I am a Collaborative Divorce Coach and Mediator. I work as a consultant to couples seeking to learn more about the divorce processes available to them. On a Collaborative Team, I participate as a coach to one or both of the divorcing parties. As a coach I help my clients prepare for the Collaborative process and manage the complex emotions that arise in them during the divorce. My goal is not to become my clients therapist. I work with my clients to help them discover the best possible solutions for their particular marital problems and to form a post-divorce plan that will best satisfy the needs of their family members under their current circumstances.
