Discernment counseling

Couples who are unsure if they want to stay together can benefit from discernment counseling. It is specifically for situations where one partner wants to leave the relationship, and the other wants to keep it going. Before deciding to repair or end a relationship, therapy seeks to assist partners in exploring all possible options. Discernment counseling can be seen as an evaluation procedure that aids partners in deciding how to proceed with their relationship.

This form of counseling differs from couples counseling, where the goal is to assess whether any problems can be resolved rather than to resolve interpersonal issues and improve communication. A discernment counselor may spend more time with each person alone rather than together, and the length of treatment is brief, lasting anywhere between one and five sessions. Counseling assists both partners in understanding how they influence relationship problems and then determining if there are viable solutions.

Lack of discernment

Surprisingly, many people get married with little discernment, and the decision to form a union is often made based on fantastical ideas rather than realistic expectations and desires. This contributes to high divorce rates. Additionally, having discernment is being able to read and understand other people’s needs, especially those of a romantic partner.

But when one person repeatedly makes impulsive, poor decisions without giving thought to the polarization it fosters, it is a lack of discernment that can lead to problems in the relationship. Attributes of discernment include having the mental capacity to make decisions based on acute observation and insight.

How discernment counseling for couples helps

How discernment counseling for couples can help?

Discernment counseling for couples aims to help partners sort through their feelings and thoughts to gain clarity and confidence to make the best choice for their family and themselves. Deciding to divorce or attempting to reconcile through couples therapy are all potential outcomes. It is also crucial to comprehend the dynamics of divorce and co-parenting because it can impact how well the children adjust to the divorce.

Many couples choose discernment counseling because it can help reach an agreeable solution for those with conflicting thoughts on divorce or reconciliation. A discernment counselor does not decide whether a couple should stay married or not for them; rather, they assist the couple in gaining a solid perspective so they can make their own decision. This is achieved by understanding each other’s perspective on the state of the marriage and opinions on divorce.

Discernment counseling can enable healthier communication during and after divorce if the couple ultimately decides to separate.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
