As a Neutral Financial Professional, I work with the family and the collaborative team to reach a positive outcome for your family’s new normal. The team and family calmly and respectfully discuss your interests and common goals. The parties may express their financial concerns separately or in a joint meeting with me. I will work to balance and resolve the needs and wants, and financial realities of the parties. Depending on the families’ understanding of their finances, my role can vary significantly. I can prepare a marital balance sheet, assist with budgets, run support scenarios, trace separate property, etc.

I love teaching and assisting families in understanding their finances, both now and in the future. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

I am able to provide the following collaborative divorce services:

  • Prepare the Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth
  • Identify and trace separate property
  • Determine economic income for support purposes
  • Provide tax analysis of support and property settlements
  • Compile and analyze current and future budgets
  • Provide financial scenarios and options for peaceful resolution
  • Assist in client education of finances
