About me

  i specialize in mediating family law cases. The purpose of mediation is to reduce or eliminate the need for litigation and thereby reduce or eliminate the need to pay huge attorney fees . It can also save your family and your children from a lot of heartache.


   I'm available to mediate cases in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and I work on a sliding scale.  I am also a licensed clinical social worker so I have some therapeutic knowledge and skills.  I can help you get through your divorce or other family law matter without fighting and without going bankrupt. I also worked  for public child welfare ie child protective services for 10 years so I have a lot of knowledge about the system.
