I am a Texas licensed Attorney-Mediator who has worked with families, juveniles, and individuals to solve problems both inside and outside the legal system in my various job capacities since 1988.
Presently I am limiting my practice to mediation, court-appointed CPS cases, and parenting facilitation cases under the Texas Family Code. I am a strong advocate for families. I believe that all children deserve a stable and loving home that is as conflict-free as possible.
Unfortunately, in family law litigation, I have seen first-hand that the parental conflicts played out inside and outside of court can damage the children and drain the parents’ resources both emotionally and financially. Don’t let this happen to you.
<<<Litigation pits parents against each other.
<<<Parental conflict hurts children.
I believe a better way to address the parental disagreements is through a process of Mediation and/or Parenting Facilitation.
Mediation often improves the communication between the co-parents and lays the groundwork for a future co-parenting relationship that is constructive and easier on everyone, especially the children.
In addition to being an Attorney-Mediator and Parenting Facilitator, I am a child of divorce myself and later experienced my own divorce as an adult. Presently, I am happily married and the parent of a teen.
Some other things you may wish to know about me: I have worked as a university-level professor of legal studies and served as a CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocate) and Guardian ad Litem for children through CASA of Travis County. I am a life-long learner and I love to take courses both online and in-person. I enjoy painting, walking the dog, and spending time with my family.
Thank you for stopping by.
Remember: Your children are counting on you to keep the parental conflict low so their childhood experience and long-term happiness can be high.
