Anne Lucas has over 19 years in private practice working with couples. As a coach, she helps to identify problem patterns and areas that might get in the way as the couple navigates the complex and painful transitions through the emotional, legal and financial aspects of divorce. This is also where a couple begins to dismantle their marriage while planting seeds for healthier post-divorce relationships in new family configurations.

Seattle Mind Counseling
In working with couples as a mental health counselor, I have found that even people who are very angry with each other, long for a time when they could be positively related. I work with that premise in mind, when helping establish a life beyond divorce. I am an advocate for children when their wellbeing is subject to decisions from the court. I offer post divorce co-parenting groups, two running concurrently so that each parent can be in his or her own group. See my website.
