Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), I also serve as a neutral financial specialist for parties engaged in the Collaborative Divorce Process.

Professional Background

I have over twenty five years of experience as a financial professional, managing assets and analyzing real estate investment portfolios. In 2007, I began working exclusively with couples going through separation or divorce, needing financial education and analysis around their financial issues and concerns.

Experience

I am a Certified Mediator with the Washington Mediation Association and the Association of Conflict Resolution. I have served as a financial specialist and facilitator in Collaborative Divorce and mediation cases. I have limited my practice to working with couples seeking resolution through a Collaborative Law or mediation process.

Approach

As a neutral financial analyst and mediator, I work with both parties to help identify and support their settlement goals. This requires a commitment by the couple to work towards resolution together, remaining open and flexible, disclosing all pertinent information and using constructive and respectful communication methods.

Fees

I bill on an hourly basis.
