Over the past 13 years, I have developed a subspecialty in providing services for families in the midst of divorce. Beginning with high conflict co-parent counseling and parenting coordination, the idea of collaborative divorce as a saner and emotionally safer way for families to transition was a natural extension of my practice. I have been a pioneer as the New York Collaborative Law Group incorporated mental health and financial professionals and evolved into the New York Association for Collaborative Professionals. I served on the board of NYACP from 2006-2013, and have been very active in growing our practice group, developing excellence in our practice and creating community knowledge and acceptance of Collaborative Practice. I especially enjoy training new collaborative practitioners on our practice groups' training team!
