Sad does not ever have to be "bad", and with every challenging situation, there is ALWAYS a blessing to be found.
Our Divorce Alternative Center will provide services to couples, children and families in the community as an alternative to using divorce attorneys as the only way to get through the dissolution of the marriage and the emotional process it creates. In some cases, these marriages may not even need to end if they are able to talk to the right professionals who, truly, have their best interest at heart.
The Center will have a variety of professionals that can meet the different needs of the clients as they present themselves to the center for assistance.
The Center will be staffed with Licensed professionals and Certified Experts such as Attorneys, Coaches, Counselors, Therapists, Educators, Nutritionists, Mediators, and Conflict Resolution Experts. Holistic Health Practitioners, Behavioral Analysts, and Integrative Health Consultants are all part of our staff.
Within this Center, there will be a division dedicated to the children - this will be the "Kid's Coaches Division". This division will be dedicated to the children from as young as 3 years old to 18 years old; and allow for these kids to be matched 1:1 with advocate coaches that can "walk the journey of divorce" with them to allow for increased health and wellness through the process through to it's conclusion. Today, without the existence of the Center, these children are quite often not given the right kind of dedicated support by experts in this field such that they can be provided the relief they are so deserving of. The parents often struggle to unite as they pick who will pay for which therapist, or find it a challenge as they "frontload" the child with an "agenda" of what to say, and the reasons why (prior to court, etc). The Center would be an objective option that all parties could agree on as a healthy alternative. It would be the place to offer unconditional and professional support to the children who need this to preserve their health and self-esteem through this trying experience.
The Center will offer the option for couples counseling for those who may be on the verge of divorcing, but have a chance at resolution. It will offer a professional means to dissolving marriage in a calm, amicable fashion. It will offer a way to remove restraining orders (if possible and safe), and have legal terms written such that the fees are kept low, but the goals of the parents can both be met. It will be a place where family counseling can occur for the whole family if that is the most suitable option. It is where continued co-parenting can take place to provide amicable relations for parenting so that the children can remain in healthy homes going forward.
