MARRIAGE COUNSELING, DIVORCE COUNSELING AND
CO-PARENTING EDUCATION IN GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA
“How do I know I need help?”
Signs of distress are not always obvious. Some distress signals to look out for are:
- ■ Persistent feelings of dissatisfaction
- ■ Problems with child’s behaviors, school adjustment
- ■ Sexual concerns
- ■ Unexplained fatigue or difficulty sleeping
- ■ Difficulties in talking with your fiancé, spouse, children, parents, other family members, friends or coworkers
- ■ Feelings of loneliness, moodiness, depression, sadness, anxiety, or stress
- ■ Family stress
- ■ Problems with alcohol and drugs
- ■ Frequent financial difficulties
- ■ Difficulty in setting or reaching goals
- ■ Drastic weight fluctuations
- ■ Work difficulties, frequent job changes, problems with coworkers
- ■ Difficulties with anger, hostility or violence
“What if we’re not “sick” or “crazy” but have ordinary problems like everybody else…problems we do not think are serious enough to need therapy?”
The idea that only those with a mental illness can benefit from marriage and family therapy or psychotherapy is a myth. All of our transitions are a series of normal and expected developmental life stages, each posing challenges. Change, stress and problems can be expected in any relationship and therapy can help to prevent small problems from becoming serious.
