Professional Background

I am a former Child Support Officer with the Attorney General of Texas and a former small business owner.

Additionally, I pursue Continuing Education in this field on an ongoing basis. Please call me if you would like a consultation.


4+ year veteran of the Attorney General's Office Child Support Division where I conducted hundreds of mediations in the area of family law.

Private & Caring Facilitation. I am not an attorney. I am a mediator, a neutral third party who can help facilitate your agreement in a safe, private and confidential environment. I prefer to keep parties together throughout the mediation in order to promote an environment of communication and transformation. I believe that mediation is the best way for parties to resolve their disputes because they control the results.
