Sometimes, relationships reach a level where partners feel it is best to go their separate ways. This is a personal choice and in therapy, we explore this decision carefully. As your therapist, I honor your ultimate decision as you are the experts in your own lives. My role is to help explore for solutions with partners who are hoping to stay together or explore options for other couples who want to determine if separating is the right decision for them. For those who are going through divorce, are already divorced, or beginning the process, I offer either individual counseling to individual partners or couple's counseling and co-parent counseling to families to help them navigate the transition in the most positive way.

In my experience of couples with children, counseling is essential to helping families heal more quickly from divorce and lessens the destructive damage that can be done during and after the process. I believe families can absolutely move forward positively and go through these adjustments successfully, but having the right foundation for co-parenting is a critical piece of this. In therapy, we work together to create a plan for healing, moving through your process with integrity, and constructing a co-parenting foundation from which you can build a healthy new relationship.
Leading and current research shows that a healthy co-parenting foundation provides a platform for children to thrive and adjust, even becoming more resilient in the world around them. For parents, each is able to build their lives independently and navigate the waters of single parenting as well as move on with their lives in other contexts. Many families will eventually also face the unique challenges of blending families and re-marriage. While this may seem far off, these challenges are far less complicated and easy to get through when a healthy foundation is in place. Together, we work through issues and find solutions that get your family on the road to building successful experiences even if the circumstances seem less than ideal...step by step, one day at a time.
My fee for Divorce Prevention, Contemplation, or Navigation is $145/hr. Please understand that there is a full session charge for appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice. Thank you for your understanding.
