I’ve worked with many types of people with a wide range of issues and concerns during the course of my career, including (but not limited to): children, adolescents, and adults; couples and families; and people struggling with addiction and related substance use problems. My passion, though, is working with people who are struggling with any and all phases of divorce, from couples considering separation to people learning to co-parent effectively. I am a trained and experienced parent coordinator, and I take a collaborative approach in all my work.
I am a trained divorce coach, mental health neutral, and parent coordinator. I approach any relational work I do in my practice collaboratively, as I believe this approach to be the most effective in encouraging long-term positive outcomes for divorced couples and co-parents.
