Getting SplitReady Episode 18.5: Look Before You Leap – The Benefits of Pre-Divorce Counseling

“An ounce of prevention” is especially relevant when it comes to marriage and divorce. Many couples have the basis of a strong relationship, but they let the challenges of life, marriage and parenthood create wedges that ultimately doom their marriage. In some cases, a little outside help could have patched these cracks and saved the family.

Join us for an engaging discussion with Pamela Rak, LSCW, PC on how counseling can benefit a struggling marriage and keep it from becoming a divorce.

Also joining the conversation are Amy Schillinger from Balance Stress Management and Therapy and Jessica Malmquist from Greenwich Law Group LLC.
