What kind of divorce do you want?

  • Do you want to make the transition as healthy as possible for yourselves and your children?
  • Do you aspire to speak and act from your highest self at a time when you feel your worst?
  • Do you want a lawyer who is a wise counsel instead of a hired gun?
  • Are you open to creating solutions that meet the needs of the whole family?
  • Do you want to make decisions from a place of safety and relative calm, rather than from anger, humiliation and fear?
  • Do you prefer a deeper resolution rather than a shallow peace?
  • Are you open to learning more about yourself and growing through this transition?

Difficult Times


Divorce is difficult, complicated, emotional,

terrifying and draining. Dona made the process

tolerable and understanding. She was patient

and extremely helpful in assisting us to complete

this difficult process in an efficient manner. She

helped us to be accountable but was patient and

kind through the process. The court system is

complicated and intimidating. Dona made the

mediation process simple and straight forward.

I would highly recommend her to anyone facing



Kari, Mediation Client


Dona was the perfect mediator for our situation. She was compassionate and focused, and met our budget by keeping us on task. We appreciated Dona's drive to maintain respect during the process, even beyond the walls of her office, and she led us through a very insightful exercise which had us identify our own goals for the divorce. She was recommended to us by another couple who had nothing but good things to say about her, and we in turn have recommended her to a couple of couples since.
