Marriage Counseling Helps Couples Move Forward
Marriage counseling at Take Charge, Inc. helps struggling couples make changes as individuals and in their relationships, and decide if and when to proceed with a trial separation or collaborative divorce. The new year is often a time of resolutions and reflection. For couples whose marriages are struggling, this often seems like the right time to end the relationship. This happens so frequently, in fact, that January has become known as Divorce Month.
Terri utilizes Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) in marriage counseling to help you and your spouse move past the surface problems you face into the root issues that brought your relationship to this point. In these root issues, Terri guides you to recognize the destructive patterns of behavior and communication you and your spouse have created in your relationship. Couples recognize these patterns and behaviors are the enemy in the marriage, not each other.
Even if your reasons for divorce are valid, taking that first step brings confusion, turmoil, pain and indecision to your life. Terri can guide you to make sense of the confusion and bring perspective to the divorce question. In some cases, Terri can offer ways to heal the relationship through marriage counseling, so divorce does not seem like the only option.
If the problems in your marriage are beyond reconciliation in marriage counseling, Terri also offers divorce counseling and coaching to help you plan a thoughtful end to your marriage with as little stress and animosity as possible.
Terri offers divorce coaching to help clients in the divorce process interact and communicate with their spouse more effectively to achieve the best possible outcome. Terri offers options for individuals or couples beginning the divorce process: collaborative process and the non-collaborative process.
Divorce is not just a legal process. Divorce is also a financial and emotional process. The collaborative process allows divorcing couples to address every aspect in the divorce process, not just the issue required by law. The collaborative divorce process is an interdisciplinary process based on professionals working as a team. Terri works as a team member with all the professionals involved to work together in a non-adversarial manner to reach long term resolution instead of short-term results.
The non-collaborative process incorporates Terri as your personal, individual counselor within the traditional legal process. Terri becomes your support and helps assist in the divorce process with the voice of calm objectivity and reason, but not necessarily in tandem with your legal team or the legal team of your spouse.
