I am both an attorney licensed to practice law and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (MFT 94485) and Washington (LF 61090853). I maintain a private practice with offices near downtown Los Gatos and Los Altos, California, and in the greater Seattle area in Washington. I specialize in court-involved counseling, family law mediation, and collaborative divorce. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked as a lawyer for over twenty years representing clients as an intellectual property attorney throughout the Silicon Valley and internationally, including high-technology startups in both transactional law and litigation. Currently, I offer strategic consultation in family law focusing on child custody. I also provide expert witness services in domestic violence, child custody, and in cases where a child is resisting/refusing contact with a parent in post-separation family law cases.
I earned my B.S. in Journalism, magna cum laude, from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, my law degree from UCLA School of Law, and my Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco’s Graduate School of Education with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy.
My New York license was "suspended" solely due to a voluntary decision not to pay bar dues, as I do not reside or practice law in New York. There is no "inactive" status in New York.
