The Family Network
The Family Network, (TFN) Inc., Collaborative Counseling Center was established by Dr. Randy Heller in 1994. In forming TFN, Randy’s vision was to create an environment where people could safely and comfortably receive direction for managing life’s inevitable changes and challenges in a respectful and collaborative way.
TFN provides comprehensive counseling services to diverse populations in need of direction. As the center’s director, Randy has been dedicating herself to assisting individuals, couples, families, and groups over the past 25 years. The Family Network is a place where families can find direction for navigating through the school system, the legal system, their work, social, and family systems.
To that end, Dr. Heller utilizes an integrated, systemic approach to counseling; joining with and empowering people to define what works as well as what is not “working for them” in their lives. In doing so, clients will discover the possibilities for “making life work” as they identify their strengths, access their resources, tap into their own potential for success, and take action toward achieving their desired goals.
As a sub-specialty, Dr. Heller has unique education, training, and skills to guide families transitioning through divorce. In addition to her psychotherapy practice, she works as a Collaborative Divorce Facilitator, Co-parenting Specialist, Certified Family Mediator, Credentialed Parenting Coordinator, Reunification Specialist, and Social Investigator.
In 2011, she researched and published her doctoral dissertation on this topic, wrote and teaches a course in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Collaborative Divorce to master's and doctoral students at Nova Southeastern University, and is co-director of a Pro Bono project in conjunction with Mission United/Legal Aid of Broward County in an effort to assist Veteran families going through divorce. Dr. Heller is very active in the divorce industry, facilitating amicable resolution among divorcing couples, and serving on several of the Boards of the many of the organizations statewide that focus on divorce. Dr. Heller strongly believes that engaging in these alternative approaches enables her to save future generations of children from the perils of divorce wars.
What happens to divorcing couples in the middle of a pandemic?
Where can parents go for help with co-parenting/time-sharing disputes when the courts are closed?
Families are in crisis, and they don't know where to turn. Collaborative Practice is an internationally-recognized method created to help separated/divorcing couples, and parents manage divorce and child-related matters peacefully without the courts. I, along with many of my Collaborative Colleagues are working remotely and here to assist. Please e-mail or call me for more information.
