Amity Consulting was developed by Chandler Hoffman, Psy.D. to assist individuals and families considering or going through divorce and family reorganization. Amity Consulting was conceived with the intention to improve the circumstances of families going through divorce by offering consultation, psychotherapy, and mediation. Dr. Hoffman acts as the principle consultant and provides the direct services and educational trainings for our clients.

He is a skilled mediator and acts as a divorce coach and a child specialist in the collaborative divorce process. His psychotherapy practice focuses on couples, families, children and adolescents.
