I provide services as a Child Specialist on a Collaborative Divorce team. Collaborative Divorce is a newer model for the separation and divorce process which provides a divorcing couple with a team comprised of attorneys, mental health professionals in the role of coaches and child specialists, and financial experts. The Collaborative Divorce model promotes a respectful and collaborative, non-adversarial approach to the divorce process, which prioritizes the emotional well-being of the children and family. I am a member of the District of Columbia Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
As a child specialist on the Collaborative Divorce team, I am dedicated to providing parents with a clear understanding of their child’s emotional concerns and developmental needs, to enable parents to most effectively support their children and teenagers through the separation and divorce process. I work carefully with children and teenagers to create a comfortable atmosphere in which a child or teen can express him/herself in the manner, and at the pace, which best suits each individual child or teenager. I am dedicated to working collaboratively with respect and care for my clients, with the aim of strengthening families, at all stages of the separation and divorce process. I believe that the Collaborative Divorce model provides the best opportunity to address a child or teen’s best interests and to promote emotional resiliency for the children and family.
