Family Roster Mediator Details

I am a lawyer and family law mediator practicing with over 10 years of experience in the area of family law. Through my practice, I have watched families go through a separation and divorce, in doing so, exhaust themselves emotionally and financially. The court process can be very expensive and time consuming and it can destroy families because of increased animosity and stress.

The reality is that most separating couples do not have the option of severing ties with their former spouse. After the separation and divorce is complete, parents still need to talk about their children’s doctor appointments, attend soccer games and sit beside one another years down the road at their child’s graduation ceremony. As often as possible, I try to help parties separate without destroying their ability to communicate with one another for the benefit of their kids.

As a mediator, I help families and couples resolve their disputes and negotiate quality agreements. I provide cost-effective and timely services for a complete range of family law issues, including adoptions, cohabitation issues, pre-marital issues and separation and divorce issues, like parenting, child support, spousal support and property and financial issues. I have significant mediation training and family law experience and I use this knowledge to support and facilitate effective discussions between couples to solve their immediate family law issues and preserve existing relationships.

Because I am also a lawyer, I can simplify the process for many by providing legal information in a mediation session and drafting a final separation agreement that reflects the terms agreed upon in mediation.

I obtained a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Calgary in 2001 and a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Victoria in 2005. I have practiced family law exclusively since I was called to the British Columbia bar in 2006. I am member of the Law Society of British Columbia and an accredited Family Law Mediator through the Law Society of British Columbia. I am also a member of the following organizations:
