Divorce and Separation Support Groups
• San Francisco and Berkeley Locations •
Get the support you need to move forward, and heal yourself.
It can take 2-3 years to recover from divorce. You need to create a new identity, discover who you are as a single person, find a sense of belonging within your social circle and your community, and sometimes adjust to single parenthood.
In this support group you will gain strategies, learn to cope and begin to heal by relating to others in similar situations. Facilitated discussion and sharing of experiences within the group will help you gain insight, acceptance and self-awareness.
This group will become a safe place for you to share these feelings without fear of judgment.
Remember- the disorientation of divorce can last a long time, and the process of finding your footing is not linear. There are days when you feel grounded and secure. Then a trigger can lead to a fresh wave of grief, anger and confusion.
If you have kids, you have to re-learn how to deal with your ex, shift communication styles, become more formal and distant. It may be hard to create new boundaries with your ex. The fighting may continue, or one of you may need more distance while the other does not.
While the emotional upheaval is at it's worst, you may be dealing with lawyers and court appearances. This just adds to feelings of frustration, fear and vulnerability. Having group support makes a huge difference because it helps you transform those negative feelings into strength.
