Parenting Plan Consultation, Design and Mediation
A Parenting Plan designates the rights and duties of never-married and/or divorced parents. It also sets out the parenting schedule for the child, commonly referred to as Custody and/or Visitation. We can help you design one to match the needs of your child. We can also mediate any disputes the parents might have about that parenting plan. Learn More
“Divorce Sanity” Co-Parenting Workshops
Divorce Sanity Co-Parenting is a four (4) hour educational workshop. It is designed to provide parents with the information and skills needed to minimize the impact of divorce on their children and maximize their parenting skills in their life long parenting relationship.

Divorce Counseling/Co-Parent “Coaching”
Divorce related counseling sometimes differs in style and content from other types of psychotherapy. While we have the clinical knowledge and skills to assist someone with depression or anxiety disorders, most divorcing clients are not diagnosable. They have a need for information about the process of the divorce, someone to coach them through it, and someone to repeatedly reassure them that they are not crazy. Parents may also need coaching to refine their new co-parenting skills, particularly when they find the other parent to be less than cooperative. We can help.
Team Collaborative Law
Don’t give away your power and control. Don’t ask the court to make decisions about the future of your family. We can help you create the agreements that you need to restructure your family or your parenting plan. Learn More
Anger Management Groups
Sometimes, during the legal process, one or both parties, agree to, or are ordered to attend Anger Management. These are intensive psycho-educational anger awareness and management programs designed for individuals whose anger has given them difficulty in their lives.
We recommend that you review the services available under Mediation or Team Collaborative Law before you pursue this option, but sometimes families need the court to make their parenting decisions for them. At those times, a social study is often recommended. Learn More
Other Providers (Our Competition)
Sometimes, for various reasons, people ask us who else we might recommend to provide a particular forensic service. Here’s where we tell them to look first.
If they want more choices, CoParentingTexas.com (a project we are affiliated with) has compiled a free listing of several local providers who work with court-connected issues, including contact information and their specialty areas. This is a growing project that continues to look for additional providers to help serve family law clients. The site is completely free, please pass it on if you know someone who might be interested in being listed.
