Ending a Relationship

Ending a relationship with someone you love is a traumatizing experience.

You can’t just “get over” a breakup, or flip a switch and feel just fine when you’re going through a divorce. But you can heal and grow.

Grieving a Relationship

Our therapists specialize in helping people heal from heartbreak.

We know that time alone does not heal. We offer effective breakup therapy and divorce counseling to help you grieve and process your loss to heal fully and move forward.

Hope, Healing & Growth

With the right support, you can use this loss as a doorway to powerful personal growth.

Our evidence-based approach to divorce and breakup recovery allows you not just to let go of the past, but to build a bright new future.

Why Growing Self?

Working with a breakup counselor or divorce therapist at Growing Self is different. Our experts are not self-proclaimed “breakup coaches.” We are marriage and family therapists — true relationship specialists with advanced degrees and years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families build healthy relationships… and heal from heartbreak when their relationships cannot be repaired.

Furthermore, most therapists do not understand the biologically based nature of love and as a result, may not know how to help you move forward. Working with us is productive. We understand why you can’t stop thinking about your Ex, how to deal when your Ex moves on, what it’s like to be addicted to a toxic relationship, and how to achieve an amicable divorce.

We understand attachment trauma, and we understand the power of healing relationships. We’ve helped countless people heal, grow, and ultimately flourish in the aftermath of a painful breakup or divorce.

We can help you, too.
