Excellent in creating a future commitment with yourself and others
When I was recommended to the Connecticut Center for Family Mediation I was hesitant due to the circumstances that I was going through with my ex. We were referred to Rabbi Andrew Hetchman to work together and form a parenting plan, of which all seemed to be a far-fetched idea in the first place. But throughout the months working the the Rabbi, I can honestly say that without his guidance and unbiased perspective on our issues as individuals and as co-parents truly enlightened us and aided in a deeper understanding for what is in the best interest of the children and ourselves. Ironically, throughout our progress with the parenting plan, Rabbi Hetchman gave light to our true feelings for one another and after a year of separation, my ex and I were working to be back together as a couple and family unit again. We are still together and still seeing the Rabbi, and I have never been happier and neither has my children. I'd highly recommend anyone to use this facility.

Andrew Hechtman
I have worked firsthand with Andrew Hechtman and I can say unequivocally that he was able to get results where many have failed before him. Our case was a particularly egregious one, fraught with unique difficulties. He has made all the difference. It takes a special talent that Andrew Hechtman possesses to succeed where all other avenues have failed. He came up with brilliant compromises that others had overlooked on more than one occasion. He is endlessly patient, and a kind gentleman and family man. It's wonderful when a person finds a true calling in which they are specifically talented. If you find yourself in an unfortunate position and are in need of quick and helpful results, do not waste time and money elsewhere. Run to this practice first! You'll be so relieved to finally find the end of the dark tunnel.

Professional, supportive
I am honored to write a review for Andy. He has been very supportive and helpful during a rough divorce collaboration for me. Andy made me feel very comfortable and I was able to go through a very difficult decision making process because of his support. He was professional and empathetic through the whole process and made me feel like I was speaking with a close friend or family member. I would definitely recommend Andy to anyone going through circumstances. I met with a different Counselor for marriage counselling and met with Andy for making a parenting plan for my daughter. Sometimes I feel that if we had met Andy for marriage counseling we might have been able to make our marriage work. Thanks for a job well done Andy. Keep it up! Ps: Andy brings with him a rich background of his personal experiences and shared those instances in the counseling sessions making the sessions comfortable and interesting.

The best way to come to an agreement/resolve a dispute
Divorce and co-parenting issues are very difficult. It's a time of miscommunication, fear for the future and sometimes even paranoia. I went through litigation in connection with my divorce and then worked with Andy Hechtman after that to resolve issues the court didn't cover. I know that had we gone to Andy instead of going through the court, we would have wound up with a better settlement for both of us, a better understanding of each other and better communication going forward. Plus, we would have saved a lot of money. I highly recommend working with Andy to mediate disputes involving anything having to do with divorce - before, during and after. He doesn't take sides and works through walls, fears and emotions to get both parties to a solution that benefits them and most especially, their children. Anytime I hear a friend or acquaintance talking about going to court, I immediately suggest seeing Andy first, especially if they have kids.

Very Effective
This place was my last hope as I felt the GAL & court system had let me down & I was the only one burdened with keeping my daughter safe. I highly recommend trying this facility even if you are skeptical. My life is much less stressful and co- parenting is much more manageable because of this company's mediation process. Now a co- parenting relationship has been built and my daughter is flourishing because of it.
