My Approach to Helping

I am a compassionate and experienced therapist who has extensive knowledge and insight about many of the predictable aspects of the divorce process. I have worked with individuals, couples and families, providing practical solutions, guidance, and support to help successfully complete the divorce process with the best possible outcome for children and their parents. I offer individual counseling, co-parenting counseling, family mediation, and parenting consulting. As your divorce coach, I partner with you to help you take care of yourself, navigate the process, and be child-focused.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Considering or in the middle of separation or divorce? As Your Divorce Coach, I help you to:

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF:
I partner with you to separate emotions and to support good decision making for you and your children. This personalized approach to life transition facilitates positive changes you embark on your new chapter. By processing emotions and looking for the hidden lessons, we take the necessary steps to restore healthy functioning, plan for your future and help you to take care of yourself so you can take care of your children.

NAVIGATE THE PROCESS:
In our work together, I educate and familiarize you with the process so it becomes less intimidating and helps you be proactive instead of reactive. I coach and prepare you to get the most efficient use of your attorney, clarify options and take control of the process. Together we strategize to help you work toward your goals. As an experienced custody evaluator and trained mental health professional, I help prepare you for your custody or SENE evaluation, with the goal of rescuing anxiety, highlighting your strengths and effectively communicating any concerns you may have about the other parent.

BE CHILD FOCUSED:
How you as parents approach divorce impacts your children. I provide creative personalized solutions to guide you as you communicate, negotiate and compromise, and focus on your children's emotional well-being. This assists you in providing continuity of care for your children so that they get the best of what each parent has to offer them.
