My practice is built around supporting individuals and families who are going through separation, divorce &/or co-parenting issues. I am a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® and family mediator, and I love helping my clients navigate their way through the challenges that come with restructuring relationships. My life’s work has been dedicated to supporting children, youth and families to find practical solutions to life challenges. I have spent years helping families through conflict using mediation, coaching and other supportive strategies. I believe that many individuals and families can thrive during restructuring when they have adequate support.
As a divorce coach, I specialize in helping men and women leaving longer term relationships face the divorce process with courage, clarity, and hope that brighter days are indeed ahead. I love to help clients discover who they want to be in the next chapter of their lives as strong, independent, and resilient individuals. I feel honored to support my clients, walking along side them in their own divorce journey and beyond to discovering their next best self!
As a mediator, I work with clients who are going through separation, divorce &/or co-parenting challenges to find practical, affordable, and efficient solutions that reduce stress. My passion in this work is supporting co-parents to create effective parenting plans that keep their kids at the center, but out of the middle, and to be the best co-parents they can for their children.
I hold a special place in my heart for clients who are working through the grief and loss that accompanies divorce. A divorce is often accompanied by loss of hopes for what we wanted our family to be, a loss of relationships, and a loss or change of identity. I understand that the loss experiences of this life transition can be magnified by past losses we have gone through. I also understand the unique grief experiences that come with divorce for parents who have lost a child. I am a bereaved mom myself and I have experienced my own divorce. For clients who live this heartbreak, know that I see you and I feel deep compassion.
