Mediation & Coaching

Creating pathways through separation and divorce.

Helping families navigate the minefields, mystery, and magic of co-parenting.


Beginning the Journey

"A successful coparent relationship requires a willingness to begin the journey into your future, so your child can move forward into theirs. The breakup of the family can be difficult for your child, and they're going to need a cheerleader.
I’ll help you design a parenting plan that creates a child centered pathway towards their new normal and offer coparent coaching to support you on the journey.
