Description of Practice

I am a clinical psychologist with a background in family therapy, custody evaluation, and divorce mediation. I have been providing therapy services for individuals and families for the past 22 years.

My approach is grounded in family systems and cognitive-behavior theories, but above all I am interested in helping people achieve practical results. I am far more interested in understanding what makes each person unique than in applying theories rigidly or sorting people into established categories

My goal in mediation is to help parties clarify their disputes, communicate clearly, determine their needs and interests, consider options for settlement, and reach fair agreements. Parties are encouraged to enter mediation with ideas about their children and their children's needs and be prepared to negotiate with each other about these needs. Written agreements are prepared where appropriate or desired.

In general, mediation will be confidential. If a settlement is reached, I will provide the necessary paperwork to turn the agreement into a court order. If a settlement is not reached, I may make specific recommendations to the parties, but will not make recommendations to the courts.
