I am a certified Family Mediator in accordance with the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act. I help generate options towards resolution of your custody or elder care dispute, by facilitating constructive outcomes for win-win solutions.

My role as a mediator is to help disputing couples, co-parents, and families find a mutually acceptable resolution to their custody and elder care conflicts and case. Mediation is a powerful and cost-effective way to reach resolution without involving the intervention of the court.


Potential advantages of mediation over court litigation include:

  • Control over what decisions are made

  • Privacy and confidentiality

  • Flexibility with rules, procedures, and outcomes

  • Significantly reduced costs

  • Focus on solutions vs. problems


The stress of a courtroom proceeding can be overwhelming. In a lawsuit, there is typically a winning party and a losing party, which is determined by a judge or arbitrator. In mediation, both parties have the opportunity to win through negotiation and mutual agreement, which in turn leads to . As a voluntary process, parties are always in control of the outcome, rather than leaving it up to a judge or arbitrator. 


Services are available at my office, or a suitable location in your area that we designate prior to the initial meeting. Most mediation sessions last approximately 2 hours, while in some cases may require a half or full day.
