She is a skilled and effective mediator and provides mediation services for a variety of domestic disputes, including: divorce, custody, child support, parental responsibilities, grandparent visitation, post-decree matters and other family law disputes.

Rachel is warm, compassionate and focuses on effectively resolving disputes while preserving relationships between the parties.
