Description of Practice

I am a family mediator at Parting Waters Mediation. I specialize in separation, divorce, post-divorce, co-parent, and nontraditional family mediation. I mediate issues involving finances, property, custody, parenting time, siblings, and other family related matters.

Professional Background

I have a masters degree in conflict resolution and years of experience training in family mediation, both as an intern and mentee. I was in private practice for four years before partnering with Linda Scher in 2019 and co-creating Parting Waters Mediation. I am uniquely qualified to guide and support families facing strained and/or difficult decision making.


University of Oregon Masters in Conflict Resolution


I believe that mediation provides an opportunity to heal, empower, balance, and practice essential life-enhancing communication skills. I love helping to iron out the details that come with redefining a family. I believe peace starts in our homes and that mediation is a powerful means to that end.


My fee is $180 per hour
