At best, divorce is difficult. To make it worse, courtroom battles can linger and escalate leaving both parties bitter, exhausted and without a desirable resolution. When opposing points of view collide and respectful communications fall apart it is impossible to reach a mutually acceptable settlement and the process can become a basic sharing of assets.

The family is skillfully supported through the process of communication in order to problem solve and reach positive resolutions to difficult issues.
