Membership Type: IACP
Profession(s): Lawyer, Mediator
My goal is to support spouses in resolving their marital interests and differences civilly, respectfully, with integrity and compassion, and with commitment to the well-being, both emotionally and financially, of their children and their family. I encourage spouses to take responsibility for their actions, their choices and their decisions, both throughout the divorce resolution proces itself and looking out into the future regarding their interactions between themselves and their co-parenting of their children. The Collaborative Process, I believe, offers the opportunity for transformation in the way spouses and their children will nurture, support and contribute to each other long after the divorce.
Area(s) of Practice: Collaborative Law, Family Law, Mediation
