When lives change, paths differ, and individual goals do not match, perhaps the healthiest option is parting ways and going for a HEALTHY DIVORCE.
Typically when people think of divorce, they think of negativity and hostility. Making sound decisions, as one might expect, is particularly difficult when one is in a highly combative state of mind. However, at Feeling Good Therapy and Training Center, our aim is to help families experience the positive outcomes of divorce. As such, Dr. Dashtban, Psy.D., who brings years of experience as a licensed clinical psychologist approaches the concept of divorce with the well-being of everyone in mind. Dr. Dashtban pays special attention to children's well-being when they are going to be raised in two different households. Likewise, she pays particular attention to the age bracket, income potential, and access to community resources for each member of the couple, when helping them reach the best outcome in their divorce settlement. Dr. Dashtban's divorce mediation services is particularly sensitive to the needs of LGBT, medically challenged, and inter-racial-intercultural marriages.
Dr. Dashtban is a trained divorce mediator with years of experience in helping families in conflict. However, when you retain Dr. Dashtban's services as your divorce mediator, you have not hired services of a mental health professional, you are only using her years of experience in helping families in guiding your family reach the best divorce outcome.
If needed, Dr. Dashtban may suggest other mental health professionals in the community or within Feeling Good Therapy and Training Center to help members of the family who are going through divorce. At those times, the mental health services provided to you will be confidential between you and your psychologist/therapist where Dr. Dashtban remains your divorce mediator.
