I work with individuals faced with life changing decisions during a period when emotional and financial concerns may seem overwhelming. As a trained collaborative professional, I will assist you in achieving the optimum agreement in your matter. I believe that by resolving matters in a respectful manner, parents may significantly reduce the impact of separation on their children and on themselves. I find it gratifying to work with clients who know that they are taking responsibility for the emotional and financial future of their family members and who are willing to develop skills through the collaborative process to work effectively with their former partner to co-parent their children.
