Collaborative Law is a process that is safe for you and that honours and protects your family. My guiding principle is to use perception, good judgment and patience in assisting you within this safe process.

I have always focused on resolving disputes out of court. I was one of the original twelve members who established the Victoria collaborative group and have served on the group’s Executive for a number of years. I am currently the Executive’s Member at Large.

I have a commitment to promoting Collaborative practice in all areas, to my own ongoing education and to team work to support families. A Family Law Mediator since 1997, I have an active mediation practice and have completed Advanced Civil Mediation Training.

Outside of the office, I practice Yoga, read widely, cook for my vegetarian family, and am a board member for Family Services of Greater Victoria, a local family-serving non-profit organization.
