Counseling Professionals
Often, when divorcing clients come to me, they have emotional struggles included in the matter that I am not equipped to help them with, at which time I encourage them to talk to a qualified professional. It is up to each individual to make certain that any professional they may wish to hire is competent. My list is no substitute for your own independent investigation. Names are offered alphabetically.
