Hello and welcome to Pathways Family Coaching!  My name is Monique Mason and I am a certified Co-Parenting & Reunification Coach.  I coach parents who are struggling to remain a part of their children's lives as a result of high-conflict divorce to more effectively communicate with their ex, finally find success in family court, and recover the strong bond they have with their children...all without compromising who they really are.

I took a very long and winding road to coaching.  My first career was as a Mechanical Engineer working both in heavy industry and in an engineering design office for almost 14 years.  I have since followed my desire to live an entrepreneurial lifestyle and started 2 small businesses, one of which I sold to follow my one true passion...this passion...helping rejected parents navigate their way through grief and empowering them to heal their family trauma so their children fold back into their lives.

How does one become a Co-Parenting and Reunification Coach anyway?  It's a pretty specialized area!  Well, I completed my training at the Conscious Co-Parenting Institute in California, who now boasts having Dr. Childress as their Director of Psychology.

Why is Coaching My Passion?

I'll let you in on a little secret I kept to myself for many years...I am divorced and my son has not wanted a relationship with me for YEARS.  I know what it's like to feel isolated, ashamed, judged and misunderstood.  I begged psychologists and the courts to acknowledge what was happening to my family.  I watched as my son's innocence and childhood were stripped away.  I've seen the pain that he carries as an adult.

I have struggled with the aftermath of a high-conflict divorce for over 18 years.  I hit my rock bottom.  AND...I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and found my way through the anger and grief on a journey of self-discovery, understanding and compassion to a place of peace and determination.

I believe that anything is possible.  I have witnessed miracles.  My greatest honor as a coach is guiding you back to your child's heart, regardless of where you are in the process.
