If you or your spouse are feeling ambivolent, even considering divorce, but have not made a decision and confused about what is the best path, then Discernment Counseling is designed for you. It’s a chance to slow down, take a breath, and look at your options for your marriage. 

Discernment Counseling is a new way of helping couples where one person is “leaning out” of the relationship—and not sure that regular marriage counseling would be helpful--while, the other partner  is “leaning in”—interested in rebuilding the marriage.

We will assist you in discerning whether to try to restore your marriage to health, move toward divorce, or keep things as they are.

The goal is for you to gain clarity and confidence about a direction, based on a deeper understanding of your relationship and its possibilities for the future.

The goal is not to solve your marital problems, but to see if they are solvable. You will each be treated with compassion and respect no matter how you are feeling about your marriage at the moment. 

You will come in as a couple, but the most important work occurs in the one-to-one conversations with the counselor. Why? Because you are starting out in different places.

The counselor respects your concerns and helps you explore options including the possibility of restoring the marriage to health.

The counselor emphasizes the importance of each of you seeing your own contributions to the problems and the possible solutions. This will be useful in future relationships even if this one ends.

Number of Sessions: Typically five to 10 counseling sessions. 

Discernment Counseling is not Suited for these situations:
• When one spouse has already made a final decision to divorce

• When one spouse is coercing the other to participate

• When there is danger of domestic violence

• When active, untreated addiction is present.
