The Benefits of Professional Counseling

Salli's Divorce Support Blog

Over the course of my challenging marriage I sought support through LDS Social Services and found that it helped a lot. Did it solve my marital troubles? Personally, no; mostly due to the fact that I was the only person in my marriage union that sought counseling.

But what support I accessed helped me keep my nose above water and allowed me to navigate the narrow rapids of my troubled marriage union.

After divorce, while I was a single lady, seeking guidance from a professional divorce counselor was truly a lifesaver. It gave me the opportunity to express every last frustrating, hurtful, frightening thought and concern, related to my marriage and divorce, in an environment that was safe and private. In releasing those feelings I was then freed-up to heal and move on in my life faster than I would have healed otherwise.

Now, I am blessed and fortunate to have my own in-house counselor! My husband! He's not a psychotherapist by trade, but--to me--he is more patient and supporting than a paid professional ever could be. Because he loves me! My Sunny Dawns began the day I met him.

I hope the same for you someday! Keep your eye on that prize and continue moving forward.
