A Better Way to Get Divorced with Compassionate Mediation®

There Is a Better Way to Get Divorced 

(... for everyone considering, in the middle, or even past a divorce.)

My heart goes out to you.

Your family doesn’t need to be “broken,” but can be peacefully and respectfully “re-structured.” Your children need to be shielded from the shrapnel of your hurt or animosity. Love is the answer — and it starts with loving your SELF.

Feelings and Self Care

All of our Parts are trying to be helpful, no matter what their behavior. When we can love them for their intentions, they can transform and become valuable consultants and protectors. Love is always the answer- starting with Loving your SELF.

My Triumvirate of Tyrants
Seeks to bully me
As they jockey for position
To find which of these big three

Childhood. Adulthood. Motherhood. Fatherhood. Singlehood. A different hood of which we may not have wanted to be a part. Singlehood has an array of opportunities - and challenges. The opportunities for growth are unparalleled. The major challenge is seeing the opportunities.

Many of us think of singlehood as the way station en route to a relationship. It’s the bridge we cross to get to where we’re meant to be. It’s a limbo time of searching - but it’s often a search for “another,’ rather than a journey inward.

Welcome to the State of Limbo - that area in the travelogue in which you seem to run around in circles, or just state a sit-down strike and don’t move at all. It may be true that your vistas are limited and your opportunities for new experiences are narrowed. You might be willing to sacrifice the ability to move forward for the security—no matter how fleeting or illusory—of holding onto the relationship, marriage, person and/or dream. It’s your trip and you can plan it any way you want.

Once Transformed, No Need to Go Back. Butterfly Emerging.

Create Passion by Sharing Peace and Partnership

You can learn how to communication with compassion — from your highest and best SELF. When there is a peaceful and respectful dialogue, it’s safe to put your walls down. You remove the filters through which you judged your partner. You no longer see him/her with blame or judgment or fear, and you realize there are no triggers to threaten your security with each other.

Divorce is one of life’s major stressors, but perhaps “wondering if you should get a divorce” can sometimes be more stressful than actually making a decision and moving forward. When you finally decide whether to stay or go, you can confidently move in that one direction. When you are not sure what you want to do, life becomes a series of vastly different possibilities, each with its own set of fears and concerns.

The Bridge between is in Compassionate Mediation®.

The world needs to be a safer place for marriage and divorce. Children should be shielded from the shrapnel of their parents’ animosity. Compassionate Mediation® offers a new paradigm for couples at a crossroads.

The more experience I have, the more compassion I have for the profound sadness and fear underneath my clients’ resentments or rage. No matter how far apart a couple can become emotionally and physically, their children are caught in the middle and continue to feel the strife.
