Divorce Q & A

What is divorce counseling?

Divorce counseling is a type of psychotherapy designed to help you cope with the emotional and logistical challenges of divorce.

If you and your spouse decide to end your marriage, there’s a lot to consider, including the finances, child custody, and property distribution. When combined with daily responsibilities like work, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed.

Divorce counseling presents an opportunity to identify and work through the emotions you’re experiencing. In addition, it teaches you healthy communication skills you can use to negotiate a parenting plan with your ex-spouse.

What is the purpose of divorce counseling?

Marriages don’t always work out. If you and your spouse decide to part ways, you might consider divorce counseling, even if the decision is amicable. When a marriage ends, it’s normal for you or your partner to experience feelings like shame, guilt, anger, or sadness. If you have children, these feelings might be amplified.

Enrolling in divorce counseling with Vincent can help you and your ex work through a difficult situation and prepare for the future.

What happens during divorce counseling?

Vincent provides divorce counseling virtually through telehealth appointments.

During the first visit, he asks you and your spouse about your relationship and the reason for your divorce. Make sure to answer his questions as honestly as possible. After assessing your situation, Vincent makes recommendations that align with your needs and circumstances.

If you decide to move forward with a divorce, Vincent helps you plan the following steps, including logistics for moving and what to expect in your new life as a single person. He can even teach you coping skills or help you develop a new life plan.

If you and your spouse decide you want to try and make things work, Vincent can provide tips for improved communication and conflict resolution.

How many divorce counseling sessions will I need?

The number of divorce counseling sessions you need depends on several factors, including you and your partner’s goals and the amount of progress made during each appointment. Vincent might recommend only one or two sessions if your divorce is amicable. If there’s animosity between you, more intensive counseling might be necessary.
