Marriage Counseling: Save Your Relationship Or Plan A Thoughtful Divorce

Marriage counseling with Terri Dichiser at Take Charge, Inc. can help resolve relationship issues that have come up during the coronavirus crisis.

Marriage counseling with Terri Dichiser at Take Charge, Inc. can help resolve relationship issues that have come up during the coronavirus crisis. ABC News reported last month that a surge in divorce cases is expected across the country as COVID-19 confinement ends. Many couples forced to spend all of their time together have decided to end their marriages for a variety of reasons. It is important to know that a contentious divorce is not the only available option for most people.

Friction from forced proximity, financial stress due to lost wages and health care, and exhaustion from nonstop family time are common problems resulting from the COVID-19 crisis that can be addressed and often resolved with marriage counseling. If they are not dealt with, these issues are likely to fester and become bigger problems down the road, even after restrictions are lifted and life resumes some semblance of normality.

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.

For some couples, coming to terms with their mortality during the coronavirus crisis has led to a resolve to change their lives. For others, more traumatic issues have arisen as confinement has led to an increase in domestic violence. 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.

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.

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 two models of divorce coaching 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. All professionals involved 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 coach within the traditional legal process. Terri becomes your advocate in the divorce process and the voice of calm objectivity and reason, but not necessarily in tandem with your legal team or the legal team of your spouse.

Whether it’s reconnecting with your partner and resolving issues through marriage counseling or planning a conscious uncoupling through divorce counseling or coaching, Take Charge, Inc. is here to help you move forward from the problems that the coronavirus crisis has brought up in your relationship.
