Going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult experiences we can have as a parent. For the last ten years, I have focused my work as a Collaborative Coach and Mediator on providing assistance to couples who are considering or pursuing a divorce. My first exposure to Collaborative Law was when I chose the process myself in 1997. I chose Collaborative Law because one of my biggest priorities was to prevent my children from experiencing undue harm from the divorce, and more importantly, have the chance to grow up happy and successfully, even though their parents chose to divorce and live in seperate homes. I know that when I meet my clients, they are experiencing a wide range of emotions and have great concern for their children and themselves. I know that their communication with their spouse is likely at a low point and the frustration level and fear of the future at a high point. My goal in working as a Collaborative Coach is to provide parents information, support and assistance with communication as co-parents for your children. As you work through the difficult terrain of transitioning and changing your family, you can successfully raise your children with two parents and two homes. Divorce is not easy, but choosing to work with one another as co-parents, instead of working against each other, can offer you, your spouse and your children the possibility of a future that you can feel proud of because of the choices that you made during your divorce and the years to follow. One of my areas of expertise is the parenting relationship. Learning to be an effective parent during and after a divorce can be one of the anchors of a family’s success for their future. My work as a Mediator allows me the chance to work with couples during and/or after their divorce to provide assistance in finding answers and solutions to the issues related to parenting, communication and divorce. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have about Collaborative Coaching or Mediation and how my services can meet your needs.
