Randi Cohen, LPCC-S

Randi Cohen Because of my decades of work with couples, I thought there had to be a better way for couples to separate without tearing the entire family structure to shreds. When I discovered the Central Ohio Academy of Collaborative Divorce Professionals, I wanted to jump for joy! This process offers so much more hope for families to gracefully divide and still honor the system that connects them. And by slowly working together, the couple can begin the healing process as they learn to decouple and still move forward.
