Family & Divorce Mediation
Dr. Casey Holtz is a trained and certified mediator in the states of Wisconsin and Texas. Mediation is a problem solving conversation facilitated by an impartial professional. Dr. Holtz works with parents in a collabora- tive fashion to help them discover the best solution
and resolution to their conflict. He uses his professional knowledge about child develop- ment, personality and family dynamics to facilitate helpful and healthy discussions.
Dr. Holtz will help each person communicate their ideas, explore options and resources, negotiate differences and make decisions. Research suggests individuals involved in mediation have a positive experience because they each have an opportunity to present their ideas and to have a voice, and they have a high degree of participation in making decisions. Families can use mediation as an alternative to traditional divorce. Through mediation, parents can create parenting plans for their divorce and discuss important financial decisions as they go through significant family transitions. Ideally, families leave the mediation process with improved communication and effective decision making that is focused on maintaining the health of all individuals involved.
