About my Practice

Divorce is challenging and can feel like a lonely and confusing endeavor in the best of circumstances.  These issues are magnified and made more complex when faced with concerns regarding how to best care for and support a special needs child and/or a child who identifies as transgender or non-binary.

I specialize in providing a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space to help clients:

  • Find clarity around what they want and what is best for their children, before, during and after a separation or divorce;
  • Discern how to best support themselves and their family through this transition and after;
  • Identify their best possible outcomes so that they can best navigate their divorce process, advocate for themselves and their children, and lay the foundation for building the future they want; and
  • Redefine themselves and move forward after their divorce process is completed.
Services I Offer

My sessions are offered virtually through Zoom videoconferencing, telephone, or other platform, depending on individual needs and availability.  Divorce Coaching Services are offered nationwide and are not limited by geographic location.

  • Discerning whether to separate or divorce and the implications for the children and the family

Background Experience

I am a Certified Divorce Coach, Certified Transition and Recovery Coach, Attorney Licensed in New York State (Attorney Registration Number 2981991), Licensed Master Social Worker in New York State (License No. 101083), and Mediator.  I grew up in Webster Groves, Missouri, and currently reside in New York City.  I am a divorced co-parent to two teenagers.  I have professional training and personal experience with separation and divorce, addiction in family members, gender diversity, and neurodiverse children.

Before starting my own mediation practice, I was an associate attorney at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP and Wollmuth, Maher & Deutsch LLP.  After taking time off from the practice of law to parent my two children, I obtained a master’s degree from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.  My field of practice was Child Welfare:  Children, Youth and Families, an area devoted to providing the protection, assistance, and environment most necessary to promote a child’s well-being and full participation in family and community life.  After directly experiencing the value of mediation through my own divorce process, and understanding the large emotional and financial toll litigation can have on litigants and their families, I combined my areas of expertise to assist divorcing or separating couples and their families through this difficult process.  In addition, I became a Certified Divorce Coach and Certified Transition and Recovery Coach after noticing significant gaps in services for people who are contemplating separation or divorce or who are already moving through one of those processes and need additional information and support to navigate it successfully and in a cost-effective manner.
