Dr. Jeff Gardere’s new smartphone application makes professional divorce advice affordable
Dr. Jeffrey Gardere, lecturer at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, offers help to those dealing with divorce with his new mobile app, The Healthy Divorce. The app is the first of its kind, allowing almost anyone to interact with a psychologist.
Psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Gardere, lecturer at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York and relationship counselor to the stars of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, today announced the launch of his Healthy Divorce App. The mobile application makes the lessons Dr. Gardere has learned from over a decade of helping individuals through every stage of the divorce process available to anyone with a mobile device. The application, which was developed by Rozilo, Inc., sells for $1.99 at the Apple App Store and is the first to offer mental health services to divorced (or divorcing) individuals through mobile technology.
“The number of divorces taking place on a daily basis in this country is staggering,”
The app focuses in large part on helping the user understand the different stages of the divorce process and the emotions associated with each of those stages. According to Gardere, this will allow users to understand what they are going through, to know what to expect in the future, and, “most importantly, that they are not alone in feeling the way they do.”
The Healthy Divorce App integrates a variety of media — text, audio, and video — created by Dr. Gardere to guide users through the divorce process. Dr. Gardere will write weekly articles to share his perspective on a variety of divorce-related topics. It also allows users to submit questions anonymously to Dr. Gardere, who will answer one inquiry daily and make both the question and his answer available to all the app’s users.
No other app dispenses professional advice for individuals experiencing a divorce. The app positions itself for success by allowing users to anonymously seek out help for feelings most people prefer to keep private. Rather than going to a friend or family member, which may be uncomfortable, the user can learn from — and even interact with — an experienced mental health professional in literally any setting they choose.
“The app will work in two ways: an individual may learn enough from the app itself to arm themselves with tools to cope with the divorce process in a constructive and healthy way; and the app may also work by showing the user that a mental health professional can be a valuable resource during this difficult time, ultimately convincing that individual to seek out the professional help he or she may need,” Dr. Gardere said.
