I am excited to announce the expansion of Harmony Counseling’s services to include Family Mediation. I believe that when mediation is used to resolve conflict peace stands a greater chance of being achieved, possibly, even, Harmony… Family Mediation can fall under three umbrellas:
Mediation to Stay Together: Often a couple wants to remain together and is facing challenges on doing so. I can help both people come to an agreement on those challenges.
Divorce Mediation: When a couple chooses to separate I can assist with developing the Separation Agreement including developing a parenting plan along with the financial and other components.
Also under the umbrella of Divorce Mediation falls mediating changes to an agreement, mediating co-parenting differences and serving as a Parenting Coordinator.
Family Mediation: Family Mediation includes mediating disputes among family members including disagreements between parents and their children and creating a parenting plan for parents who are not married. Many topics that are areas of conflict within families can be mediated.
People may wonder why I have chosen to expand in this particular area. For me, it seems natural. I entered the mental health field with a specific intent of helping children. Children have parents. Sometimes those parents live apart and sometimes they live together. In helping the parents I am helping the children. Helping parents have an amicable divorce or parenting plan, whether married or not, often paves the way for amicable co-parenting, which again, directly benefits the children.
I have invested in a 40-hour Mediation Course in the foundation and principles of basic mediation and have invested further in an advanced training in Divorce Mediation and in a family mediation internship. I currently volunteer in a small claims court on the North Shore. My fees are reflective of being a new mediator.
