Marriage therapists are relationship experts, who help couples effectively communicate about conflicts and issues impacting their marriage. They help couples uncover their breakdowns in communication and teach the tools and skills needed to express their needs and feelings assertively to each other. Couples can learn new strategies to support and strengthen their relationship rather than tear it down.
If ultimately divorce is the answer, a therapist can help you and your family recover from divorce. Support can be provided to help you deal with the painful process of divorce and teach you how to adjust through the transition.
The therapist will also help both parties communicate their post-divorce expectations effectively and civilly. A divorce counselor may also be able to help you find support groups and organizations for children or parents who have gone through or are going through a divorce.
