Divorce and Breakup Recovery
Ending a relationship can be an incredibly painful period in one's life. However, it can also present an opportunity for healing, growth and self-compassion.
Divorce and Separations
Considering or experiencing the end of a relationship can be incredibly painful. Most of us imagine that relationships will last forever and seldom foresee how challenging and intensely distressing the end of a union can be. After all, it is likely that we invested a significant amount of time, effort, trust, commitment, and love, in hopes that our romance would flourish. Unfortunately, relationships often do come to an end, leaving one or both partners emotionally wounded or unsure of how to proceed ahead in their lives.
When relationships do end, most people will experience a whirlwind of emotions further complicating the ability to make rational and heartfelt decisions. Separations, break-ups, or divorces can be emotionally destabilizing and may come as a result of a myriad of compounding factors. At other times, single-issue problems or an expected event may lead to its termination. In nearly all cases, both partners are likely to experience sadness, loss, trauma, and depression or anxiety. A divorce or a breakup can place a significant amount of pressure on our mental, physical, and financial well-being.
Communication in relationships is essential to having a happy, healthy partnership.

Types of Divorce & Breakup Recovery Therapy
Individual therapy: Facing a permanent breakup is one of the most stressful things an individual can experience. So, it’s understandable that it can affect your mental wellness and sense of self-worth. Grief, depression, anxiety, and other conditions may emerge following a break-up. Individual therapy allows individuals to focus on developing the emotional and cognitive tools needed to process their emotions in more caring and positive ways.
Joint Therapy: There are times when both partners wish to find closure. They may opt to pursue joint therapy to facilitate a healthier separation. Here, the therapist sets boundaries and guidelines and addresses each partner’s most important issues. In addition, joint therapy may give a couple in need an opportunity to work out new living arrangements, and parenting decisions, and settle on financial matters with less emotional pain.
