Divorce is one of the most stressful events in one’s life. This is the time when you need to make the most difficult and important decisions for yourself and for your children. Each year thousands of lives are disrupted and destroyed by the negative effects of a litigated divorce. However, there is another way!

Through Divorce Mediation, many frictions can be avoided, thousands of dollars can be saved, and your relationships with your children may not be broken. I am committed to helping you reach a sensible agreement that is fair and free of biases. I firmly believe that divorce mediation is the most positive and constructive path you can take in the divorce process.
