Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
My practice encompasses mediation and Collaborative Law, which both emphasize clients' self-determination in parenting, finances, and support. Because of my years and depth of experience, I am comfortable with complex prenuptial situations and divorce-related financial situations and retirement issues. In each area, I want to provide compassionate help to clients during difficult times.


Trained as volunteer mediator by CCR in 1985 and have mediated ever since.


My approach to mediation is flexible, and in determining which approach to use in a given case, my focus is on figuring out, with the client(s), how I can best help the them get through this difficult time at a pace and with a result that is effective for them.


Each mediator has a different base rate, which may be adjusted or increased from time to time and in a particular case where circumstances warrant.
