Counseling Designed to Support Couples on the Brink
Discernment Counseling is a short-term process for couples who are questioning whether to remain in a marriage and work to improve it or leave it. Oftentimes, couples considering separation and/or divorce struggle to know whether or not they are ready, willing and/or able to do so. This counseling is designed to assist them in gaining clarity in making decisions about their relationship and also provides a roadmap for next steps so they can move forward in healthier, more constructive ways.
The goal of Discernment Counseling is to assist couples in deciding on and committing to a path forward. Creating a shared understanding and a distinct plan alleviates stress and tension.
As a Discernment Counselor, I work with the couple for up to five sessions in a combination of joint and individual meetings to assist them in developing the necessary clarity in order to effectively move forward.
