Separation, Divorce, and Custody Services

Divorce is a wrenching time for families. Even the most amicable divorce can be hard for parents and kids. Parents may have a difficult time coping with their needs and the needs of their children in the early stage of the process. It's easy to focus on the things that feel "broken" and lost. Dr. Raney helps people find their way through the loss and to the "New Normal" on the other side.

Child Therapy

Sometimes kids need a place to share their feelings about juggling two homes. I provide a neutral space where children can express their sadness, anger, and happiness while developing new coping skills to thrive in their post-divorce families.
Always remember: You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Family Therapy

You and your children may need help figuring out how to function better as a family in your post-divorce lives. You may need support while integrating a step-parent into your home or blending two families. I can help improve communication patterns, realign power dynamics, and support new parenting skills.

Coparent Counseling

Coparent counseling works to help you and your children's other parent effectively meet your kids' needs and keep kids out of the middle.

We work together to improve your ability to communicate, problem solve, and work together as parents.
I work with families before they have separated as well as post-separation/post-divorce.

With families planning for separation, coparent counseling typically involves helping the couple make decisions about where to live, how to tell the kids, and developing a time share plan that works for everyone.

With families who have already separated/divorced, I typically work on a court-appointed basis. In these cases, the goals for coparenting are identified by the courts.

Parent Coaching and Consultation

As you adjust to the new normal that is your life as a single parent, it can be helpful to have someone who acts as a sounding board and offers constructive advice. This type of work is often very goal driven and solution focused.
