Common Ground Divorce Specialists
This fella speaks before he asks questions and makes all kinds of ignorant assumptions. It is clear the reason why the majority of mediation service providers have law degrees. This mediator was highly unethical in his practice, and the State of Utah should revoke his right to mediate during such highly stressful situations as modifying divorce decrees-especially when there are children involved in the divorce. My ex-husband desired to modify the divorce decree and I was happy with the decree as it stood, but agreed that he may have had justifiable grounds to modify. To protect the best interests of not only our children, but our coparenting relationship, I thought a mediation would be more neutral than attempting to solve the issues ourselves, and both parties would have been better served if we saw a mediator and kept our decree out of the hands of the court. In my profession I have had the opportunity to understand certain forms of communication. I was very "keen' on his conversation style that was extremely condescending. Extremely sexist. He made remarks about how I wouldn't or shouldn't be "single" long since I was obviously not unattractive. He used this as a segue to suggest he could offer me dating and relationship advice (for a fee). My ex husband spent $300 an hour for a three hour session, and at the end of the session, I was in such a state of disempowerment and shock. I had been crying for nearly the entire session listening to his "mansplain." He very unethically suggested I had better agree to his process since he was always erred on the side of the "woman" anyway. Thank God I had the sense not to sign the documents the next day, when I realized I didn't have to agree to anything! My ex husband ended up spending almost a thousand dollars for a hokey mediation process. He jumped over a dollar to save a dime with this clunky blockhead. I hired an attorney the next day and he laughed at how unethical the session went for me. Now we have a court date.

Salcido Law Firm - Utah Law Firm
Very disappointing. My lawyers switched 3x at their whim. No one knew my issue or case. They didn't listen to me. Days b4 I'd get a return call.Attorney that showed up to court was not prepared, did not bring paperwork (we had to borrow from my ex), Benny spoke in a whisper, to which the judge mocked "HUH?"SO EMBARRASSING!Of course we lost. When I asked for help to right the wrong- they refused! Chris Salcido sent a short email. . . they'd "PASS" on helping me get what the judge ordered in my divorce Win or lose, THEY get paid, SO it doesn't really matter to them. Money is their bottom line. Jerry Salcido called me after my online review, 2 yrs 4 months after my case, threatening that I suddenly had an outstanding balance- first time I heard of this. Never got a bill or phone call prior to my request for their assistance on unresolved issues Jerry Salcido suggested they could "forgive the debt" IF I REMOVE MY HONEST AND TRUE REVIEW. I told him to send it to COLLECTIONS. Judgements in my divorce, made in Mar 2014, have still not been fulfilled. My credit is ruined. I can't buy a car. My future is unprotected since the retirement has never been split -as ORDERED BY DIVORCE DECREE in 2014-Complete waste of time and $$$ !!Anyone know a good attorney that ACTUALLY represents the client, NOT their pocket?

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
