Divorce Counseling for Kids & Family Counseling After Divorce

Going through a divorce can be devastating for both parents and their children. Divorce means the end of a relationship and the beginning of a new life, which can be scary for many people to deal with, and strong feelings can occur that may lead to anger and irrational behavior. It’s normal to seek counseling for your family and your kids individually during and after divorce.

Divorce counseling helps teach coping skills that couples need when working toward making a new life on their own. Counseling provides a safe place to share thoughts and feelings, which is imperative when making a life-changing transition more manageable and less emotionally draining.

Divorce counseling helps the couple uncover the cause of any anger and resentment. Counseling is done in a neutral environment so the couple can freely express themselves in non-threatening exchanges.

Understanding and Managing Trauma With Age Regression Therapy

Traumatic experiences can happen to any of us, and they affect each person differently. In particular, traumatic events in which severe physical harm or death was imminent or occurred can trigger feelings of stress and panic that last for weeks, months, even years afterward.
