For Couples thinking about or considering divorce
Discernment counseling is for couples who are considering divorce but they want to take one more look at their relationship before making a permanent decision. Discernment counseling is for "mixed agenda" couples where one partner is considering separation and the other partner is not. This is not couple's therapy because at least one partner is not sure they want to save the relationship yet. Both partners are expected to attend 1 - 5 sessions where I will help them gain clarity and confidence in their decision about the future of their relationship based on a better understanding of their own contributions to how they got where they are. When the couple is ready to decide between three paths (Path 1 - stay the same, Path 2-divorce/separation, or Path 3-couple's therapy) then the discernment counseling is finished and I will help them with referrals to move forward on their chosen path.
