How can I help during your collaborative divorce?
Keeping communication open and honest is my primary objective as I meet with you and your spouse during a collaborative divorce. While we’re together, we focus on setting goals, problem solving, navigating emotions and developing strategies for healthy interactions.
Here are a few expectations you can have for our time together during your collaborative divorce:
- Improved communication through active listening and honest response.
- Development of amicable problem-solving skills for the divorce and beyond.
- Strategy and planning for a wide variety of circumstances which may arise while co-parenting.
- Neutral, third-party perspective while navigating complex issues of separation, co-parenting and emotional concerns.
Collaborative divorce allows you and your spouse an opportunity to seperate from one another while minimizing impact and chaos along the way. We will work on strategies and techniques for interaction that will benefit you both during the collaborative process, your interactions outside of the divorce and for your future involvement as co-parents.
