Some family conversations are so difficult that they lead to conflict or avoidance. I help families when they cannot help themselves. As a neutral mediator, I educate and facilitate decision-making in a confidential environment to settle divorces and separations, plan for new or healthier marriages through prenuptial or marital agreements, and navigate intergenerational discussions about aging, estate planning and finance. Since 2001, I have been a mediator serving clients in Eastern Massachusetts. In 2015, I launched my own mediation firm to continue my divorce mediation practice and expand my work to other challenges. My current practice draws on my prior professional experiences assisting a private investor, practicing corporate law, clerking for a federal judge, teaching English in China and interning for “Late Night with David Letterman.”
