Profession(s)Mental Health Professional
I assist clients bring their best selves forward to make agreements which will serve the needs of the entire family. In this time of pain and confusion, I help clients to manage complex emotions, identify needs and goals, and communicate in a clear and productive manner. I believe that the interdisciplinary team approach to collaborative practice offers clients a support system that optimizes the family’s ability move through this difficult transition and to create a new family system (when a couple has children), to allow for growth and healing in the future.
My work as a collaborative divorce coach is informed by my experience of working for sixteen years as a family law paralegal. My legal experience, combined with my experience and training as a mental health professional, give me a unique perspective in working with collaborative divorce clients.
