I am a divorced parent of two sons, now grown. So I have personal experience with co-parenting in all its challenges and rewards. I also know that going to court does little to improve the working relationship between co-parents.
Some years ago, I decided to change my career path: from lawyer to counselor, because I wanted to work with clients in a different way—one that reflects more of my values and life experience.
I am deeply interested in the roots of things—why we do the things we do. If we can understand what we and others are really seeking—usually love, acceptance, connection, feeling valuable as who we really are—then we can find ways to meet those needs and desires that benefit everybody. It just takes a little creativity.
