As difficult as is this work, I get great satisfaction in helping couples "uncouple securely", and helping families collaboratively & respectfully reorganize, repair differences, and move on with their lives. Note: I've written several book chapters, and papers, on how to reach "resolution" in the separation/divorce process. I'll gladly send reading material to you: just contact me at
