Divorce is hard. Probably the most difficult conflict you’ll ever have to face. Add kids to the mix and it becomes 1000x more difficult. What makes it especially challenging is when it seems that the other parent is working against you every step of the way. This causes unnecessary drama, stress, and a combative nature to your interactions. Sound familiar?
Traditional divorce pits you and their other parent against each other, is incredibly stressful, really expensive, and takes twice as long as you ever expected (even longer these days). The mental strain is like nothing you’ve ever or will ever experience.

My divorce itself was mundane . . . the years of constant, stomach-churning conflict afterward was the most drama I never expected.
Every week was some new chaos. A battle over nothing and everything! The damage our divorce had done, made what destroyed our marriage, live ammunition that we hurled at each other whenever we got a chance. We were not aware how it was hurting our children and preventing us from healing and moving forward. It had to stop, but traditional therapy was no help (and expensive) and left me with a feeling that there had to be a better way.
I ugly cried — a lot. I got mad. Then I founded Agreed.
My inner researcher got to work. Speaking to many close personal friends whose divorces were several years long, extremely expensive and combative, made me realize the problem was bigger than what I had experienced. The stress affected personal relationships, their relationships with their children, work and their own health! Destroying one another in the court of law benefited NO ONE. I got busy learning about conflict and became a Certified Conflict Dynamic Profile Practitioner and with my background in web-based software developed the ideas behind our unique methodology. We’ve worked closely with experts in coaching, divorces, counseling, marriage family therapy, educators as well as, parents, psychologists, law enforcement, medical professionals and attorneys to create a cooperative solution that addresses the many difficult issues of divorce and co-parenting. Agreed. empowers people to do conflict better.
