Discernment Counseling

Discernment counseling is a therapeutic approach designed to help couples who are seriously contemplating divorce. 

  • Geared toward “mixed agenda” couples—one person is leaning out of the relationship and the other is leaning in.
  • Limited to only one to five sessions—brief!
  • Focused on individual conversations to gain a deeper understanding of what’s happened to the relationship and each person’s contribution to the problems.
  • Committed to the goal of helping each couple develop clarity and confidence about a future path for their marriage.  
      • Path one is the status quo—the relationship as it has been.
      • Path two is separation/divorce.
      • Path three is a six-month commitment to couples therapy with divorce off the table, after which they can decide whether to stay or leave.

Why We Do This Work - Since 2000

With many paths from which to choose, there is an ultimate journey for each of us. Every path will undoubtedly bring pain and some will bring rewards as well. On a few paths we’ll feel lost. Lost from others. And on other paths and more painfully, we’ll feel lost from ourselves. A path is simply a route, a way to spend the time, to get to the end. No one is exempt from the labor of seeking not just a path along which to travel, but from finding their truest journey. A journey is a path with meaning, with purpose and clarity of mind. A journey is felt when the mind, heart and soul are in alignment - where joy and beauty are effortlessly experienced. A journey is not a straight line, but circular and twisted at times. And some will take but a step in this lifetime. Nonetheless, for many, they must seek out this grand journey, for a simple path is not enough. Our joy and meaning comes from supporting and guiding those lost somewhere on a path. Our purpose feels fulfilled when we nurture another along on their journey.
