My practice is dedicated to helping couples divorce in ways that preserve the integrity of the family and the mental health of children. As both a coach and child specialist, my role is to helpt the grownups navigate the tumultuous waters of separation and disengagement, with an eye toward understanding their interests in a robust future that all members of the family can live with peacefully. I bring to the work nearly 20 years of experience as a child psychologist and family therapist, as well as eight years of experience as a forensic custody evaluator.
