Has A Recent Divorce Left You Feeling Alone And Searching For Support?
Are you looking for a healthy, mutual support system during and after divorce? Maybe you have children who could benefit from additional coping tools to get through this time. You or your family might be experiencing feelings of worry, sadness, or personal failure. You might feel like you have lost a part of your life, even though the divorce was for the best.
Even if your divorce has gone relatively smoothly, the upheaval of such a drastic change can have a huge impact on your life and the life of your family. Divorce counseling can help you continue to navigate your life after divorce with civility and respect, as well as provide you and your family with the support you need to work together through this difficult time.
How Can Counseling Help?
I’m Cathy Neville, and I want to help you ensure that your life after divorce is as positive and healthy as possible. Even in the most mutual of separations, I believe that the loss of a spouse can create a grieving experience. Divorce counseling can help you fully accept your separation in a healthy, safe way. Additionally, counseling can provide you with tools to communicate effectively with your children or other family members who might be struggling to make sense of the changes brought by your divorce.
In divorce counseling, I will help you navigate your life after divorce. The stress of a divorce can often increase feelings of anxiety, worry, or depression. It is normal to feel afraid and alone while enduring a loss like divorce, and counseling can help you stay grounded and positive. Many people who utilize counseling during or after a divorce are better able see the opportunity for personal growth that accompanies this major change.
“Isn’t counseling normally for people with a problem? My problem was my ex. What good can counseling provide me now?”
Even if your divorce was mutual, enduring such a change can still be difficult. To lose your spouse brings on a number of additional stressors. Divorce counseling can help you stay positive by giving you a time and place to discuss any issues. Counseling can also help you accept change yourself by giving you additional methods of coping and releasing your stress.
The goal of all counseling is to help clients learn how to develop and maintain a positive outlook. Any person, especially when experiencing a major life change, can benefit from counseling.
Why is Divorce Counseling With You Different?
I am a licensed professional in counseling. I received my Masters Degree in Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio, specializing in grief and loss. Because feelings of grief often accompany divorce, my experience as a grief counselor gives me an increased awareness of the emotional journey you endure after a divorce.
Additionally, I will establish a rapport and gain your trust through my ability to imagine myself in your world. Clients like the way I find and point out their strengths instead of dwelling on their deficiencies. I can show you how to use those strengths in solving your problems and facilitate change in your life. I’ll enable you to see you DO have the tools to solve your own problems. I believe in perseverance even in the hardest cases—I never give up on my clients.
I am constantly dedicated to observing the latest research in an attempt to find what may work for my clients. With years of life experience, I know what it feels like to hurt and what it takes to heal.
