Ways a Mental Health Professional Helps You During Your Divorce

Divorce couple

When you are in the deep trenches of getting a divorce, no matter how amicable, you, your spouse and your children’s mental health can be stressed beyond measure.

Often times you may find yourself in flight, fight or freeze mode. Hashing out the what if’s, why’s and how could be emotional roller coasters.

Did you know you can have a mental health professional support your family during the process?

When you and your spouse agree to utilize the collaborative divorce process, you are part of a team that has mental health professionals that can help you and your family better deal with any issues that come up.

This process not only consists of each of you having your own attorney, but it also utilizes other valuable team members, one of them being a mental health professional.

Here’s how a mental health professional can help during the separation process:

  • Help determine the concerns of all parties
  • Improve the lines of communications and develop strategies to move forward after the divorce
  • Can be neutral in conflict resolution
  • Assist in breaking down impasses of your divorce agreement
  • Develop a parenting plan for co-parenting
  • Work with you to process your emotions in a healthy way
  • Help keep your family unit intact

We need to learn that pushing down and ignoring our mental health is not a healthy way for anyone to move through the divorce process.

When you utilize the experts in the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association, you can let down your anxiety and stress because you will know that when your divorce is finalized, each party involved, including your children will be ready to face the future with confidence.
