Marcie Kraft

Marcie Kraft, MA, MS, JD, whether teaching, answering calls for the National Child Abuse Hotline, working for the Ventura County Superior Court as a Child Custody Recommending Counselor, or helping separated families as a private Child Custody Mediator/Parenting Plan Coordinator, has always been keenly aware of the importance of respectful communication. At a time in our society when it appears malevolent maltreatment of one another has gone mainstream, she is more firmly convinced than ever before of the importance of treating with respect even those with whom we disagree, and believes communicating respectfully is the key to a productive co-parenting relationship and to improving the lives of children.
