More about this team member

I am passionate about helping families to survive and thrive during and after separation.

I believe that families break when parents find it really hard to put their children’s interests before their own. The brain can do a really great job of making someone believe they’re putting the children’s interests first when they really aren’t. Sometimes they just need a new way of thinking.  And, sometimes, parents just can’t agree on what is *really* best for their children and just need some help negotiating a compromise.

The good news is that repairs can be made and the family can be built in a new and different way.

Mornington, VIC

Service Delivery Area:

Services delivered face to face in the Mornington Peninsula area of Victoria and online via video mediation.

Family Dispute Resolution: I support families to resolve their disagreements using the process of mediation. Most of the time this involves working with mums and dads who are having difficulty agreeing on how children will spend time with each of them, and how the family’s money should be shared between mum and dad. But, FDR can be used with any family dispute.

Conflict Coaching: I coach people in conflict to find their own solutions through introspection and exploring the other person’s point of view. This method is very effective whether it’s just you, or both parties. If you think your ex might have ASD and their irrational thinking is causing high conflict, I’ve developed a special program that will transform your relationship, leave you calmer and feeling more in control, and create happier kids.

Divorce Counselling & Coaching: Sometimes you just can’t decide what to do, or aren’t coping with your situation. You might worry about the future or feel like you’re a failure and will never find love again. I can work with you to sort through your feelings, assess your situation and craft a brighter future.
