Join us each week as we feature charities and professionals who make a difference in our community. We cover a range of topics but always with an eye on what is best for the children and families in our community.

Deb Beacham/My Advocate Center
Founder, Executive Director
Deb Beacham as Co-host of Pro Advocate Radio often talks about the bold moves being made to help parents understand how to better transition through & out of conflict, meaning we help reduce stress for children, and preserve family time & resources for their benefit. This includes engaging professionals who will step up in legal, financial and in healthcare matters and insert common sense to help the family reach the best possible outcome. That is our definition of a true advocate. The need to educate the public about what to expect when seeking counsel, about what real advocacy looks and sounds like, and how to find the right guidance are core objectives for My Advocate Center.
Public education and transparency are key for improving safety, health, stability and outcomes for families and children. We also believe that giving talented, ethical professionals a stronger voice and engaging them in the conversation will go a long way toward creating more informed and empowered individuals and families.
Professionals who are like-minded are encouraged to connect and become a part of our Resource Directory. Please visit the Counsel for Change group page here on LinkedIn to learn more about our discussions. Our advisory panel reviews professionals to ensure certain standards are met. If you are focused on upholding ethics rules, professional duty, and are committed to helping children receive the best that both parents have to offer, let us know.
Our investigations, initiatives & strategies are also well suited to supporting government agencies in making necessary improvements to programs & services. It is important that these changes are made to better serve parents & children; but it is also possible to yield a positive economic return for each community & state.
MAC’s purpose in contributing to agencies & other organizations is to improve the divorce/child custody process in a way that leaves our communities stronger & better able to support the needs of children. We now have opportunities to lessen the impact of family violence, addiction & other dysfunction, while putting our financial resources to better use.
The bottom line is simple: when we help individuals or families resolve conflict safely and efficiently, they recover faster. When people – adults and children – can avoid loss or trauma, or recover faster from injury, they can focus on health, education, careers and on giving back to our community. We ALL win.

When it comes to guiding public policy to improve the process, and to helping parents navigate through high-conflict custody cases, no other collection of experts and resources is better positioned to give you clear and actionable insight.
We are always glad to hear your suggestions for future topics and experts, and feel free to send questions you would like asked during future interviews.
