss, disappointment, anger, anxiety, frustration, and self-doubt. This is precisely where divorce recovery counseling can help!

Talking to someone who is professionally trained to deal with relationship issues—someone who will get to know you and your unique situation while providing a safe, supportive, and confidential environment—is vital to the healing process.

You can learn to let go of everything that holds you back from a great life after divorce, a life filled with purpose, fulfillment, and joy. I know. Not only am I a therapist, I am also a divorced woman. I've been through it.

Although divorce is a painful life transition, it also holds great opportunities and possibilities for your future.

Not only can you survive divorce, I promise you that you can also grow, evolve, and go on to lead an extraordinary life. The decision is yours, but you can take it from me… You don't need to endure another day of suffering!
