Description of Practice

Child-Focused Solutions. Since 2008, I have dedicated my work to assisting families with their conflict process. I'm committed to reaching a wide audience of parents and professionals who are also committed to improving the lives of parents and children going through the divorce process.

I look forward to working with your family by offering cost-effective, goal-oriented, alternative court options. Whether you are in the process of separation, divorce or post-divorce, together we will develop a creative plan and parenting schedule that fits for your children’s needs.
