Discernment Counseling

Discernment Counseling is a unique process. This is for couples where one partner is seriously leaning out of the relationship, and the other partner is leaning in. The couple is not ready to separate, but the idea of couples therapy right now seems daunting to the leaning out partner, or like it will take an impossible about of energy.

Discernment Counseling is 1-5 sessions only. An 80 minute session is split in half between each partner. This is different than couples therapy, where the goal is to work on issues between the couple. In Discernment Counseling, I spend the time exploring and coaching with each partner to see which path is right for them:

1. Staying together, committing to 6 months of couples therapy

2. Separating, and beginning the separation process

3. Staying together and not working on the relationship - things stay as they are
