Divorce/Breakup Recovery

At Lighthouse, we understand that the end of a relationship can be an emotionally challenging and overwhelming time. Our divorce and breakup recovery counseling services are designed to help you heal, rediscover your strength, and embrace a brighter future. Going through a divorce or other breakup often triggers a wide range of emotions, including sadness, anger, confusion, and grief. Therefore, we provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to express your feelings, process your emotions, and find healthy ways to navigate your next steps. Our counselors can guide you in exploring your values, goals, and personal growth opportunities. 

Divorce and breakups bring significant changes in various aspects of life, including family dynamics, living arrangements, and financial circumstances. We help you navigate these changes, develop effective coping strategies, and adjust to your new reality. We then provide guidance on managing stress, setting boundaries, and developing resilience as you rebuild your life.

For individuals with children, co-parenting after divorce can present unique challenges. Some of our counselors specialize in co-parenting support: helping you establish effective communication, manage conflicts, and create a healthy co-parenting environment that prioritizes the well-being of your children. We offer guidance on co-parenting strategies, addressing children’s emotions, and fostering a cooperative co-parenting relationship.

Equally as important as navigating the present is preparing for a healthier and more fulfilling future. So, we also provide guidance on setting boundaries, enhancing communication, and cultivating self-esteem to create a solid foundation for future relationships. We seek lessons from past relationships and develop necessary skills for building healthy connections. 

How do we work with individuals and families through divorce/breakups?

Our counselors will utilize a myriad of therapeutic techniques in your counseling. Some of these include Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Techniques,  Family Systems Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). You will find that our counselors care for you and your needs and will help you heal by establishing goals that help you move forward in a healthier way.
