About Me

Please see my website at for photos and a complete history.  I also have a master's degree which I recently obtained in mental health counseling, which is invaluable to clients who are going through a divorce.  The empathy and active listening which I have been trained to utilitze is also of great psychological benefit to people in difficult emotional times, such as a divorce.
