Divorce Coaching

 Susan Carpenter offers divorce and conflict coaching services to parents whether they are divorced parents or married parents. These services can be done jointly or individually.  Parents may wish to attend coaching with an older child to help build or rebuild the parent-child relationship when the relationship has been affected by past events.  Some parents also seek parent coaching for assistance with child behavior problems or to counteract alienating behaviors coming from a hostile co-parent.  One-on-one coaching is particularly helpful for parents in high conflict or trying to co-parent after domestic violence or abusive histories.  Visit our divorce coaching page to learn more.

High Conflict

Susan Carpenter has the experience to handle high conflict situations.  We know that these situations not only harm children, but also the parents involved.  The cases are extremely painful ones for the family and difficult from a professional standpoint as well.  Parents often learn new skills and perspectives when professionals encourage parents to see things from their children's point of view.  For more on high conflict, visit our high conflict page.
