Sometimes divorce is inevitable.

The emotional devastation caused by “combat divorce” is avoidable.

The mission of my Divorce Peacemaking process is to create more peace in the world – one person, one couple, one family – at a time. Peace is not simply the absence of conflict. Emotions underlie and fuel the legal and financial battles of divorce. Divorce Peacemaking provides you with the tools and skills to co-create durable agreements by resolving your conflicts in constructive, solution-focused ways. If you have children, you will learn how to promote their emotional health by effectively co-parenting them now and into the future.

The SPLIT Outreach Project

The SPLIT Outreach Project, founded in 2014, supports the best outcomes for children of divorce and their parents, by making the voices of kids heard and encouraging cooperation between co-parents.

The SPLIT Outreach Project leverages the emotional impact of two films, SPLIT: The EARLY Years, and SPLIT UP: The TEEN Years, with discussion guides, a website, and activity books for both children and adults.
