Mediation:  As a Child Custody Recommending CounselorI provide  mediation services to assist parents in coming to agreements concerning your children.  In areas where there is no agreement, I am mandated to submit formal recommendations to the Court for a parenting plan that I believe is in the best interests of your children

Child Custody Evaluation:  I conduct 3111 Child Custody Evaluations, an intensive study of your family's unique circumstances, with the goal of providing comprehensive recommendations for custody and visitation, and a detailed parenting plan including recommendations for services such as counseling and rehabilitation.   3111 Evaluations typically include interviews with parents and children, home visits, review of documents and interviews with collateral sources.

Reunification Therapy:  Reunification Counseling addresses parent child contact problems by working with the whole family, with the goal of rebuilding a troubled parent-child relationship.
