Divorce Recovery

Since 1994 The Center for Divorce Recovery, a division of Affiliates in Counseling, has been working with couples and families going through the dissolution of their marriage. We recognize that people going through divorce experience sadness, self-blame, anxiety, shame, guilt, rage and a variety of other painful feelings that at times feel overwhelming. Our goal is not to help clients simply suppress or distract themselves from their pain, but to help them work through these feelings so they can feel more free, more whole and more in control of their lives.

We are particularly attuned to not only the effects of divorce on children, but also their unique needs as they go through this difficult ordeal. In addition to working with conflictual family systems, we work individually with the children to help them develop goals that foster resilience and healthy self-esteem.

We are dedicated to assisting all members of the family in recovering from the trauma of divorce as they move from coping and surviving to more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

Affiliates in Counseling has therapists available to:

  • Help your children better adjust to the divorce.
  • Assist you in managing the complexities of the divorce process.
  • Give you the support you need to begin this major transition.
  • Help you co-parent or raise a blended family.
