Is Your Marriage On The Brink? Can It Be Saved?

If you or your spouse are considering divorce, but are not completely sure that’s the best path, there is a new opportunity called Discernment Counseling. It’s a chance to slow down, take a breath, and look at your options for your marriage.

It will help you:

  • Gain clarity and confidence about what steps to take with your marriage
  • Understand what has happened to your marriage
  • Look at three sides of your problems: yours, your spouse's, and an objective professional's perspective
  • Evaluate the possibility of solving your problems and staying married
  • Decide whether to move towards divorce or make a last all-out effort to restore your marriage to health

Chances are either you or your spouse feels too little hope or energy to start traditional couples counseling. Or, perhaps you've even tried that road before.

Discernment Counseling is specially designed for couples where one spouse is leaning towards divorce and the other wants to preserve the marriage.

Couples like this don't do well in traditional marriage counseling that aims at solving marital problems. They need a different approach. The focus of Discernment Counseling is NOT on solving marital problems, but on seeing if they could potentially be solved.

Sessions involve separate conversations with each spouse, as well as time as a couple. Discernment Counseling is short term (just 1 to 5 sessions) and leads to a decision to either divorce or give the marriage a major last effort, with a clear agenda for change.

Who Is Discernment Counseling For?

  • People considering divorce, but not sure it's the right path for them
  • People who want to take one more look at their relationship before making a permanent decision
  • People who want to give their marriage another chance, even though their spouse may be moving toward divorce

My interest in forensic psychology derives from my desire to ensure that people are treated justly and that everyone has the same opportunities. To me, justice emphasizes logic and weighing principles to determine moral rights and responsibilities. It also includes care reasoning which involves empathy and compassion; the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. I want to know that my work and expertise is helping make a positive difference in the world. Not many practitioners feel comfortable working within the legal system; therefore, I have brought together clinicians, and partner with other professionals, who provide people with opportunities for respectful conflict resolution.
