1987

I have been a member of the Ontario and BC Bar since 1990. I began mediating in 1987 while attending law school. Prior to law school, I obtained an social work degree and I am still a Registered Social Worker.

I devote a great deal of attention in my mediation practice to family matters. I recognize that families navigating their way through separation and divorce are in turmoil and I endeavour to provide much-needed guidance to help them make the necessary arrangements to move forward. I assist parties in all aspects of potential concern whether it be plans involving children, division of property or other financial issues.

My mediation style offers parties a solid commitment to neutrality and fairness. I create an environment where everyone has a voice and one in which there is a full exchange of information leading to successful and positive resolutions.

I hold dual professional qualifications in law and social work. I am accredited by the Law Society of British Columbia as a Family Law Mediator and I am a Certified Comprehensive Family Mediator (Family Mediation Canada). I am currently a Roster Mediator of the Family and Civil Mediation Rosters through Mediate BC and a member of the Child Protection Mediation Roster through the British Columbia Ministry of the Attorney General. I have over 20 years experience in mentoring students in family and other areas of mediation.
