hello! great to “meet” you.

If you’re on this page I assume that you’re trying to figure out how to navigate separation, divorce and/or co-parenting. If you’re stuck, don’t worry. We can help!
here’s a little about our practice – the co-lab company:

We’re focused on proactively reducing the exposure to conflict for kiddos. We support the establishment of strategies and plans that calm the waters for co-parents. We’re interest based, and come from a place of seeking to undestand in order to build unique solutions. We’re trauma-informed, and diversity affirming. You will not find judgement here. We work 100% online.

here’s a little about me:
I’m an interests based and child focused family mediator & co-parenting coach.
Professionally, I hold memberships with the Hear the Child Society, AFCC, ADRIC, FMC, and FDRIO. I’m also a certified NewWays for Families coach directly trained by Bill Eddy, LCSW, Esq. I’ve worked for over a decade within organizations that elevate the needs and equity of vulnerable individuals. And I have a background in conflict resolution, communications, family justice, family dynamics, intimate partner violence/family violence, neuroscience, psychology, and trauma.
Personally, I have a trifecta of unique lenses given that I’m a child of divorce, bonus parent, and biological parent who has roots in all three perspectives. If you genuinely want to find solutions that work well for your family, and see your kiddo thrive, I’d be grateful to support you along that journey. Let me know what you’re curious about, or what you need and we can go from there!
