I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and work with children, teenagers, adults and families. My specialties include grief and loss after a death, anxiety and depression, dealing with cancer, and general family and life transition.

In this role, I am a neutral professional who assists parties in dispute to conduct a fair negotiation designed to resolve relevant issues that impede the achievement of a settlement agreement. My goal is to achieve 100% agreement on a fair and equitable settlement in order to help my clients avoid the costly litigation that contested divorce and child custody cases can take in court.

My role is to work with you to facilitate your goals, whatever they may be…
