Having experienced divorce myself, I am committed to helping couples and families find a peaceful way to help uncouple and still maintain the well-being of their family. I am passionate about helping individuals find the balance and direction to move forward, grow from the divorce experience and ultimately find the joy that may have been missing from their lives.
