Helping divorcing parents transform their relationship from adversary to ally.
No matter what divorcing parents think of each other, they’ll have to figure out how to co-parent their children.
Transformative Divorce Mediation can help that journey begin. Instead of simply seeking settlement, transformative mediation seeks to change the way partners interact, as well as how they perceive and handle conflict.
This approach sets them up to handle the compromises they will need to make while co-parenting for years to come.
Why a therapist makes a better mediator.
People divorce because something isn’t working, and hope has been lost.
These are the very issues a trained counselor deals with on a daily basis. Having an understanding of psychology, communication, and the advanced skills in reading body and facial language give a counselor a distinct advantage in mediation.
If you think mental health issues may play a part in the dissolution, a trained counselor may be the best option. Mediation training is great, but it doesn’t supply the tools or experience for dealing with volatile people at their worst.
Why this therapist?
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), as well as a trained mediator and a member of the Cincinnati Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
I have experience in working with children, families, and divorcing parents. My end goal is to give children the best chance of having a stable home life, regardless of how and where their time is split.
This is only possible if parents have a positive co-parenting relationship and become partners in the business of raising their kids.
If all this sounds like the kind of success you’d like to set your clients up for, please give me a call at (513) 463-6339.
