You can divorce with the peace of mind knowing that you can preserve your family and bank account
Dr. James E. Walton, Ph.D., is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Family Divorce Specialist and Collaborative Divorce Coach. Dr. Walton has been working with families in the Los Angeles area for the past 26 years. He assists divorcing couples in managing the upsetting emotions that result during the trauma of divorce. He guides divorcing couples into having productive and beneficial conversations that lead to agreements.  

During a divorce, the emotional forces that caused the breakdown of the relationship are still present, active, and frequently worsen. These unregulated emotions can create blocks to agreements costing the couple more money, time, and heartache than they had planned. When this occurs, the children are not spared injury from the anger and retaliation. Dr. Walton has experience in breaking impasses and moving the process towards agreement.  

Dr. Walton can assist in preventing damaging counter productive behavior and calm down the emotions so that the couple can think clearly, respectfully, and reasonably. He can assist you in communicating with your former spouse, attorney, and team accurately so that your thoughts, actions, and decisions are effective. This will allow the process of negotiating your divorce to successfully move forward. His goal is to get you across the finish line and achieve a divorce with the peace of mind knowing that you can preserve your family and your bank account. He is with you each step of the way.

Dr. Walton can work with you and your family to create a parenting plan that eases the stress for the entire family while assisting you in acquiring the necessary skills to co-parent effectively. If you have children, you will know each other for the rest of your lives. How you divorce will set the course for how you work as co-parents with your children into the future. He helps to ensure that you move in the right direction.

Dr. Walton’s work in Divorce Mediation began in 1997 assisting families in resolving conflicts around issues of division of property, child and spousal support and parenting agreements while assisting them in obtaining a legal divorce in place of litigation.

He is active on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association (LACFLA) and serves as the Administrator for Continuing Education Units for professionals licensed by the Board of Behavioral Sciences.  He is the co-chair of the Advanced Training Program for LACFLA. He has led professional mental health trainings for LACFLA and at taught coursework at the Collaborative Practice California (CPcal) annual collaborative law conference and is a statewide speaker for CPcal on the topics of Bias and Diversity.  

He is a frequent guest lecturer for collaborative law classes at UCLA, Loyola law School and Southwestern Law School, and is a volunteer co-mediator and divorce coach at Loyola Law School.

About Dr. Jim
The Dr. Walton Series

These are five of Dr. Walton's albums in his series that are most beneficial for people going through a divorce.  Dr. Walton has created an amazingly effective series of audio programs based on over 20 years of experience that is unlike any other on the market today.  His years of experience on the radio as host of Shrink Rap and frequent guest appearances on television have gone into making this audio series as entertaining as it is informative.

Dr. Jim specializes in helping people unlock their full potential to live happier, more satisfying and in control lives by combining cutting-edge psychotherapy techniques with the effectiveness of his award winning clinical hypnosis. 
Call today to set up a free office consultation for further information on Divorce Counseling in Los Angeles.
He will guide you through releasing the blocks and limiting beliefs that have kept you bound to self-defeating patterns and motivate you to achieve the personal changes you've always wanted.

Here's what he has to say about this series: 

"Over 20 years of clinical experience has gone into the making of The Dr. Walton Self-Help Series.  Going back over two decades, I have pulled from my private practice those therapeutic interventions and hypnosis treatments that worked most effectively for my patients.  I now present them to you in the most comprehensive audio series on the market today. 

Experience has shown me that when people are given understanding about an issue from a psychological perspective and then given the tools and strategies to change their behaviors in combination with the immediate effectiveness of hypnosis it has a synergistic effect that can assist in achieving their results more quickly." 

How the albums work:

Dr. Jim's powerful hypnosis treatment creates a highly receptive alpha state that works together with the unconscious mind to help you experience a greater sense of your personal power and self-control.

If you program your unconscious mind to have a focused, supportive, positive outlook, you can reach any goal you aspire to.  Dr. Walton's award winning self-help series can help you achieve that focus and get faster results.

Dr. Jim was awarded "Best Album of the Year" in self-help from the prestigious JPF International Music Awards.  All of the quality and expertise that earned him that award is found in every one of his self-help albums.  Download one right now and gain the benefit today!

Healing from Grief & Finding Peace in Your Life
by Dr. James E. Walton, Ph.D.
Dear Dr. Walton,

"I have found that all of the clients I have had listen to your CD have had a 50% - 70% immediate reduction in their anxiety symptoms. I have personally used your CD's for over 5 years and have found them so helpful I have bought more.  Clearly, I believe in the power of this technique.

I have listened to several 'free' self-hypnosis CD's opnline and had the clietnts I work with try to find free ones they liked, but it always turns out the same, they don't like the voice or the images as much, or it just doesn't seem to work as well."
