Family Mediation

Our mediation is a softer, gentler approach for establishing a Parenting Plan.  In mediation, you and your child’s other parent will work out the details of your co-parenting plan – taking into consideration the needs and best interest of your children.

Co-parent Coaching

Through a series of one-on-one sessions we will establish your Action Plan to set  boundaries for navigating the challenges of co-parenting.  Grow and support your child’s Peaceful Journey into their new normal.

Working With Denise

My simple belief is that your family issues don’t belong in family court – they belong at the kitchen table. 

Let’s navigate the minefield, mystery, and magic of co-parenting because your kids deserve a quirky, curious, and peaceful childhood. 

Think about what you want your child’s future to look like and we can make a plan to guide their way. This is what it really means to root for your child!

the parenting plan

The goal of mediation is for co-parents to agree upon a formal Parenting Plan that gives them a blueprint for decision-making regarding their children.  A Parenting Plan is a legal, binding document.  You do not need a lawyer to create a Parenting Plan and will save both time and money by using our professional mediation services to come to an agreement.
