Biographical Info

Practice governed by kindness and compassion

Over 25 years of experience

Fluent in 3 languages

After many years of practice I became deeply disillusioned with the adversarial process which I view as ineffective, expensive and failing to respond to the idiosyncrasy of family conflict.

My passion for peacemaking has taken me to teach and present on collaborative law in Spain, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Uruguay and Panama and I will continue to promote this model of dispute resolution as more effective and less costly but most importantly best suited for family disputes.

In order to assist families with their conflict resolution, I have become certified in:

a)  Elder Mediation (Specializing in conflict resolution involving older adults)

b)  Parenting Coordination (Assisting high conflict families with parenting issues)

c)  Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (Helping clients resolve conflict with more presence and less stress)

I also became certified as a Listening Professional (International Listening Association) which enables me to truly understand the clients’ need to be heard. I am currently vice-president elect of this organization.

I consider it my mission to educate parents on the destructive impact of conflict on the health of their children and to empower them to make the decisions based on their family unique experience and profound love for their children.

Remember: do not litigate but rather agree to collaborate!
