I have worked with families and children involved in divorce parenting issues for 34 years and have worked with over 3,000 families involved in high conflict custody disputes as a mediator, co-parenting counselor, parenting coordinator, reunification counselor and Guardian ad Litem.
Are you at your wit's end trying to communicate with your ex. Are your kids constantly exposed to conflict between the two of you. Co-parenting after divorce can be difficult. Separating personal issues from parenting issues is a skill that parents find challenging. Co-parenting counseling is an opportunity to discuss problematic issues in a non-threatening environment with help from someone experienced in facilitating communication with divorce issues. You can learn to focus on parenting concerns without the intrusion of past relationship problems. Parents find that it is possible to resolve tough issues without court intervention.

Being also a Certified Mediator, one of my specialties is working with relationships of all make-up and ages: Pre-marital, Marriage and Divorce issues, Parenting and Co-parenting concerns, Parent-Teen issues, Life Coaching, and helping individuals or entire families navigate the emotional challenges of "Change" in their lives.
Does your life or relationship need a major overhaul or maybe just a "tune up"? I can help you with either. Having successfully worked with a broad range of client issues from families in transition or conflict, to individuals with severe trauma and depression, I have been exposed to enough that nothing you tell me will shock me. I will not judge you. Often it is our unconscious patterns and life stories that influence the way we feel, think and behave. I can help you understand "why" so that you can change and feel better.... or perhaps gain the tools needed to ask someone else to change.

At the core of my treatment philosophy is the belief that families heal when movement occurs and people begin to unlock their potential and capacity for growth. Often there is underlying pain and/or trauma that needs to be addressed in order for the system to recover and break the cycle. Whether the results of the family dysfunction is abuse, addiction, estrangement, divorce, suicide, broken communication paths, or some other behavior, treatment can provide relief.

My approach to counseling is to focus on strengths and help to assist with solutions rather than telling my patients what to do. My focus is to address short-term problems as well as long-term psychological well-being. The more you can tell me about what and how you are feeling, the more effectively I will be able to assist you in resolving your personal problems and issues. I believe all individuals are deserving of acceptance, respect, compassion, and understanding, and all children are capable of success in academics, extracurricular activities, and social interactions.

Have you recently experienced the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage or relationship, or a significant life transition that has you wondering how life will ever feel normal again? Grief shows up in many ways in life, and it looks different for everyone. But one thing is always true: grief changes us. Maybe you’re in survival mode: fighting just to stay above water in the day to day. Or perhaps you feel like you don’t recognize yourself: more angry, less motivated, or experiencing emotions that feel completely foreign. Your grief may be so overwhelming that you don’t even know what you feel.

Have you been impacted by problematic relationships, infidelity, or sex addiction? You might feel lost, betrayed, and alone. Do you ask yourself, "How do I keep ending up in these relationships?". Are you afraid to be alone even when your partner is clearly unhealthy? Core beliefs are the foundation of our being but when they cause us pain, embarrassment, and shame we can become depressed, anxious, fake, and withdrawn. Do you compare yourself to others (I call this Comparanoia)? Do you tell yourself “I am stupid”, “I am worthless”, or “I am not good enough”? If so, then your core beliefs may be contributing to your pain today.

Sometimes difficulties have been present since childhood, left unattended or pushed down repeatedly over the years. Some clients come to counseling seeking ways to deal with a specific trauma, domestic violence, grief, loss, anger, or other distressing emotions, leaving someone feeling isolated, stuck, and without resources.

Divorce Therapists
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce therapist in Gig Harbor can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
