As a psychotherapist in clinical practice, I bring over thirty years of experience in working with divorcing couples. My extensive background in change management, stress reduction, mediation and collaborative practice provides me with the necessary insight to assist couples in creating a successful post-divorce transition. In addition, I have spent over five years teaching classes at UCI extension in relationships and communication skills. My goal is to provide a safe environment for clients to go forward as individuals while preserving and enhancing their collective responsibilites as parents. I remain loyal in my commitment to the Collaborative divorce process, which allows couples to maintain their dignity and respect for one another, while protecting their children from the often destructive process of 'combat' divorce.

Comments: After thirty years of professional counseling and mediation experience, I have learned that divorce is the most painful emotional experience most people endure in their lifetime. Being a part of the collaborative team affords me the opportunity to function as 'air traffic controller', guiding the client to separate highly volatile emotions so that they do not interfere with sound decision making. My goal is to help couples develop a co-parenting plan that will WORK, by helping them to focus on the real issues of the future - not past angers and disappointments. My desire is to help couples turn issues into interests, as they learn new problem solving skills for conflict resolution and post-divorce parenting.
