It has been my great fortunate to have been involved with attorneys and financial professionals who have integrity, are competent and who are committed to the collaborative law paradigm. I believe the Texas model that promotes the use of two neutral professionals (a Communications Coach and a Financial Professional) allows the attorneys to do their jobs without the distractions of worrying about 1) managing the emotional exchanges of a couple in a case, or 2) providing the high level of knowledge about financial nuances that a seasoned financial professional brings to the team. For those considering divorce, I encourage looking into the collaborative law model – it isn’t for everybody, but if parents are wanting what is best for their children, to be able to maintain a decent relationship with each other post-divorce, and to have more control over their own future, then the collaborative model could be just what fits the bill. As a Communications Coach, my style is to be very straightforward in a non-abrasive manner. Because of my former teaching experience and my private mental health practice working with families of divorce and blended families, I have many experiences from which to draw that adds to my ability to provide communication guidance in the collaborative law setting.
