Family Specialist Divorce Coach Mediation
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
As a Family Specialist, I support couples in the drafting of age-appropriate parenting plan and communication plans. As a Family Specialist, I assist the children and their families in addressing the needs that arise as the family restructures from a family living in one home, to a family living in two homes. I meet with parents to obtain developmental information, identify family strengths and growth areas, and set goals for the children’s needs in the process. I can also meet with the children to assess their hopes and needs for the future. Together, both parents and I develop detailed plans for child transitions, on-duty and off-duty parenting time, parenting philosophies and much more. As a Divorce Coach, I can help guide couples through this process by helping them get the most value out of the professionals they work with. I also help couples address the underlying emotional or psychological issues which will help them achieve a deeper resolution and long-term success. I assist couples by developing effective communication skills and techniques to reduce anxiety so they can express creative solutions and make informed decisions about their future.
