The stages of grief that one goes through upon separation and divorce is not so different when compared with the loss of a loved one. Divorce after all is the death of the marriage. It is important to find support when going through the stages of grief as judgment can be impaired resulting in poor decision making that can have a lasting effect on relationships, employment and mental health in general. While family and friends often provide support, both emotionally and financially, only a qualified professional is able to address the psychology of grief. Referrals can be made to such professionals. Do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist with those referrals.
