Are You Disconnected From Your Partner & Considering Divorce? Couple Therapy, Glendora, La Verne, CA

Therapy, Counseling After an Affair

Reading books about relationships helps you to grow as a couple

If you’ve been unhappy in your marriage and feel disconnected from your partner for a long time then it is quite possible that you are considering getting divorced.

As a marriage and family therapist, my hope is that this would only be a last resort; especially when there are children involved.


1. Deciding to divorce is a very difficult and life altering decision and that’s why I recommend you read the book Contemplating Divorce: A Step-by-Step Guide t…

It asks the question why and suggests ways to make it work should you decide to stay. It’s an easy read and can be found at, even in Kindle version.

2. I wouldn’t suggest you make such a big decision that may effect the lives of many without reading up on the topic. It may help you to reach a conclusion about you marriage.

3. Another helpful step is to schedule an appointment with couple’s therapist, Ilissa Banhazl, MFT in Glendora, CA. A therapist is trained to help you make to make this kind of decision. Would it be helpful to have some professional guidance? And, if you should decide to stay and work on your relationship, she can give you the tools to do that.

You may have been unhappy in your marriage for a long time and didn’t know what to do. I hope this direction has been helpful…
