Who I Am
As an out and proud member of the LGBT community for my entire adult life, I’m passionate about helping others navigate the difficult process of divorce. I have tailored my approach to better serve the unique and complex needs of the LGBT community so that each party walks away feeling satisfied with the outcomes we’ve achieved.
My goal for mediation is to understand the nuances of your family structure so that together, we can find the best resolution possible when settling on the terms of your divorce.
I’m a California State-trained Divorce Mediator with a degree in Business Law and more than 20 years professional experience with California family law. I’m an expert in CA state rules and regulations concerning divorce, and I’m registered with the state and certified to prepare and process the paperwork necessary to finalize your settlement agreement.
I work with divorcing LGBT couples and their families to negotiate a mutually beneficial settlement. I always aim to create a safe and respectful environment for effective communication. Once mediation concludes, each party should feel satisfied with the outcomes, knowing they had a say.
During my career, I’ve gained crucial insight into handling many of the complex situations affecting LBGT couples. I’m sensitive to the fact that each person and situation is unique, and I aim to be a compassionate and non-judgmental third party. I’m here to listen to you, go at a pace you’re comfortable with, prioritize your children (aging relatives, pets, etc.), and help you avoid the harsh, drawn-out, one-size-fits-all, experience of going to court.
