Background Experience

While I am fortunate enough to have been blessed with a successful marriage, I have lived closely with divorce my entire life. As a child of divorced parents, I always have been a keen observer of familial and financial dynamics. As an adult and an attorney, this led me to a lifetime as an informal advisor to many friends and colleagues going through the divorce process. Realizing my passion for helping individuals and families in transition led me to re-enter the legal field in the practice of Family Law.

As a Family Lawyer, I recognized from a professional standpoint that there was something missing in the process. I envisioned how much more efficient divorce could be if individuals had better overall guidance. Time and time again, in both my personal and professional lives, I observed people putting too much of their emotional and financial resources toward unproductive use, making divorce more overwhelming, confusing and expensive than it needed to be.

As a good listener and a born pragmatist, I discovered that others had identified the enormous value in this type of coaching and I pursued certification as a Divorce Coach.

It is my personal mission to help clients move through a difficult transition with greater direction and dignity, navigating a clear path to the life they want for themselves and their families.
