My focus is to bring peace to families. I assist divorcing clients, couples, and families reorder their lives, and preserve peace and respect within the family. The emphasis of my practice is peacemaking--keeping clients out of court and involved in resolving their own disputes whenever possible, through collaborative practice, mediation, cooperative divorce, and the most recently through completion of training to become an eldercare mediation coordinator of Probate Dept. of the Orange County Superior Court.
