Divorce Transition Services
Divorce Transition Services (DTS) is staffed by a group of experienced marital and family therapists and mental health professionals with mediation training. We provide services to those who are going through or adjusting to divorce. All members of DTS have had many years of experience in resolving difficult family conflicts.
It is our belief that when divorce matters are handled in the traditional adversarial manner and court litigation that conflicts escalate unnecessarily. Costs rise and many in the midst of such conflict realize the issues are getting out of proportion.
The most important thing parents can do for their children is to seek solutions that reduce conflict and animosity and settle issues quickly. Long drawn out battles harm children.
Most who have tried traditional litigation are unhappy with the results after the divorce is final.

Mediators maintains neutrality and fairness and does not meet with both parties. The mediator assists in an attempt to engage both sides of the dispute in the process of resolving the dispute.

We provide counseling services to help adults and children adjust to the changing circumstance of their lives both during and after divorce. We may explore topics ranging from anxiety, anger management, interpersonal boundaries, and parenting to academic performance, changes in behavior, and feelings of conflicted loyalty.
A Parenting Coordinator (PC) is appointed by the court to manage ongoing issues in high-conflict child custody and visitation cases. The PC assists parents to implement their parenting plan, make the necessary changes needed to parent more effectively, help resolve disputes, and educate parents about children’s needs.
