It is never easy when a significant relationship comes to a end. A separation and /or divorce can leave you feeling exhausted, stressed and anxious about the changes that lie ahead and the decisions that ultimately need to be made. All of this decision making can be quite overwhelming.

If you have children, then separation and/or divorce can be even more complicated. Most couples still have to co-parent their children and communicate with each other about important events and decisions in their children's lives.

As a family mediator I can help you to identify and make decisions about issues that are important to you. These may include decisions about your children, financial support, family assets, communication issues, and whatever else you need to talk about. I will help you to resolve your differences and come to an agreement that is fair and allows you to confidently move forward. My focus, as a mediator, is to help you to make the best decisions possible for you and your family.

I thoroughly enjoy working with people, and I want to help you to put the stress and anxiety of separation and/or divorce behind you. I provide a safe, comfortable environment in which parties can talk, share information and find good solutions. I carefully prepare for each family mediation; I strive to understand the complexities underlying each relationship, and I provide a fair and balanced approach to each client.

I have an extensive background in working with individuals, families and organizations, and I bring diverse experience from the education, non-profit and the social services sectors to my mediation practice. I also enjoy working with individuals and families from many ethnic/cultural backgrounds and conduct mediations through interpreters.

In addition to my work as a mediator, I work as a restorative justice facilitator, coach and trainer.
