I have had extensive training in mediation and collaborative training, in addition to continuing
education in all areas of substantive family law. I hold a Masters Degree in childhood education,
and coupled with 4 years of teaching elementary school, have special insight and skills into the
needs, development, and perspectives of children. I have the ability and skills to deal with
difficult personalities and complex situations.

My goal in collaborative law is to develop options and solutions outside the range of options
available to the court, retain the clients’ ability to fully participate in all decisions reached and to
achieve settlements that will resolve immediate issues and likely future issues in a satisfactory
way to both clients.
