What type of divorcee are you? The answer could help you avoid decades of unnecessary stress. Do you thrive with well-defined boundaries, and enjoy routine and structure? If so, pursuing well-defined parameters for your settlement, and re-writing formal agreements whenever circumstances change will keep emotions stable. Or, do you like to “take things as they come”, adjusting and adapting to circumstances on the fly? Odds are good that, like most of us, you fall somewhere in the middle. Calibrating your divorce plan to fit your personality is a vital component of living the divorced life. The good news is that this can be done any time. At Sunstone Counseling, we help divorcees ensure their divorce plans respect and honor their emotional needs. Adapting to the changing circumstances of Covid-19, we are offering online Men’s and Women’s divorce/separation support groups to help our clients achieve this goal. Let us know how we can support you during this time of adjusting to a "new normal”.

As responders, operating at the heightened level of awareness and vigilance is a “norm”, it is part of the job and calling. While things are exasperated by the pandemic, physiological responses happen, and emotions and feelings add up. We need a transition from our work world into one of respite, even if in small doses, in order to keep moving through this time. We will make room for feelings that have been set aside during shift and introduce applicable skills in the now. This group will provide a community of understanding and get right to the point with practicing an in-session exercise that can assist with respite for body/mind/soul right now. Please reach out to Natalie directly in order to complete registration prior to start date.

Welcome ( Washington D.C. - USA )
Today is our graduate intern first day seeing clients. Please share her information.
I just finished this new book for the broken and brokenhearted titled "Perfect Love". Althought small in size and a quick read, it is packed with the power of Jesus. I believe Christians need the encouragement that is in this book. I encourage you to read my book and if so led, please tell others who may benefit. Be blessed! https://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Love-Battle-Broken-Brokenhearted/dp/1945698411/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1515511290&sr=8-1&keywords=perfect+love
