Susan Carpenter founded Life's Doors Mediation in 2011.  However, she has more than 20 years of experience mentoring parents in high conflict divorce.  Her experience includes specialty training in divorce, high conflict and co-parent coaching and education. As Susan puts a greater focus on coaching and education, it made sense to move mediation services into her coaching entity.

When one door closes, another opens;

but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door

 that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

Mediator, Coach, Licensed Parent Educator

I have no idea where I'd be if I had not met Susan.  There were so many things I did not understand about co-parenting.  She helped me see that I was stuck and worked with me on moving forward so I could really support my children through a high conflict situation that was negatively affecting my children and putting my relationships with them at risk.  

Thank you, Susan!
