I am drawn to the collaborative divorce model as a holistic problem solving approach that is family centered with a final goal of respectful resolution. Each family is unique. With the support and assistance of the trained collaborative professionals, clients have the opportunity to be creative in generating a unique and mutually acceptable agreement. The collaborative approach encourages healthier post-divorce relationships and assists families with children in co-parenting.
The role of divorce coach is to help guide the process for the individuals and the team. I meet with clients individually and together to identify needs and address problems as they develop. I also work with the other professionals on the team to help support the process. I encourage curiosity and problem solving as well as empathy and respect throughout the process.
In my clinical practice I work with individuals and couples dealing with life transitions, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, illness and grief. As a seasoned therapist, I am keenly aware of the warning signs and triggers that can develop in stressful situations. Identifying and exploring the source of emotions often leads to healing.
