Couples and Marriage Counseling
If you believe your relationship is worth fighting for, but have reached a roadblock, considering couples counseling could be the best option. Counseling is recommended as soon as discontent arises in a marriage. However, studies show that on an average, partners do not seek therapy until they’ve been unhappy for six years. And yet, the more time has passed, the more difficult it may be to repair the relationship. In some cases, a couple who has already decided to separate, may reach out to therapy in order to end the relationship amicably and respectfully.
“You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them”
You have to feel before you heal. Healing is a process that allows you to make better decisions based on your journey rather than allowing those experiences to keep you from the amazing life you deserve.
Marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy, is a type of psychotherapy. Marriage counseling better enables couples to make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthening their relationship or going their separate ways.

Divorce is one of life’s toughest challenges. Divorce creates a fracture in the foundation of the entire life of a family, causing a great amount of pain for those who are involved. However, living through divorce provides an opportunity for extraordinary personal development and growth. All in all, it can be difficult to go through the process of divorce alone, and discussing private details with friends or family members is not always possible or helpful. Having a divorce counselor involved before a divorce can help both parties learn to effectively and civilly communicate during the process. And, if there are children involved, a gentle, healthy divorce is essential for the well-being of family members, plus it will reduce the damage and pain of divorce for the kids. Pre-divorce counseling can help parenting issues associated with divorce, while providing a discussion for the proper ways to inform children about an approaching divorce. At Therapeutic Center for hope, our pre-divorce counseling will help individuals going through an impending divorce be better prepared for some of the emotions and feelings that they might experience throughout the divorce process. Our divorce counselors will teach helpful strategies for coping with divorce that can be applied when those going through a divorce have trouble over the following months.
No matter what the reasoning is for divorce, the ending of a long-term, committed relationship can quickly shatter one’s world as well as generate some uncomfortable emotions such as grief, sadness, stress, and frustration. Divorce can leave many individuals feeling overwhelmed, and for some, being uncertain about what the future holds can oftentimes seem worse than an unsatisfied relationship itself. The involvement of a caring post-divorce counselor enables individuals to talk through their feelings rather than bottling it up inside. The confusion and anxiety of marriage loss and life change can be healed with the help of post-divorce counseling. By working with a post-divorce counselor at Therapeutic Center For Hope, you will be better enabled to discover your identity as a single person, so that you can start to move forward and welcome your new life without a partner.
Collaborative Divorce Mediation
Divorce mediation is a one of the most commonly used methods of negotiating settlement for married couples who want to get a divorce. Anyone who is involved in a divorce should consider mediation as an option.

A mediator meets with the parties in an effort to discuss and resolve the problems in a couples divorce. A mediator’s job is not to make the decisions, but act as a facilitator to find a solution that is best for both sides. The involvement of a divorce mediator will make it easier for parties involved to better communicate and understand their individual and common interests so that they are better enabled to explore reasonable options, make smart choices, and reach agreements that benefit both sides. For those in need of a divorce mediator, Therapeutic Center For Hope has experienced and certified divorce mediators who can help find a solution that is best for both individuals going through the divorce process, ending in a settlement of all the problems associated with divorce.
