Bio

I help you reach agreements in your divorce or separation by focusing on your values and priorities. You and your spouse or partner, with the help of collaborative professionals, can make better decisions about your futures.

I have been practicing family law for over 25 years and collaborative law for 22 of those years. I have been trained in the interdisciplinary collaborative team divorce method and have worked on team divorce cases. The collaborative process helps people make better decisions about their futures, create longer lasting and mutually acceptable settlements, and minimize the emotional and financial risks of divorce.
