Divorce Q & A

What is divorce?

Divorce marks the end of a marriage and is one of the most stressful life events that people go through. While a healthy marriage can stimulate your mental, emotional, and physical well-being, it’s also possible for a marriage to become troublesome or stale enough that it no longer provides those benefits. 

Divorce provides a legal way to separate yourself and your assets from your spouse. Even if the separation is mutual, getting a divorce can cause strong feelings of isolation, loneliness, and low self-esteem. The process can also foster a sense of resentment. 

As easy as it may be to get caught in the financial and legal parts of divorce, you shouldn’t neglect your emotions in the process. Cari Lister LPC offers counseling services for individuals, couples, and families going through a legal separation. 

What is divorce counseling?

Divorce counseling is a service that Cari offers with regular virtual appointments. You and your spouse collaborate with Cari on dealing with the strong emotions that can arise during the separation process and learning how to better communicate your needs for the present and future. 

Cari also teaches you coping skills for the stress of a divorce and can help you prepare for life on your own. This significant life change has widespread impacts on your emotional well-being and your family members, including children. Therefore, it’s important to behave as civilly as possible and learn to manage your emotions in a healthy way. 

Pre-divorce counseling happens before and during the divorce proceedings, while post-divorce counseling continues afterward. Cari works with you to decide how either or both can benefit in your case. 

What are the benefits of counseling for divorce?

While it’s possible to go through the ending of marriage without help, there are distinct advantages of opting to participate in divorce counseling. A few of the benefits are:

  • Minimizing the impact on your children
  • Developing a healthy outlook for the future
  • Improving communication between you and your spouse
  • Managing your own emotional health
  • Managing your own physical health
  • Avoiding social withdrawal or isolation

For some people, divorce increases or causes complications like depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. Cari works with you to develop healthy emotion-based coping mechanisms to manage these effects.
