Divorce mediation and collaborative practice make divorce less awful
I am a licensed attorney, mediator, collaborative professional and certified divorce financial anaylst. I can help you with all aspects of your divorce, if you are looking for a consensual process where you maintain control over your family matters and stay out of court. I can guide you through this difficult passage with the help of other like-minded professionals as necessary.

Sound better than a traditional divorce?
In a traditional divorce you are not encouraged to work together to come to understandings about yourself and your spouse that will enhance your future relationship. Even if there will be no future relationship, what about the anger and bitterness you hold? Wouldn't it be better to resolve that in your mind, body and spirit - for your own good? Mediation can help your family through the very emotional and difficult process.
