I help people turn divorce into a healing process. Through collaborative practice, we professionals and our clients work to maximize the wellbeing of each family member during and after the divorce. With children, we focus on the 'post-divorce parental alliance.' We support positive changes in people's lives. I believe that my clients know best what they and other family members need. Given accurate information and support, they find their way forward. By listening to others and speaking my truth, I encourage individual and family healing. After 35 years as a family law lawyer and mediator, I am excited to work with people to turn divorce into a healing process.
