Values:

I believe that when we feel truly safe to express our emotions and experience of the world, big changes can happen--in our lives and in the lives of those we are connected to. I will never pretend to be the expert on what is right for you. Rather, I will provide a safe space for you to share your experiences and your values, and help you find the clarity and answers you already possess.  

Professional Background:

I am a licensed professional counselor associate, as well as a trained mediator with over 10 years of experience in mediation, including separation/divorce/co-parenting/custody issues and family coaching.

I specialize in working with high-conflict couples, families, and groups around sensitive issues. I also work with individuals who desire to learn skills for more effective communication in their personal and professional lives. 

I have 15 years of non-profit services experience, focusing on the areas of community-building, domestic violence awareness and prevention, and conflict resolution. I have provided a variety of trainings for organizations and community groups in the areas of conflict resolution, mediation, and productive dialogue, as well as facilitated discussions for boards of directors, leadership teams, staff and volunteer groups.
