Recovering from Divorce Reclaiming Your Self

For everyone.

Divorce is one of the few stresses that can impact almost every area of your life. This program for people who are divorced, or are in pain from the end of a primary romantic relationship, brings together two psychologists who specialize in helping people recover from the impact of divorce. Learn how combining mental health practices with mindful movement, journaling, yoga nidra, and soulful music can help you open to pain, find resilience, and develop a sense of healing and stability.

Move forward with a healthier narrative as you learn

  • Why divorce brings with it so many different types of stress
  • How to shift from being trapped in a dance of conflict with your former partner to focusing more exclusively on your children and your own recovery
  • Strategies of resilience, and how writing, movement, and music can become part of your recovery toolbox.

In a supportive and understanding environment, take this opportunity to turn the page and create a healthier post-divorce life story.
