Rob has over 30 years of professional experience working with children and families. For the past 16 years, Rob’s practice has focused primarily on providing support to parents and children through the process of separation/divorce. As a divorced parent and step-parent himself, Rob brings a unique sensitivity and understanding to his work with clients. He creates a safe and caring environment for all of the adults and children he works with.
Rob believes that “life is filled with transitions.” Every transition brings its own set of challenges and opportunities. When a transition creates stress or crisis, it is easy to become frozen with fear. Rob believes that we all have the capacity to overcome difficult transitions. Every transition provides an opportunity for growth. Seeking out clinical support when overwhelmed is a sign of personal strength. This can often be the first step towards successful healing and recovery.
Rob acts both as as a Divorce Coach and Child Specialist in the Collaborative Law process. Rob is a dispute resolution specialist and assists families in developing cooperative solutions as well as managing high conflict situations. He is an active member of Collaborative Divorce Vancouver and the North Shore Family Dispute Resolution Group. At Alyson Jones & Associates, Rob is a member of the Family Forward Reunification Team, the Child & Youth Team, and Separation/Divorce Team.
