The decision to conclude a marriage is neither swift nor easy. Individuals in strained marriages often go to great lengths to preserve their union and avoid divorcing. Despite their best efforts, there are times when a relationship reaches a tipping point in which it becomes more difficult to remain together than to part ways.

The impact of divorce is far-reaching and as one’s sense of stability, security and familiarity alter.

The predictability of life fades as the immediate future becomes fluid, changing and in flux.

This very public major life transition is disorienting and is accompanied by a wide array of emotions.


Gaining insights into this experience can help.

Experienced relationship and couples counselor, Terri DiMatteo, LPC has created an educational and supportive presentation to help those who are divorcing better understand the myriad of emotions experienced during this transition.
