THE LOVE YOU ONCE HAD IS NOW PAIN & ANGER
It can be hard to understand how the person you once knew could turn toward you with such anger, resentment, and spite. The person who once thought the world of you may now misinterpret your motivations and view your every gesture with suspicion and ill will. This person may even be the parent of your child.
YOU MIGHT BE CONSIDERING LEAVING
Maybe you're considering whether or not to leave your relationship, or perhaps your partner has already left or is threatening to leave. You're not sure what to do next. You may have children together and not know what's best for them.
Perhaps you've tried couples therapy and it didn't work, or maybe your partner won't go to therapy. Your partner might not want to deal with the hassle of arguing anymore, or maybe he or she just assumes you'll never leave and takes you for granted.
You might need to talk with someone who doesn't have an agenda, who won't take sides, and who can help you figure out for yourself what's right for you.
YOU MIGHT BE SEPARATED, BROKEN UP, OR FILING FOR DIVORCE
Maybe you or your partner have taken steps to separate, breakup (break up), or divorce. You may be the person initiating the separation, or perhaps it's your partner. One or both of you may want to stay together or feel ambivalent about breaking up.
You might be in process of moving out of a place you share with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Perhaps you're dealing with painful finanical and emotional concerns related to alimony, spousal support, child support, child custody or visitation. You might be considering having to sell your home or drastically changing your quality of life.
If you and your partner share financial obligations or children, the process of separating, breaking up, or divorcing might be a prolonged form of agony, with every court date or communication or interaction with your partner another opportunity for pain, hurt, and anger.
