As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have provided counseling services to adults, children, couples and families, supporting clients across a broad range of complex and sensitive situations for over twenty five years. I believe that we all have great potential for personal understanding, growth and change throughout our life time. The end of a marriage is a transitional time for a family and can be especially challenging emotionally, economically and spiritually. It is my goal to provide positive support and guidance to families as they move through the process, create their goals and envision their new family structure.

As a Neutral Divorce Coach and a Neutral Child Specialist, I am committed to supporting couples and families through this transition to a new family structure that supports a healthy emotional adjustment for each family member. I have been a member of the Collaborative Law Institute since 2005. During that time I have actively trained with my colleagues and I have served on task forces to support the development of Collaborative Team Practice methods so we can provide the highest level of expertise to the families we are working with on our teams. I have served on the Board of Directors from 2008 through 2010.
