Co-parenting Counseling is the use of a neutral third party to assist parents with the continued job of raising their children after divorce.   Two essential tasks that coparents may struggle with are exchanging information and making decisions.    I will help you to structure these responsibilities in a manner best suited to your specific situation and needs of your child/ren. 

When you realize that by changing your perspective, big things can be seen as little things, it becomes much harder to worry about anything.

Family and divorce mediation is a process in which an impartial third party facilitates the resolution of family disputes by promoting the participants voluntary agreement.  I assist with communication, encourage understanding and focus parents on their individual and common interests.  Together we will explore options to make decisions and reach your own agreements.

Collaborative divorce is an amicable approach that focuses on the needs of the family. The couple agrees to take litigation off the table to resolve their own disputes in an open and respectful manner with the guidance of professionals. As a Collaborative Communication Specialist I offer Coaching for spouses engaged in the Collaborative divorce process, as well as Child Specialist or "Kid Coaching"  to bring the children's voices into the divorce process.   See www.nocourt.org for more information about Collaborative Divorce.

 

I work primarily with adolescents individually who are experiencing conflict with their parents and/or whose parents are going through a divorce. 

I work with couples to help them achieve greater understanding, connection, and intimacy.

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
