How Therapy Can Help Recover From Divorce

Psychotherapy with a licensed professional experienced in helping individuals, couples, and children through the process of separation or divorce can be helpful. Patricia Hecht, who is a licensed therapist in San Francisco, is experienced in the process of divorce recovery.

Should you divorce? Therapeutic sessions with a psychotherapist can help in identifying the possible options in a non-confrontational setting. The therapeutic session is designed to be a safe place for all members of the family to discuss their differences and plan for recovery. Individual therapy for both partners in their own sessions with the therapist is also a key part of helping cope with the process.

Psychotherapy can help deal with the emotional turmoil of divorce and its consequences. Cognitive behavioral strategies can be taught and practiced to move through this traumatic time. People can learn new ways of thinking that can reduce the stress and anxiety involved with divorce and breakup of the family unit. Besides the emotional turmoil, the financial consequences of divorce are often significant and cause emotional stress.

If children are involved, a trained therapist can help the adults learn how to comfort and reassure children of any age. An experienced therapist can help adults communicate and comfort children in a way appropriate for their developmental level.

Reactions to divorce vary. Individual reactions can vary based on people's cultural background, prior experiences, and if they have experienced the divorce of their own parents. Therapy can benefit most people, and help them deal with the stress and loss of attachment to their mate and family unit as it was. Help provided by an experienced San Francisco therapist can give you a good start on the road to recovery. Many people, with the help provided from an experienced Bay Area therapist, can move through the stressful period of divorce and separation and recover. Learning cognitive behavioral strategies can help develop positive ways of thinking and relating to others during and after this difficult process.
