Support Matters

Because sometimes you need support to manage crisis and transition as peacefully and productively as possible.

Collaborative Divorce: Neutal Facilitator + Mediation

Collaborative Divorce is a peaceful process to resolve divorce. The Collaborative Divorce Process engages a professional team consisting of a lawyer for each spouse, plus a neutral facilitator to help you in making the best decisions about your future, as well as retain control over your divorce and other family matters. This process helps you keep your dispute private, and plan a better future for your re-structured family without battling each other in court.  

A Collaborative Neutral Facilitator is a neutral professional in a collaborative divorce. He or she is oftentimes utilized as a team leader and communication specialist within the collaborative family law process. He or she generally has a background in family dynamics, childhood development, and/or conflict management.

Mediation is a private, confidential, and voluntary process whereby a neutral third party assists people in conflict in settling  the issues between them without having to go through the lengthy and often costly court process. Parties are usually ordered by the Court to attempt to mediate their differences before scheduling a hearing.  By fully engaging in the process, parties retain control and are often able to identify creative and flexible solutions, which would not be available to them through the courts. The mediated settlement agreement is then incorporated into a court order.  (Chapter 61.183, Florida Statutes)



Parenting Coordination

Parenting Coordination is a process where an impartial third party has an ongoing relationship with the parties in order to assist them in interpreting and implementing their parenting plan. This process can be voluntary or court-ordered. The PC can make recommendations to the parties, and with prior approval of the parties and the court, make decisions within the scope of the court order of appointment and the parenting plan.  The Parenting Coordinator cannot effectuate a change in the  parenting plan without both parties' consent.  (Chapter 61.125, Florida Statutes)​​​

Individual + Family Counseling + Marriage Counseling

Counseling is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education and career goals. Counseling is the process whereby specially trained individuals work with others individually, in families and/or in groups to address and work to resolve personal and interpersonal issues by using active listening, goal setting and behavior change, and by teaching new skills and problem-solving. 

Marriage Counseling is a voluntary process that focuses on helping the couple to develop a shared meaning and intimacy, improving communication, and learning better conflict resolution strategies.

   "Counselors use professional knowledge and skills to assist people who are experiencing life changes."  

Coaching: Individual, Parenting, Co-Parenting 

Individual, Parenting, and Co-Parenting Coaching is voluntary coaching process that focuses on effective communication, the development of stress management tools, effective parenting strategies and skills, as well as effective conflict resolution skills to help individuals and families navigate the life's transitions. It is goal-oriented and aimed at assisting individual's and parents to expand their awareness, understanding, and knowledge. ​

Coaching is not therapy; it is not designed to work through “issues” or focus on diagnosed mental health illnesses. Rather, coaching emphasizes building on existing strengths and implementing new skills while encouraging mutual respect and family harmony.
