CONFLICT MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Individual and Family Conflict Coaching
Deborah Denson will help you unravel the conflicted places that keep you stuck. You will gain clarity and learn skills that will transform the quality of your life and your relationships so you can make decisions and move forward from a balanced and peaceful place.
The divorce process can be confusing and overwhelming, if for no other reason than it is new and unknown. I can help you move through the process, provide resources and information specific to your situation, sort through and understand financial information, and get clear on what you want for yourself moving forward. I work with clients individually and in collaboration with attorneys.
Transformative Divorce Mediation
You and your spouse can collaboratively design your future in a way that is less destructive both personally and financially. Transformative mediation offers couples support in talking through tough emotional issues so they can gain clarity and improved connection. Agreements coming out of this place are more effective in meeting everyone’s needs, and thus more sustainable in the long term. The value to the individuals extends far beyond the terms of the agreement.
•Mediation can happen before, during, or after the onset of legal proceedings. It is separate and unique from the legal system, and can provide your lawyer with an efficient structure for negotiating in a way that gets better results and diminishes ongoing litigation.
•Mediation is a voluntary process. Sitting at the table together in a safe and controlled environment can restore relationships, and this is especially beneficial where children are involved. Divorce does not end the life long relationship as co-parents.
Post Divorce Mediation
Parenting Plans in Tennessee include language that parents “must make a good faith effort to resolve the issue… before retuning to Court.” As a Supreme Court Rule 31 Listed General Civil/Family Mediator, I can help you with Parenting Plan revisions or any other post divorce problems that crop up.
My experience is that a negotiated settlement may end the current battle, but it does not necessarily resolve the conflict. Mediation provides the structure and the process for resolving disputes in a way that keeps you in charge of the results and can reconcile ongoing relationships.
