About Me

I am committed to helping individuals in crisis get the answers they need and reach reasonable compromises with their parenting and property issues.  My motto is "Children are not a prize to be won."  I believe children need both parents in their life and I work to maximize time with each parent.  I also enjoy working with older women whose husband's are trying to "turn them out to pasture".  

On a personal level, I enjoy both my adult children and their families.  I am a devoted Grandmother.
