Find a Collaborative Family Professional

Your search for Collaborative professionals, including family law lawyers, financial professionals, and family specialists, ends here

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 help clients address 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 the client to develop positive stress management, goal setting, 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 and allows them to be their best self in a two household family.

Divorce Coaches can have an educational background in law, mental health, or finance.

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.

While he is comfortable in the courtroom, he is particularly adept at finding solutions for his clients outside of the court process. To that end he has recently expanded his practice to include Collaborative Family Law and Mediation because he recognizes that very often the best solutions to family conflict are those generated by the people directly involved.
