This directory of Collaborative professionals in Edmonton and area provides the quickest and easiest way to find the qualified professionals you need to obtain a divorce or separation without going to court and needing to deal with all the associated costs and stress.
No two people will need the same support — you may need a collaboratively trained divorce lawyer and a financial planner, another couple may need a family specialist for counselling services and a divorce coach. Yet another couple may just need a family law lawyer who knows how to help a couple through a collaborative divorce.
Divorce Coaches are licensed therapists who have specialized training in the area of divorce/separation. They help clients address intense emotional issues that often create barriers in settling disputes during this challenging time. They will assist the individual by providing them with resources, education, and information, while helping develop positive stress management, effective communication, and conflict-resolution skills. Divorce Coaches can also assist with clarifying the individual’s needs, interests, and concerns to prepare them to advocate for themselves in team meetings. This keeps the process moving forward, but also supports the development of long-term healthy coping as the family continues to live in two-households.

I’ve been a lawyer since 2008 and practicing exclusively in family law since 2010.

If you’re separating from your partner, whether married or not, you already know it’s stressful. You shouldn’t need to be stressed about working with a lawyer. I treat all my clients with respect and in a non-judgmental way. I give the client service that I would want and expect from a family lawyer.

I regularly assist clients with a broad range of issues including common law separation, divorce, property division including division with complex corporate or business interests, child and spousal support issues (even where income isn’t necessarily clear cut) and parenting. In my career, I’ve mostly been in private practice, but have also worked as counsel at the Edmonton Law Courts in the Family Law Information Centre. In that role, I helped individuals without a lawyer of their own navigate the Court system.
Please feel free to call me direct. I am more than happy to chat with you on the phone so that you can decide whether you’d like to come into the office to meet in person.
When going through a Collaborative Family Law (CFL) process, it is important to have a team of professionals to support both parties in reaching a fair and equitable settlement. One key member of this team is the neutral financial professional.
