My expertise in neuropsychology gives me insight into the brain's response to stress, loss and trauma and how emotions affect decision-making during difficult times like divorce. My own divorce gave me a deep understanding of what it's like to go through this transition. After divorcing, I trained in Collaborative Practice and Mediation - my piece of peace-building in the world. In my Collaborative Divorce practice I work as a Family Specialist/Divorce Coach and Child Specialist and bring a real appreciation of the impact of divorce on families and couples. As a clinical neuropsychologist trained in Discernment Counseling, Mediation, and Collaborative Divorce I works with people at all stages of contemplating or entering into the divorce process. I am co-chair of the Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce (CCND) Professional Development Committee and a Board and Executive Committee member.
