Teens of Divorce
I provide support to teenagers whose parents are divorced or separated. Often a teen’s voice is lost in the untangling of a marriage and I am here to help them use that voice. It’s not easy living in two homes, meeting your parent’s significant other and adjusting to having a step-parent or step-siblings. Having someone to talk to outside of the family can make this experience a little less stressful for your teenager.
Co-Parenting Sessions for Separated and Divorced Parents
Trying to parent with an ex is extremely difficult. Issues that were present during the marriage remain and any differences that you had in parenting styles may exacerbate. Many parents have difficulty creating consistency between their two homes, which is crucial for a child’s social and emotional wellbeing. Co-parenting sessions can help you and your ex find ways to communicate better and create an environment that helps your child easily adjust to the many changes heading their way. Sessions may rotate between having both parents attend sessions and meeting with each parent individually.
Individual Adult Sessions
Going through a separation or divorce can trigger many emotions that you may have difficulty managing. All of a sudden your world is flipped upside down and you feel a sense of loss. The stages of a break up can feel very similar to the 5 Stage of Grief. I am happy to walk with you on your new journey as you mourn the relationship you once had and create a new path for yourself.
Support Group for Divorced Mothers
I am pleased to be offering a 6-session support group for divorced mothers. Going through a divorce can feel isolating and you might find that your closest friends and family members don’t offer the best advice and can’t relate to what you are going through. Many women find comfort in meeting other mothers who are going through the same experience. The right kind of support take you out of isolation and into connection.
