Divorce Adjustment

Divorce Adjustment

Divorce turns life upside down. Dealing with the emotional, social, legal and financial adjustments during and following a divorce can be overwhelming. Having a trained therapist to guide and accompany you on this journey can be a lifesaver.

Divorce is often referred to as a roller coaster. There are opportunities for self reflection, self discovery and thoughtful change. Dealing with the loneliness of separation and uncertainty about the future can be frightening and depressing. Stress levels are high and sometimes lead to physical symptoms, as well as emotional distress. Dealing with family and friends during a divorce can be a source of support or an additional source of stress. Recovery from a divorce takes time.

We have skilled therapists trained in family interactions, relationship therapy and divorce counseling to guide you and support you during this process. We also have child and family therapists to work with your children, should they be suffering divorce related stress. Family Psychology Associates offers therapy in a non-judgmental, supportive environment and your treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs and family circumstances.
