“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart”. I really value you and the blessing that you are. And, yes, you are one of the few that can go toe to toe with me and not allow me to get away with my drama. I admire and appreciate you. And, my life would not be as good or free as it is if not for you. –Lynn


“I had never heard of a collaborative divorce until someone recommended Kathleen Franco.  My experience with Kathleen was exceptional.  I came out a better person from my experience with her.  She is passionately trying to change the often contentious divorce process to a much more collaborative process where both parties come out feeling empowered, and whole. This enables them to thrive post divorce, and co-parent in a positive way.  My case was very high conflict, and my ex and I were very concerned about having to go to court, spending a lot of money, and then having the court make decisions for us.  We ended up using Kathleen as a mediator, and the outcome was much better than anticipated.  We didn’t end up in court, and with Kathleen’s amazing approach to conflict resolution we were able to negotiate ourselves, and make our own decisions.  I can’t imagine going though such a challenging process without her.  She is brilliant, intuitive, warm, and compassionate.  I highly recommend consulting with Kathleen before entering into the divorce process.”                                                 – Anne Oberg

“…more compassionate model of conflict resolution.”

“Kathleen has been leading the way to a more compassionate model of conflict resolution for many years. I am continually amazed at her fresh perspective and skillful approach to empowering others in conflict.”    – Cal

"Thank you for everything you did for me."

“I recently thought of Kathleen because of my experience going through the legal system in the 7th grade, which impacted me greatly.  In many ways, it shocked me into reality.  I appreciated how much Kathleen always believed in me despite words like “psycho” and “mentally ill” and “criminal” constantly floating around the courtroom- and my own young mind.  I have little by little let go of the experience while holding onto what wisdom came out of it.  I am even considering going to law school, which feels pretty full circle to me.  Anyways, I just wanted to reach out and say how much Kathleen’s efforts in fighting for my second chance helped me out.”
