Divorce Counseling

Divorce counseling helps families deconstruct a relationship with respect and dignity for all.

Divorce is more than a court order terminating a marriage.  It is a life transition and may be wrought with unfulfilled dreams, profound grief, and sometimes a sense of new-found freedom. Additionally, parents tend to be coping to manage their own feelings of loss and grief while also pressured to make difficult decisions about how to handle their children.  Stressors are present for all involved.  Counseling is one way to help cope and restore health during this time of transition.

Don’t put off divorce counseling if you believe this will help both yourself and your children transition in a more helpful manner.  Call or email today to speak with a licensed counselor for a free consultation to determine if counseling is the right step for you and your family: 734-807-0162 or info@bedfordbehavioral.com
