Profession(s)

Lawyer, Mediator

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.

Comments

I enjoy helping people change their lives for the better. I work with clients and colleagues whose overall goals are to create healthy people in healthy families. Finding and following through on common goals during a divorce requires flexibility, trust and vision on everyone's part. Working together, we focus on meeting the needs and interests of all family members, especially any children. Moving through divorce is like pregnancy and birth and can take about as long if not longer. In the first few months, nausea and vomiting are common. Later people feel uncomfortable and weighted down. Then during the most painful pushing, drugs can help people endure their pain. In the end, though, a new, precious and tender being shows up with the rest of their life in front of them.
