I provide services in the areas of counseling, family mediation and collaborative divorce cases throughout Manatee and Sarasota Counties.
Counseling treatment includes:
Depression and Anxiety
A Collaborative Divorce is an alternative to to the typical, litigated divorce process. This approach to reaching a settlement agreement avoids the courtroom and keeps personal matters private. I encourage you to explore all of your options before making a decision about how you and your spouse will proceed through your divorce process. For more information, feel free to contact me and/or visit http://nextgenerationdivorce.com/collaborative-divorce/
Mediation services are designed to provide divorcing couples with an opportunity to negotiate important issues, such as assets and liabilities, parenting plans, timesharing schedules and alimony. Mediation offers couples the chance to establish agreements that work for each party involved, rather than having the courts decide for you.
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
