Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator
Qualified and Court Appointed Parenting Coordinator
Reunification Counselor & Coparent Counselor
Welcome, my name is Kathleen Coughlin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida (SW14331) and Pennsylvania (CW016161). The focus of my practice is on alternative dispute resolution and conflict resolution. In addition, I offer the following specialized services: Co-Parent Counseling, Family Mediation, Parenting Coordination, and Reunification Counseling. My hope is to provide supportive services to children and families going through periods of transition. The goal is to reduce conflict in the parenting relationship in an effort to protect the emotional health of the children.
As a professional, my focus has been working with families that are in high conflict co-parenting relationships. Above all, it is imperative to the emotional health of the children that their feelings and voices are heard. It is important for the children to be given permission to love both parents freely without pressure from the other parent. If you would like to schedule an appointment or consultation, please contact 386-449-8600 and ask to talk with Kathleen Coughlin.
“Co-Parenting is not a competition. It’s a collaboration of two homes working together with the best interest of the child at heart. Work for your kids not against them.” – Dr. Anne Brown
Kathleen Coughlin’s Experience
Prior to opening my practice in Florida in 2018, I owned a behavioral health counseling practice in Pennsylvania for over 17 years. The focus of my practice has been working with local families that are having difficulty coping after a divorce. I have worked with local courts to assist families that are struggling to co-parent after a separation or a divorce. I have focused my training and experience on supporting families as they navigate through the process of separation and divorce. I help parents to recognize that placing children in the middle of conflict is extremely detrimental to the child. Above all, I encourage parents to prioritize children in all the decisions that they make for the future of their families. As a parent, it may be important to seek your own emotional support as you navigate through the process. To learn more about my experience please call and ask to speak with Kathleen Coughlin at 386-449-8600.
“The sign of great parenting is not the child’s behavior. The sign of truly great parenting is the parent’s behavior.” – Andy Smithson
I view counseling as a collaborative process. In sessions, we will focus on exploring your feelings and life challenges. During therapy, you will increase your level of self-understanding and learn effective ways to cope with feelings. You will learn how to restructure negative thoughts into positive thoughts, develop creative techniques to reduce stress, and increase self-care strategies to achieve your goals. At Ocean Vista Counseling, our hope is that anyone that comes through our doors will find clarity, hope, and purpose. We stand ready to walk this journey of self-discovery with you.
