Therapy During Divorce Can Be Highly Beneficial

The divorce process can be mentally and emotionally taxing, especially considering all the uncharted waters you will have to navigate. You might find it worth your while to seek the assistance of a therapist during this process to help you take care of your emotional wellbeing.

Here are a few reasons to consider doing so.

  • Take care of yourself: During a time in your life when it can seem like everything is out of your control, seeking the assistance of a therapist can help you take back some of that control and focus on yourself. It’s important to work through your emotions in a healthy, supportive environment rather than letting them fester in isolation.
  • Plan for your future: A therapist can help you envision the months and years after your divorce and encourage you to set your sights on what comes next, allowing you to focus on positive goal setting.
  • Develop coping strategies: Not only does therapy allow you to develop healthy coping strategies for yourself, but it also provides you with some strategies you can work through with your children. Children often experience some significant emotional turmoil during their divorce process, so giving them the tools they need to cope is extremely important for their own mental health.
  • Have a smoother transition: Moving from one phase of your life into another can be quite difficult emotionally. You need some time to grieve the loss of the life you had, but also must give yourself permission to embrace the challenges that lie ahead of you. Therapists help you through this transition and all the emotions that come with it.

  • "I first came to Ms. Jacquelyn Lutz of Appelhof, Pfeifer and Hart in October of 2016. It was definitely the worst time in my life and she compassionately spoke with me about my options. Ms. Lutz thoroughly explained the laws, statutes, process and what to expect going forward. What was supposed to be one case, turned into three intricate cases that took a huge toll on me and my family. Ms. Lutz represented me in court on all three cases with a vast knowledge of the laws and how to proceed accordingly. During all three cases she kept me informed, calm, gave me resources to utilize, and (most important) gave me a realistic view of what may come next. Ms. Lutz knew each case required a great deal of knowledge and creative thinking on how to legally proceed forward with each case. My family and friends are forever grateful for the amazing representation by Ms. Lutz. I highly recommend Ms. Lutz for anyone needing or considering superb representation for any kind of family law.
