If you are facing separation or divorce, you may be concerned because, not only are you ending a relationship, but you face the possibility of a destructive increase in anger, tension, damage to your family, and expensive litigation. Mary Ann Aronsohn can guide you through the process in a way that helps you remain respectful, reduce the difficult feelings, and keep your integrity.
If you have children, Mary Ann excels at helping you construct a respectful co-parenting alliance that reduces pain for them.
In one recent case, Mary Ann worked on a team that helped two parents lower the emotional “heat” in their divorce, so that their young son’s well-being became the focus of their energy. This case could have become a drawn-out court battle, yet it never went to court.
In another case, Mary Ann built a team for a couple with over 30 years of marriage. They reported being thrilled that they were able to feel ” . . . more congenial, more respectful, more trusting and more secure . . . even during the process” of their financially complicated situation.
The areas of expertise Mary Ann offers include:
• Collaborative Divorce Assessment/Case Management
• Divorce Coaching
• Co-Parenting Therapy/Classes
