Seattle Collaborative Divorce Professionals
Bellevue, Washington 98004
Profession(s)Mental Health Professional, Lawyer, Mediator
As Abigail Trafford says in her classic Crazy Time, divorce is a 'savage emotional journey.' It certainly is a 'process' with a beginning, middle and, hopefully, conclusion. People, if supported, can emerge from this very challenging life journey ready to recommit, both to themselves and to another intimate partner...and most certainly to their children. However, the wounds that can be inflicted in the course of an adversarial divorce will preoccupy the wounded and forestall that recovery perhaps for years if not perpetually. As a lawyer and marriage and family therapist it is my professional calling to support and assist people through this process so that they can emerge whole and with their self respect and integrity intact.
