Divorce Counseling

Divorce is often felt like a death of a loved one. It marks a profound turning point, the end of a shared journey that was once filled with hopes and dreams. The emotional landscape of divorce is expansive. It is filled with feelings of fear, grief, anger, loneliness, and uncertainty. In the middle of this turmoil, concern for the well-being of the children usually takes the highest priority adding an additional layer of stress and responsibility.


Understanding the Emotional Journey

After divorce, it's normal to question whether feelings of happiness are even possible again. This not only challenges the sense of one's identity and future but also marks a new journey of moving through these powerful emotions while managing the practicalities of separation that this transition demands.


Focusing on What Matters Most

Amidst the complexities of divorce, it's crucial to understand the actions and attitudes that can either alleviate or exacerbate the situation, especially concerning the children caught in the transition. The impact of divorce on children is profound.  Therefore, finding ways to ease their path through this change is the highest priority. The goal is to foster resilience, ensuring that the children feel secure, loved, and understood despite the change in their family life.


Strategies for Positive Coping and Growth

Divorce counseling serves as a beacon of guidance and support, offering strategies to navigate the emotional maze of separation with compassion and strength. Through counseling, individuals and families can learn to:

  • Process and accept the range of emotions that accompany divorce, turning grief into growth.

  • Develop communication strategies that prioritize the well-being of children, maintaining a stable and loving environment for them.

  • Identify and implement coping mechanisms that facilitate emotional healing and personal development.

  • Reinforce a sense of security and normalcy for children, helping them to adjust to new family structures in healthy ways.

  • Build a co-parenting relationship that supports the emotional and physical needs of the children, emphasizing cooperation and respect.

Moving Forward with Hope and Resilience

Divorce counseling is not just about navigating the end of a marriage; it's about laying the groundwork for new beginnings. It offers a pathway to rediscover happiness and establish a fulfilling life post-divorce. For parents, it provides the tools and insights necessary to ensure that their children emerge from this transition resilient and secure.

Jewel saved me a fortune in lawyers and tons of aggravation. By the time we came to Jewel we agreed our marriage was over. She worked with us in a collaborative way and we were able to come to agreements between the two us. No need for lawyers. We only used a lawyer to write up what we agreed on. What could have been a very argumentative and expensive divorce, was worked out in a cooperative way without unnecessary expense and heartache. Thank you Jewel

My divorce could have been a disaster. Court battles, custody fights, battling lawyers. Jewel bless her soul was able to work with us in a way that turned a potentially disastrous situation into a workable one. We still continue to work with Jewel to mediate the daily issues and schedules and costs regarding the children. Jewel thanks for helping us to avoid a never ending painful and expensive struggle.

We were referred to Jewel by a friend of ours who worked with her to help mediate their divorce. They told us that Jewel saved them and their children a lifetime of aggravation and a huge amount of money.  Even though we already agreed on a divorce Jewel helped us work through a myriad of issues in a way that both of us could live with. Instead of trying to hurt each other we learned to work cooperatively. This helped us, our children and our bank  accounts.
