Navigating the divorce process - An impartial professional can help to anticipate emotional & legal difficulties, and to preserve stability and rational thinking.
Developing an effective co-parenting relationship - Most divorcing or divorced parents need assistance re-focusing their relationship from marital to parenting issues. It can be very difficult to develop a constructive co-parent process in which child-related information can be shared and decisions made jointly.
Adjusting to unanticipated events - Otherwise ‘good’ divorces can run into difficulty down the road as children become older, new partners enter the picture, one’s financial status changes, or other unplanned events occur.
Rebalancing families - Families shape themselves in response to internal changes and external pressures but from time-to-time encounter unmanageable situations.
Re-establishing children’s development - Children may be de-railed for a myriad of reasons resulting in oppositional behavior, poor performance, low self-esteem, undesirable peer choices, or unsafe behaviors.
