Practice Name: Susan J. Friedman, LCSW, DVS, BCD
Office Address: 929 Sherwood Road, Bridgewater, NJ 08807
About: No couple plans for divorce, but unfortunately some relationships lead there. Arguing and worrying about the future can distract from being engaged with your children, focus at work and can be a source of anxiety. While there is no such thing as a “good” divorce couples can seek a better divorce by managing the process compassionately in such a way that can assuage the trauma parents and children experience. We all carry unresolved problems from previous life cycles with us, into our current situations. Conflict and dysregulation surface during periods of family life-cycle transitions. Questions about how to best respond include: 1.What can you do to help resolve the conflict, reduce stress and anxiety, improve communication and promote active problem solving and healing?; 2. Which behaviors will help make things better no matter what anyone else does?; and 3.How do you deal with differences without sacrificing connection? As a licensed mental health professional/divorce coach with 31 years of family practice experience, I can help you answer these and other complex questions. Together we can work through the difficult emotions and issues that divorce bring up. I can assist in creating and implementing a strategy that will help both parties find a mutually agreeable resolution to restructure family relationships. I look forward to working with you.

About: Hi. My name is Susan Horowitz, and I have been a family therapist for over twenty years. I am also a mediator and collaborative practitioner. No one plans for divorce. Contemplating the end of your marriage can be a stressful time in your life. Ending your marriage is an important decision. I would like to help your with your decision (or, perhaps that decision has been made for you), to either explore the end of your marriage, or to end your marriage with dignity. I will work with you and your spouse, and your attorneys, to select a divorce process that will have the least negative impact on your children. I will help you transition from a relationship bonded by marriage to a relationship bonded by healthy co-parenting, thus providing your children with the best of a two-household parenting relationship. Together, and in consultation with your attorneys, we will discuss issues of custody and parenting time, and develop a Parenting Plan that will become a part of your divorce settlement. During this process you will gain skills in effective communication and positive parental decision making, which were often stressors in the marriage. I will work with you and your spouse throughout the divorce process to help guarantee that the needs of your children remain front and center. I will remain available to work with you post-divorce on any future co-parenting issues. I look forward to working with you.
