Many couples who are consciously uncoupling want a conflict-free, low cost separation.  Mediation offers the ability to formally separate and/or divorce without going broke. High conflict divorces can cost thousands of dollars and create stress for the whole family.  Mediation is private, efficient, and affordable. Mediation services do not grant the divorce, (you still have to go to court for the dissolution agreement), however, during mediation we create the Memorandum of Understanding which is the most important component of divorce, often causing the most distress.  

The Memorandum of Understanding Includes:

Property Settlement Details

Child Custody Details

Holiday Planning

College Planning 

Alimony and Child Support Expectations 


$200 per 60 minute session. 

90 Minute Session (recommended) $250

$200 per document 

Telephone consultation $3.00 per minute 

Clinical Supervision 

Dejaye has completed the coursework and testing requirements to become a Clinical Supervisor in the State of Arizona.  


$50 per 60 minute session
