Welcome, my name is Kathleen Coughlin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida (SW14331), Pennsylvania (CW016161), and Virginia (0904012901).
The focus of my practice is on alternative dispute resolution and conflict resolution. I offer the following specialized services: Co-Parent Counseling, Family Mediation, Parenting Coordination, and Reunification Counseling.
As a professional, my focus has been working with families that are in high conflict co-parenting relationships. The goal is to reduce conflict in the parenting relationship to protect the emotional health of the children. Above all, it is imperative to the children that their feelings and voices are heard. They need to be permitted to love both parents freely without pressure from the other parent. “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 no against them.” – Dr. Anne Brown.
Kathleen Coughlin’s Experience
I have worked in the behavioral health field for over 23 years. The focus of my practice has been on supporting families as they cope with a separation or 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 their children in decision-making. As a parent, it may be important to seek your own supportive counseling as you navigate through these changes.
“The sign of great parenting is not the child’s behavior. The sign of truly great parenting is the parent’s behavior.” – Andy Smithson
