SERVICES Counselling, Mediation and Parenting Coordination
Individual counselling specializing in:

Family counselling including:

therapeutic re-integration work to repair rifts in children and parent relationships regardless of the reason
All my work is grounded in attachment theory, using various therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, inner child work, mindfulness, logotherapy and others; all evidence based theories and practices.
I work with parents to create a parenting plan, a written document outlining how you will parent your child after a separation/divorce. This document outlines all relevant issues such as custody, parenting time (access), holidays, school concerns, health matters, religious matters and much more. Working from a collaborative approach I assist parents to create a document that works for their family in a comfortable safe environment emphasizing the elimination of conflict, enhancement of communication and positive well-being of all children.
This special service is available to parents with a court order in place that find themselves in constant conflict. A parent co-ordinator offers a combination of coaching, counselling and arbitration services.
A parent co-ordinator is a neutral third party to whom parents can turn to resolve disputes in a timely manner.
At the same time, parents will learn communication and problem solving techniques to enable them to make these decisions themselves.
