Family Journey Mediation

Creating Pathways Through Separation and Divorce

Helping families navigate the minefields, mystery, and magic of co-parenting through separation and divorce.



Your Child’s CoParenting Rules is a 2.5 hour workshop focusing on the impact of separation and divorce on children. Topics include the emotional stages of divorce for children, parallel parenting and communication tools for co-parents. The class ends with a letter to mommy and daddy: your child’s co-parenting rules.


Mediation is a softer, gentler approach to creating a parenting agreement—a plan for how you and your co-parent will work together to raise your children. Under the Parent Place of Springfield, Denise has been approved by twenty-twenty-three Illinois counties to help parents.
