Life, Relationship and Family in Complex Times

My deep passion is engaging with people to meet life, family and relationship challenges with compassion, respect and opportunities to learn and grow.

Experience and compassion for individuals, couples and families

Life can be complex. I bring over 30 years of learning and clinical practice to resolving relationship or family struggles, parenting problems, stepfamily tensions, intergenerational challenges, and planning wills and estates.

Consensual Separation and Divorce

Many couples work together toward shared goals for the family post separation. I provide traditional, innovative and interdisciplinary services to support working together toward safe and stable resolutions to separation/divorce tasks.

High-Conflict Divorce Solutions

For some it is very difficult to restructure the family; sometimes court is involved. Independently and within interdisciplinary teams, I work to stabilize the family environment, protect the children and improve communication.


Over the years that I have been working with individuals, couple and families I have developed a special focus in what is often called ‘marital transitions’; that is everything from separation and divorce through to remarriage and stepfamily development.  I have found that good ideas are very useful for the public as well as for professionals.  I have enjoyed writing articles  for public education publications, professional publications and peer reviewed academic journals.
