Collaborative Practice Group Membership


Collaborative Divorce Professionals of Roanoke

Southwest Virginia Collaborative Divorce Professionals

Collaborative Services


I have provided counseling services to children, teens, adults, and families adjusting to separation and divorce for many years. Collaborative Practice enables divorcing couples to respectfully and effectively communicate and work together to co-parent their children and to make the best decisions possible for their families. This model allows the divorcing couple to maintain a sense of empowerment and focus on the future rather then then the past. I have been team trained in the Collaborative Process since 2008 and serve on the education committe for Collaborative Professionals of Roanoke.
