Whenever I meet someone new and tell them I am a divorce mediator their noses wrinkle up like they smell something bad! Why would you want to do that? Is often the first thing they ask.
The Answer: I know that what I do makes a difference!
Divorce is one of the most painful things anyone will ever experience, our dreams for our future are shattered. No matter what the cause, no one escapes unscathed. But there can be happiness and success after divorce. The speed at which you will find a new normal is directly tied to how much conflict there is in your divorce.
Research has found that it is the level of conflict between parents in divorce which indicates the level of trauma experienced by children. By reducing conflict through mediation I help couples co-create a new normal, by tailoring a parenting plan that reflects the unique needs of their children, and child support and separation agreements which maximizes the parents' resources.
I was the child in a high conflict divorce and I have been divorced. I know first hand how damaging divorce can be for children and how difficult it is as a parent to maintain cooperative respectful parenting when divorcing in a legal system which pits parents against each other.
Mediation offers a better way!
