Let Kids Be Kids

We help children of divorce grow up with positive self-esteem and self-regulation abilities by tackling the problem at its source.

We’re building a world with happier, well-adjusted children, who grow into healthy adults.

Is your divorce going to mess up your kids? Well, that’s totally up to you.

Your relationship has come to an end, but your co-parenting journey is
just beginning. You have a choice – right now – to put the drama
aside and focus on what really matters. (Psst, it’s your kids!)


From deciding to separate to learning how to parent one child in two homes, and resolving challenging conflicts, we’ll get you through the tough stuff, always prioritizing the best interests of your child(ren).


Is your child refusing to spend time with you? Have you been court-ordered to get your parent-child relationship back to a place of functionality? The process is multi-faceted and challenging, but help is on the way.


Whether it’s you, your kids, or the entire family struggling through something, we can support you with a safe place to talk, an impartial perspective, and the tools you need to move you and/or your family forward

Healing is generational
& it starts with you

Change is tough. Maintaining your sanity (and your perspective) while you navigate new waters can be overwhelming and a struggle. Are you acting in accordance with your values?

Stay human throughout the process by working with our supportive, unbiased, and non-judgemental team. We’ll help you feel less overwhelmed and more confident, so that you are able to make the best choices for you and your evolving family.

By focusing on the child(ren) throughout the process, we can minimize the effects and be proactive in tackling future issues.

The buck stops here.
