Working Through the Grief of Divorce

Working Through the Grief of DivorceDivorce is a very emotional decision that impacts every member of your family. It is normal to feel intense sadness, anger, regret, anxiety and even grief. Even when the decision to divorce is mutual, you may still need to work through a sense of loss. If you share children and a home, you may grieve the loss of your marriage, your existing family unit, or your sense of security. It is really important to acknowledge these feelings and work through them so that you and your family can move forward in the healthiest way possible. Johnson Mediation offers a wide variety of divorce support services to help you navigate the divorce process, including post-divorce support services.
