Counseling Feature This Month

For couples on the brink of separation or divorce. . . .



Divorce is often an attempt to solve a problem that people think can’t be solved in any other way.

When you as a couple are going through troubled times in your relationship, it can be very difficult for you to make the important life –changing decision about the future.

What’s in your best interest?  There may also be children involved.

The goal of discernment counseling is to help you, as a couple, gain clarity and confidence in deciding whether to try to preserve your marriage and make it better, or to take another path, such as a separation or divorce.

Discernment Counseling is not suitable in these situations:

• When one spouse has already made a final decision to divorce

• When one spouse is coercing the other to participate

• When there is danger of domestic violence

This counseling is time-limited and usually takes one to five sessions.
