When I was asked to participate in a local collaborative practice group almost 5 years ago now, accepting the invitation was a perfect choice. The collaborative mental health training and clinical application requires a maturity of mind and spirit for which this phase in my career is perfectly suited. Since devoting thirty years to relationship issues: individual, couple, family and group, now it was time to look at separation and divorce as a potentially positive transformation of self, if handled correctly.
I serve on several committees with my overriding commitment to services, ethics, standards and protocols as your collaborative practitioner. As a matter of good and current practice standards I attend workshops across the country meeting and accumulating mentor relationships with the most seasoned professionals.
Forwarding the collaborative approach by sharing, promoting and exchanging new ideas and configurations of practice is my passion. Affording couples of all economic strata the means to uncouple without using their children’s college funds, overloading themselves with years of credit card debt, or tapping into their retirement funds by ‘unbundling’ services, is a significant alternative to current ideologies and practice. That is not to say, to skimp on services. Building ‘Bundling Packages’ for your unique circumstances is done only after a thorough evaluation of your needs. Consider the options in buying a car and which vehicle is in your price range and comfort level.
Having said all of this and educated you through all of your options, I believe you have the sense of my commitment to your well-being and that of your family throughout the uncoupling process. This crisis of transition cannot be successfully navigated without an experienced mental health practitioner serving as your anchor and guide. It is by far the best value package for your investment into the next chapter of your life.
Whether you come to me in therapy, as your divorce coach or as your mediator, you have my commitment to work with you as hard as you are willing to work on yourself. I might add that the hard work or life practice never ends if we are attempting to live to our fullest potential. We can see ourselves most fully in every relationship we create; we can see our regrets and triumphs, doubts and fears, motivations and intentions.
