Discernment Counseling may be for you, if:
One partner is leaning out
You or your partner is wondering if divorce is the right option
one partner is leaning In
You or your partner is not quite ready to call it quits
You'd like to gain clarity
You and your partner are looking for the right path to choose, one that benefits everybody involved
Discernment Counseling will help you decide between three paths:
In this path, couples agree to keep things the same, and keep doing what they are doing.
In this path, couples agree to separate or divorce, and learn how to do so in a way that benefits all involved.
In this path, couples agree to do 6 months of work on the relationship, with divorce off the table. This is not a commitment to be together forever, but a commitment to 6 months of work with a reassessment after that time.
Alicia Taverner, LMFT
AS A TRAINED DISCERNMENT COUNSELOR
I CAN HELP YOU DECIDE WHETHER TO TRY AND RESTORE YOUR MARRIAGE TO HEALTH,
MOVE TOWARD DIVORCE,
OR TAKE A TIME OUT AND DECIDE LATER.
The goal is for you to gain clarity and confidence about a direction.
You will find a deeper understanding of your relationship and the possibilities for the future.
The goal is not to solve your marital problems, but to see if they are solvable.
You will be treated with compassion and respect no matter how you are feeling about your marriage at the moment.
Since you are both in different places, you will come in as a couple but the most important work occurs in the one-to-one conversations that you will have with me.
I RESPECT YOUR REASONS FOR DIVORCE WHILE TRYING TO OPEN UP THE POSSIBILITY
OF RESTORING THE MARRIAGE TO HEALTH.
