She is diligent about finding you answers, preparing you for the next steps, setting the tempo of the team, and keeping the dialog constructive.

Each of parties has his/her own attorney who is committing to not posturing and not being antagonistic. These attorneys have been trained to see the "bigger picture" and focus on the best outcome for the family. They also help the clients understand the role of the law in this process.
The financial expert will work with couple to identify & confirm all the family's assets. This individual is neutral, is trained to understand the needs of the family and to present to the divorcing couple various ideas to best divide up the family assets, based on their identified cares and interests.
This communications specialist/ family coach is licensed as a mental health practitioner and specializes in family relationships. This individual is neutral and will help you to talk better with each other. The Coach also keeps the process moving forward and works with individuals and the parties together to create a safe place to explore the best way to move into the future.
Because we promote a "team effort," the couple gets the best possible support. During this difficult time, emotions get big and often there are confusing messages. The Divorce Coach is there to speak on the phone with you, to see you individually or together as needed. You may also email or text. The Family Coach holds the responsibility of assisting the team and assisting the couple to continue to move forward in a way that works for the couple.
AS A NEUTRAL FAMILY COACH
I help the divorcing couple navigate through
the emotional process. I help to identify,
negotiate, and communicate the EMOTIONAL
concerns during the divorce process and
assist both in creating a parenting plan that
may even include helping the couple talk
with their children about the divorce.
This is not therapy. We will not "go deep,"
and this is not long-term. This does not
replace the support of therapy.
