My practice is devoted to collaborative practice, mediation, private judging and other appropriate dispute resolution as I believe that most people wish to resolve conflict amicably. My goal is to provide compassionate and knowledgeable guidance to assist people in reaching a well-informed and mutually acceptable agreement. My commitment to Collaborative Practice is reflected in my leadership roles in our local community and the co-authorship of a practice manual for collaborative practitioners. I was on the Board of Directors of IACP for 6 years and the 2013 President.
