Description of Practice

Skip the divorce and save your marriage. Marital mediation is a collaborative process for couples who are experiencing conflict BUT are committed to their marriage and wish to stay together and avoid divorce. Marital mediation offers couples a better, non-court solution to resolving their differences and finding peace than the typical divorce scenario. Marital mediation is a better way to resolve marital conflict, avoid divorce and keep your marriage intact. Let me help you build skills, resolve conflict and stay married.

Professional Background

As a relationship specialist, family-systems coach, leadership consultant, and licensed marriage and family therapist, I work with individuals and couples every day seeking a resolution to their relational distresses. I understand the complexities of couple relationships and know the importance of helping partners feel seen, heard, and validated. As a certified domestic mediator, I am uniquely positioned to help you compassionately, assertively, and realistically evaluate your couplehood, set an agenda, considerer options, build skills, improve communication, spark intimacy and find a resolution to the issues that matter most to you. My husband and I co-founded Chrysalis Connections Counseling and Family Relationship Center to be a widely diverse resource for building strong marriages, bonded parental partners, and safe haven homes. My extensive training in family systems, marriage and family therapy, addictions, domestic mediation, parenting coordination, and spiritual direction allows me to effectively help couples envision and obtain their dream of the marriage and family they desire most. Chrysalis Connections, LLC is a relationship-focused private practice located just west of Indianapolis, in Plainfield, IN 46168, and provides a variety of individual, couple, and family services in-office, online, and by phone. Day, evening and weekend appointment times are available. Appointments can be scheduled online or by phone at 317-760-0604.

Approach

Marital mediation works best with couples who are committed to their marriage relationship and who are willing to be actively engaged in developing, implementing, and maintaining a more interconnected and mutually satisfying couplehood. Couples who participate in marital mediation work with a trained therapist who uses a variety of strategies to help the couple create options, build skills, improve communication, and spark intimacy. It is a practical and superior process for helping couples resolve conflict, deepen intimacy and build safety. Marital mediation is a viable option for any couple committed to their marriage, their children, who want to avoid the financial impact of divorce, and who want to skip the emotional and mental distress of breaking the bond between themselves and their partner. Marital mediation can also act as a spring-board to individual or deeper couple work should the couple feel this would be beneficial.
