Discernment Counseling

Often couples will come for marriage counseling and during the initial session it is apparent that one or both couples are ambivalent about fully participating in counseling. A great limited session option is Discernment Counseling. Discernment Counseling is for couples where at least one spouse has some doubts about moving forward with a divorce or committing to marriage counseling. The purpose of this counseling is not to work on your marriage problems. The goal of this counseling is to gain clarity and confidence about what the next step is for your marriage. There are three options for decision with Discernment Counseling: Are you going to leave things as they are, are you done with the relationship and going to proceed with divorce, or are you willing to go all in and commit to approximately 6 months of marriage counseling?
Discernment Counseling
This is a short term counseling method of 1-5 sessions focusing on making a decision on one of the three options listed above. The sessions are typically 1 1/2 hours of individual and couple time. The sessions are focused on discerning how your marriage got to this point and what role each of you played in that, and what areas of your relationship need to change. The clarity and understanding couples gain about their relationship and how it got there often motivates them to fully engage in repairing their marriage or relationship.
