Collaborative Practice is my passion. I enjoy helping clients through the difficult transition of divorce using the interdisciplinary Collaborative Process. Our motto is 'Helping Resolve Family Conflict with Heart' I also enjoy teaching professionals to become collaborative lawyers, family coaches and financial specialists so we can work toward the tipping point that Collaborative Practice becomes mainstream.
