Jan & Jillian Yuhas, MA, MFT, CPC
Jan and Jillian are dedicated to helping individuals and families facing co-parenting complexities or divorce by amicably resolving disputes and increasing constructive communication for a peaceful resolution.
Growing up in a divorced family themselves, they understand the importance of co-parenting and establishing a new family structure that benefits the welfare of all parties involved. They assist their clients in reaching parenting agreements that are sustainable, diminish conflict through resolution tools, establish healthy boundaries, cultivate healthy relationships, and simplify the divorce process through coaching and/or mediation.
Their passion to help others began at the age of 22 when they became volunteers at the National Runaway Safeline. During their volunteer experience, they helped mediate high-conflict conversations between parent(s) and their teens who ran away from home. They provided compassionate guidance and solutions to the families in order to work through their challenges and unresolved differences prior to the child returning home. Jan and Jillian’s dedication to volunteer work inspired and fueled their interest to want to help others work through their relationship struggles, which lead to their Masters in Marriage & Family Psychology.
