Discernment Counseling is a process for couples with a “mixed agenda” for their relationship. That means at least one partner is ambivalent or unsure if working on the marriage is the right thing for them, at that time. Often, one partner is leaning in, or wanting to save the relationship and one partner is leaning out, or considering ending the relationship or divorce. Sometimes both partners are actually leaning out but haven’t yet decided that divorce is the right answer for them.

Couples counseling is a very specialized and often complex area of treatment. Before you begin couples counseling, make sure your therapist has been well trained and has experience working with a variety of couples. Generally, qualified therapists will have graduate level coursework and supervised clinical experience in working with couples before beginning to practice independently. There are many approaches to working with couples; ask your potential therapist how he or she works to make sure it fits with your needs.

The most important factor in children’s well-being and healthy adjustment from one home to two is the quality of their parents’ relationship. Separating or divorced parents often keep falling into the same old communication traps that were a problem in the marriage. They have trouble building new patterns that will work as co-parents. They both want what is best for the children, but are unable to agree on what that means, and are unable to work effectively, which is what their children need most. As a divorce parent coach, I use my experience and training in relationships to help parents learn new approaches and put new communication practices in place. Parents receive concrete tips and feedback, as well as insight into their own thinking and behaviors that may be contributing to the problem. The process works the best when I can coach both parents at the same time, but given that you can only change yourself, it is also effective to just work with one side of the parenting team.
