Divorce is not really an easy way out of a difficult marital situation. If you have children it can get very, very complicated and the children’s lives will be affected. It is often very stressful and confusing for children of any age when their parents get a divorce. Obviously divorce is a choice but there are other options to consider. One valuable option is marriage counseling with an experienced therapist. I have over 19 years of experience as a marriage and family therapist and I have been married to my honey for 30 years. 


Let’s face it marriage is sometimes difficult. There will be times in your marriage when you feel angry, hurt and frustrated with your spouse. Over time if these feelings are not appropriately expressed resentments begin to build up. These resentments and frustrations may seem insurmountable and communication with your spouse begins to breaks down. Perhaps you begin to view your spouse in a very negative fashion. That closeness and intimacy you once shared is just a faded memory and maybe the idea of divorce seems like a real option. Perhaps you are reeling from the discovery of an affair (“cheating”/infidelity) and this has your marriage in a tailspin. You may be experiencing a flood of emotions which are very difficult to endure. I can help you through this difficult time. There is hope for your marriage.
