You have a choicE: Litigate, Collaborate, or Mediate.

I offer mediation for all types of disputes, including divorces, child custody, parenting time modifications, and more.  I also assist people through the Collaborative Divorce process by acting as the Collaborative Divorce Facilitator.

What Is Mediation?

You do not always need a court hearing or trial to solve your dispute. Mediation is a process in which I act as a neutral third party to guide you and the other party toward an agreed resolution. I have been a mediator for fourteen years, and have completed approximately 600 mediations. My goal is always to help you reach a resolution without a hearing. Recently a new mediation guide was released and I strive for the most professional, ethical quality for your case.

What is Collaborative Law?

The Collaborative Law process is vastly different from the usual model of litigation in Court actions. With Collaborative Law, you are represented by an attorney, and a Collaborative Facilitator guides you toward a resolution with a series of meetings, each of which have a specific topic.
