About my Practice

Grow through what you go through.

Your divorce is as individual as you and your marriage.

Finding the right support for your unique situation can make all the
 difference in how your marriage ends and your new life begins.  How do you feel during the process?  How sound are the decisions you’re making?  How will your family be long after the legal part of the divorce is complete?

At Bridge-ing, we want you to have a place to go for the information and support you need.  For some, this might be pretty 
straightforward; for others, it may call for some innovation.

Women deserve to be empowered and valued.

Services I Offer

Not long ago, someone said to me, “it sounds like you want to change the way divorce works.” While that comment was made 
in pretty apparent disbelief and was, perhaps, a little bit mocking, my answer was entirely sincere. Yes. I want to change the
 way divorce works.

We customize services based on the divorce process you choose – collaborative, mediation, or litigation – and the support you need.

  • Pre-divorce preparation
  • Assembling your team and utilizing professionals appropriately
  • Thinking-partner and strategic planning
  • Navigating high-conflict situations
  • Financial coaching; before, during, and after divorce
