I'm passionate about my role as a Family Mediator helping families resolve issues without going to court. I'm a Certified Financial Planner with over 35 years of experience helping people with their money concerns and guiding them to create realistic solutions. I am a charter member of the BC Collaborative Roster Society working with Lawyers and Coaches as a Financial Neutral. When the IACP had their Annual Forum, hosting the world in Vancouver, I was one of the 6 people who organized that incredible event.

In mediation I work together with Lawyers, Coaches and Child Specialists to provide the best supports for families moving through transition into a new reality. I am passionate about helping families avoid the expensive and devastating experience of conflict in court.

When couples discuss financial matters, it brings up all kinds of issues in the best of times. At a time of separation or dispute, emotions run high making it difficult to think clearly. I listen to your concerns and questions.

Together we will create one clear Financial Document for our discussions in Mediation. If there are gaps in your understanding, I will teach you the rules that apply to your specific situation. This clarity gives you a good foundation for making confident money decisions and a solid agreement within Mediation. Then you see your lawyers for Independent Legal Advice and Drafting your Agreement.

Clients have greatly benefited form my knowledge, wisdom and compassion. I've gained wisdom through a life of changes and challenges, divorce and the serious diagnosis of a loved one, so I really do understand your worries.

My ideal clients need to make significant financial decisions at a time of life altering transitions and want to keep their families out of court.
