When a parent and child have not enjoyed time together in a time period, Ms. Wheeler will meet with the child(ren) to determine the cause of the alienation: alignment, estrangement, affinity, etc. The process includes work with the estranged parent and the alienated child with the goal of reestablishing a good relationship.
After a reunification workshop in which a targeted parent and their alienated are given tools and psychoeducation experiences to help reunify them, Ms. Wheeler will monitor the progress of healing and repair .
