Consultation, Assessment,

Strategy, and Coaching

with Dr. Coleman


The Consultation, Assessment, Strategy and Coaching

session includes the following:


  • A thorough history of your child from birth to present

  • Assess the role of others in your estrangement such as ex-spouses, sons- or daughters-in-law, or other family members

  • Review prior amends letters 

  • Edit or help write a new amends letter to your adult child 

  • Assess the role of mental illness or other challenges in your child as contributing factors to your estrangement, both when they were young and since entering adulthood

  •  Assess the role of ADHD, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, gender identity issues and political differences as contributing factors to your estrangement both when they were young and since entering adulthood

  • Evaluate the relative importance of prior “mistakes,” history, or dynamics of the parent-child relationship

  • Review correspondence to and from your adult child or other relevant people such as sons- or daughters-in-law

  • Evaluate the role of the child’s past or current therapist in causing or perpetuating the estrangement

  • Examine prior attempts at reconciliation

  • 45-minute Zoom call with the parent or parents to create a plan for going forward.

  • As part of the process, I will reach out to your adult child via email to see if they will correspond with me.

Four New Intensive 6-week Estrangement Support Groups are starting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and 

Thursday Mornings and Afternoons


Limited to only 6 attendees or couples per group, the Estrangement Support Group is geared to creating an environment of safety, intimacy, shared experiences, and strategies. 


Each group meets weekly for 70 minutes. 


Because the groups will be small, each attendee will have time to achieve the following goals:


·      Write an amends letter specific to your child’s psychology and your history with them

·      Gain support from others who can empathize with your situation and struggles

·      Learn strategies for coping with the ongoing pain and isolation of estrangement

·      Learn how to address such common issues as difficult sons- or daughters-in-law, issues in the child related to gender identity or sexuality, mental illness, parental alienation, and false accusations.

·      Get an individualized strategy for going forward from Dr. Coleman which includes reaching out to your child.
