Description of Practice

I work as a mediator, collaborative professional, consulting, and representing attorney in Oakland, helping clients better understand themselves, their spouse/partner, and family law so they can reach mutually satisfying agreements and reduce conflict in the present and the future. I use my extensive background in Non-Violent Communication to provide clients with a framework for understanding themselves and others.

Professional Background

I am a member of the California State Bar Family Law Section, Alameda Bar Association Family Law Section, Contra Costa County Bar Association Family Law Section, International Association of Collaborative Professionals, and Collaborative Practice East Bay.

Experience

For the last 12 years, I have focused my work on helping clients resolve conflict through mediation and collaborative practice.

Degrees

University of California, Los Angeles, BA, 1989; University of California, Davis, JD, 1992

Approach

My needs-based mediation approach helps clients avoid communication dynamics that typically lead to defensiveness and disconnection, so that each client can hear and be heard. From this more centered place, clients are better able to understand what is important to everyone involved in the separation process and they are better able to relate to each other from a place of connection, rather than frustration, anger, or defensiveness.

Fees

$425 per hour. Free 20 minute phone consultation.
