Divorce is a moment of crisis for many people. It also provides them with a choice: will they learn from the experience, or cast themselves as a victim? It is important for anybody going through a divorce or custody case to understand his or her part in the dispute.

Attorney and Counselor

For clients willing to learn and approach their crisis as an opportunity, Staci D. Giske can be more than a lawyer. She is an Attorney & Counselor in the truest sense of the word. She takes personal self-improvement very seriously and will work diligently with her clients to teach them ways to cope with their situation, grow though the experience, and have a positive outlook to move forward after the case is over.

I am not the attorney to stir up drama between clients so I can create more attorney fees. Besides the very bad karma associated with this type of practice, it also is against my personal belief system and the obligation I feel to “repair the world.”

Like the proverb says, there is a season and a time for everything, but not every case needs aggression and adversity. Few, if any, parties actually benefit from hiring a tough-as-nails lawyer. By coming in to a family law case with a “my way or the highway” perspective, those clients set themselves up for expensive failure. Almost no one gets exactly what they want if a divorce or custody dispute goes to trial, especially when children are involved. Staci D. Giske works with her clients to form a plan, viewing their legal situations within the context of their lives and desired outcomes.

Reiki and Holistic Divorce

As a Reiki Master, and a student of both the Enneagram and the Law of Attraction, Staci D. Giske works with a variety of models for personal self-improvement. Her personal goal is to help her clients heal throughout their legal processes.

I try to get my clients to see their spouse or situation as a lesson (for them) and personal growth opportunity not the “cause” of their “problems”. No one is stuck being a victim. Their spouse or the other party is also a flawed or wounded character. This doesn’t mean they have to accept the other’s behavior – just understand.

This takes different forms for different clients. For some, a holistic divorce involves looking at the bigger picture and seeing how a client’s behavior could affect his or her situation. For others, particularly in cases of abuse, it involves teaching clients to stand up for themselves and not allow their spouses to disrespect them.

Focusing on Positive Outcomes

In the context of Holistic Divorce, there is no such thing as “winning”, or “losing”. It is not about blame or revenge. Instead, Staci encourages her clients to focus their energy on learning what the divorce process can teach them about themselves, their spouses, and their children. By teaching them new co-parenting and coping strategies, Giske helps her clients to heal through the process. Her method goes beyond collaborative divorce – in which mediation replaces trial and experts are used to help resolve disputes. Her approach helps her clients learn techniques that will help them break free.
