Naperville Divorce Therapists Serving the Chicagoland Area

Divorce is an emotional journey that often requires rebuilding your life. The idea of living without your partner can feel overwhelming or even impossible. This is especially true if you relied on them for financial support, shared parental responsibilities, or countless other things that made your marriage the foundation of your life. But with the help of a trained therapist, you can learn how to move forward to a brighter future.

JCA Mental Health knows how difficult a divorce can be, especially for LGBTQIA++ individuals who may face additional stigmas about their marriages. In the aftermath, you need stable footing, and that’s where we come in. Counseling is where you can discuss your feelings and future. We help you find the value in your future, present and how you can find acceptance no matter what stage you’re at.

Compassionate Guidance at Every Stage of a Divorce

We are well aware that not every relationship aligns with the heterosexual norm. If this is true for you, then you’re likely facing individual difficulties that others might seem to not understand. It’s one thing to rant to your friend, but an entirely different thing to talk to someone with clinical training who truly gets what you’re going through and can offer solutions for processing it.

Divorce can understandably be a significant source of anxiety. Maybe you’re in the middle of a toxic divorce and you’re afraid of losing your financial support. If you have kids, you undoubtedly are worried about your visitation rights and the role you’ll play when you and your partner are separated. Or maybe the divorce is over and you’re left contending with the outcome. Regardless of what your exact situation looks like, you’ll find a way forward through therapy.

Our office is your safe place, an environment where you can freely discuss your concerns without judgment. Not every divorce is the same for everyone, so don’t feel like you have to put yourself in a box to manage your emotions in any given way. We help you see a new perspective. You’ll have the opportunity to rediscover your values, reaffirm what’s most important to you and even have a fresh start.

Taking the next steps forward can feel impossible, but with our therapists at your side, you can become a person unlike you ever expected.

What Does Therapy for Divorce Look Like?

Simply put, therapy is different for every person. After all, you’re an individual. You are unlike anyone else, so naturally, your marriage and your feelings about your divorce are unique, too. Whether you’re mourning your marriage or you’re relieved it’s over, your feelings are valid.

We also know that no two family units are the same. Our therapists are trained in the dynamics of non-heterosexual and non-monogamous relationships, and we are kink and fetish informed. We’re here to help you process your emotions, and you don’t have to explain yourself to us.

Basically, we’re your greatest allies in coming to terms with your reality and finding ways to cope with your feelings. Divorce can bring about strong, often overwhelming emotions. You may feel like your future is empty or that you aren’t sure what to do with your newfound independence. Whether those emotions are positive, negative, or a complicated mix, therapy lets you examine them.

A few of the topics we often cover include:

  • Redefining your life as an individual
  • Learning to accept the divorce and move forward
  • Stresses related to childcare or parental alienation
  • Fears about not being able to financially support yourself
  • Dating after divorce or as a single parent
  • Mental health challenges
