This directory of Collaborative professionals in Edmonton and area provides the quickest and easiest way to find the qualified professionals you need to obtain a divorce or separation without going to court and needing to deal with all the associated costs and stress.
No two people will need the same support — you may need a collaboratively trained divorce lawyer and a financial planner, another couple may need a family specialist for counselling services and a divorce coach. Yet another couple may just need a family law lawyer who knows how to help a couple through a collaborative divorce.
Divorce Coaches are licensed therapists who have specialized training in the area of divorce/separation. They help clients address intense emotional issues that often create barriers in settling disputes during this challenging time. They will assist the individual by providing them with resources, education, and information, while helping develop positive stress management, effective communication, and conflict-resolution skills. Divorce Coaches can also assist with clarifying the individual’s needs, interests, and concerns to prepare them to advocate for themselves in team meetings. This keeps the process moving forward, but also supports the development of long-term healthy coping as the family continues to live in two-households.
You have multiple search options (All, Family Lawyers, Financial Professionals, Family Specialists). You can also search by Postal Code if you are interested in “finding a Collaborative Professional in my area”, or by name and keyword.

Originally from Athabasca, Alberta, I joined Quantz Law shortly after completing my Juris Doctor degree in 2014 from the Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta. I was called to the Alberta Bar as a Barrister and Solicitor in July 2015 and mainly practice in the areas of Family Law, Mediation, Real Estate, and Wills and Estates.

While litigation and the court system are inherently adversarial, Collaborative Law focuses on reducing future conflict between the parties by improving communication and problem-solving skills. To me, helping clients work through the issues while reducing further tension and strain on relationships is absolutely vital when children are involved. I am passionate about this process and believe that my experience working with both urban and rural clientele equip me with the skills needed to assist clients with a wide range of legal issues.
When going through a Collaborative Family Law (CFL) process, it is important to have a team of professionals to support both parties in reaching a fair and equitable settlement. One key member of this team is the neutral financial professional.
