Should I go to see the marriage counselor for individual therapy?

When you need a therapist

If you find that you need a therapist, find one that has no history with your ex, your children, or anyone who will be involved with your divorce. Do not allow yourself to go to your old marriage counsellor, or allow the children to also be seen by your therapist. You want and need a person who is just there for you, nobody else.

How do I improve my emotional health?

Talking it out

Whether you talk to your minister or a certified
counselor, talk to someone. It's a crazy time right
now, and there's just no substitute for sorting things
out with someone you can trust. Contact your local
mental health agency, your minister, your primary
care physician, or a friend to get the name of a good
therapist. If you don't connect with this person, try someone else. It's worth the effort to connect with someone you like and can trust. They can help!
