I have been relationship coaching for over 30 years, commencing when I co-founded a nonprofit organization emphasizing responsible fatherhood. I also interned as a court mediation with Mediation and Conciliation Court Services, Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, where I was fortunate to be mentored by some of the innovative pioneers who originated court-mandated mediation in California. After working inside the family court system and witnessing first hand the abusive adversarial system I became a passionate advocate for alternative approaches.

I am a collaboratively trained divorce coach. I help individuals identify and separate emotional and behavioral roadblocks that interfere with making sound decisions. I join in the process of discovering viable constructive solutions.

With over 30 years of training and experience I am uniquely qualified to provide you and your family with the encouragement, support and guidance needed during this transition.
