Professional Family Mediator | (480) 999-7399

After witnessing the devastating impact of acrimonious litigation on individuals and families, I committed myself to helping people resolve disputes through mediation. I have seen, time and time again, how mediation allows people to move forward in the most positive way possible. Where children are involved, they often receive the most benefit from mediation — parents working together in a more cooperative and less stressful process makes a world of difference.

Mediation is a life passion for me. By combining my understanding of conflict resolution with my understanding of family court, I help people find peace in their lives, and it is an honor to do so.
