Collaborative Divorce is non-adversarial, out of court process that offers divorcing couples the opportunity to maintain control over the restructuring of their family.  In Collaborative Divorce spouses hire specially trained attorneys who are committed to helping the couple find mutually agreeable solutions to the challenges they face.  The couple also has the option to hire mental health and financial professionals, who are similarly dedicated to helping them to identify and accomplish their goals.  The process is based on transparency, compromise, cooperation, compassion,  integrity, and a commitment to stay out of court.

A collaboratively trained mental health professional can serve one of two potential roles on your Collaborative team, that of Collaborative Coach or Child Specialist.  Click on the links below to learn more:
