Kristen P Craren, PLPC, MEd, NBCC in Maryland Heights
What can you do? Separate, divorce, go to counseling? Solutions seem to evade you, but you keep going because of the kids. Maybe it will get better after they are older? Or maybe if you wait to divorce after they are in high school, it won't scar them as much? Your heart is in the right place. You are thinking about the welfare of your children. But if feels like the only way out of the problem is exiting the marriage.
Somewhere inside there is a little spark of hope, but you need help. What's the next step? Good news: There is hope for a more positive future. You just need a new formula, a new approach.
People like you seek out a therapist to find a new way of thinking and perceiving every day. This is the essence of counseling. It is all a choice; you can decide if you are ready and willing to transform your life. It is in you, we will find it. Call me now!
