                                                   ABOUT ME


I am the product of parents that probably should have gotten a divorce, but did not. Their relationship taught me some life lessons. It is important to put the kids first, to realize a happy home with one parent probably beats an unhappy one in constant turmoil.

I did get married later in life and had two children. It was a difficult arrangement and I felt so much like a single parent in my marriage that divorce was not terribly different in that way. My divorce was expensive, protracted, and adversarial. We used many professionals: forensic accountants, mediators, family law attorneys, career counselors and more. The whole process took about five difficult years.

Gosh I wish I knew then what I’ve learned now after becoming a Certified Divorce Coach. Yet these experiences have given me a deep understanding of many of the difficulties one faces through this journey. I am able to empathize, and walk down many paths with my clients. Should I or shouldn’t I, betrayal, uncertainty as well as working to get my financial house in order. Believe it or not, I have come out of this trying experience as a more self-sufficient, independent and expansive individual. My kids are interesting, productive people with decent values. I am still standing.


                                 MY EXPERIENCE


My career as a special education teacher provided me with firsthand knowledge (while working with children and parents) of families experiencing frustration, concern regarding the future, navigating the bureaucracy and issues of low self-esteem.  We shepherded each other through these obstacles successfully in most cases with a happier result in the end.

Additionally I am a certified divorce coach trained specifically to work with individuals in all stages of divorce. I have been doing this work for sometime now and feel that I have found my passion. It gives me a strong sense of purpose to be a supportive, thinking partner to women and men. As your sounding board we prioritize, clarify, seek expert advice as needed and streamline the divorce process.

My credentials include a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California Berkeley as well as a Masters of Education from San Francisco State University. I am a certified divorce coach from the CDC. In addition I’m working as an advocate for abused women in the San Francisco Bay Area.


                            MY PROMISE TO YOU

I will be your advocate, sounding board, and support throughout your divorce and beyond.  We will streamline the process by clarifying your priorities, while staying true to your values.
