For over 30 years Ron Heilmann had offered a flexible and comprehensive list of services. By assessing a client’s needs, he provides tailored counseling and mediation services for individuals, couples, and families.


Therapy is a broad term that covers many different counseling options. It is appropriate for anyone who is distressed by difficult events in their lives, or experiencing negative feelings. After initial consultation, a treatment plan will be tailored to a client’s specific situation and needs.


Mediation is a productive and healthy way of resolving conflicts between two or more parties with tangible results. It can help couples resolve marital issues, support parents struggling to raise a family, or offer guidance to an individual coping with a life transition, the most significant of which is dissolving a marriage on mutually acceptable and amicable terms.

Collaborative Family Law

Collaborative Law is a legal process enabling couples who have decided to separate or end their marriage to work with a coordinated group of family professionals to meet the specific needs of both parties without the threat of litigation.
