I work with individuals and families during and after divorce

Divorce is terribly hard. But there is good news: no matter how bleak your situation feels, you can thrive on the other side. Since 2004, I've been helping families and individuals successfully navigate divorce. Relationships are my highest priority – I provide a warm, safe, and supportive environment so we can work together as a team to achieve your goals.

My Services

I can help you through every step along the way

Since every divorce situation is unique, I believe there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, I work with clients to define their needs and form a plan that works for them. This collaboration is key to success. The services listed below are intended to give an idea of what our sessions might involve, but the plan and approach will vary depending on your family's situation.

Therapy

I collaborate with my clients to assess their goals and maintain an open dialogue while we work together to achieve them. I generally use a systems theory, solution-focused, cognitive behavioral approach, but the process always adapts to the needs of the client. Sessions may include the whole family, the child, the couple, or the individual.

Child Development

Development is not linear – children grow and change at different paces. Often, children regress when faced with changes in their lives. I assess children’s development and work with parents to help them understand their child’s needs. I am also available for expert testimony on child development.

Collaborative Divorce

I have advanced training in Interest Based Negotiation and as a Collaborative Divorce Coach and Child Specialist. With the help of a collaborative team, I help families amicably work through creating the best settlement for the family.

Reunification Therapy

When a parent loses contact with a child for any reason the court may order reunification therapy. In this form of family therapy, I work with the children and parents on healing relationships in the family system.

Parenting Plan

Whether working with partners individually or with an attorney in the mediation process, I help parents create a parenting plan or time-sharing agreement that is specialized for the family’s needs.

Parenting Coordination

As a parenting coordinator, I have a neutral role with the goal of facilitating communication with parents, mediating disputes, decreasing conflict, crafting a parenting plan, and educating families. I work with clients (and if necessary, their attorneys) to define the scope of my role as parenting coordinator to meet the needs of the family. 

Co-Parenting Counseling

I work with parent partners to put their anger and hurt aside and move forward in an amicable way for their children. The focus of co-parent counseling is to improve communication, reduce conflict, and implement parenting strategies specific for your children and family.

Attorney Collaboration

If necessary, I work with clients’ attorneys in a consultation role during litigation – doing evaluations, expert witness testimony, and legal consulting. I am an expert in child development, parenting during and after divorce, and counseling. If needed, I evaluate parents and children to write reports and testify.

Therapeutic Visitation

I provide a safe and appropriate environment for children to visit with a parent that requires supervision. I also provide constructive criticism as well as appropriate parenting strategies to the supervised parent.

Divorce Coaching

I help navigate the confusing and scary process of divorce as well as the dynamics of parenting post divorce.  We will work together to sort through specific issues and brainstorm solutions that are specific to you and your family’s needs.
