Facilitator in Collaborative Practice

Collaborative (Law) Practice is a way for a divorcing couple to work together with trained  professionals to create a mutually acceptable settlement without going to court. In addition to your Colllaborative attorneys, a facilitator, financial specialist, child specialist or divorce coach or coaches may be engaged. Clients benefit throughout collaboration from the support of their chosen professionals.

 Making life decisions related to separation and divorce can feel overwhelming. In the Collaborative process, clients have the support of knowledgeable experts to help evaluate their choices. In addition, the facilitator helps make progress easier by helping all participants’ interact and communicate effectively.

As facilitator, I help attorneys and clients address sensitive issues and transform conflict. Having an alliance with none, I bring a fluidity to an often constrained situation and a perspective attuned to the whole of things. In this way, I support clients and their attorneys in identifying, voicing and addressing needs in a collaborative manner.
