areas of expertise


It is essential to determine that the client–lawyer relationship is a good fit, so that the client's needs can best be served.

My goal is to help my clients navigate through the difficult changes brought about by divorce. Whenever possible, I provide pragmatic, cost-effective guidance to find a solution to complex problems. I work hard to be compassionate, understanding and to work creatively to find the best resolution. I am collaboratively-trained, doing my best to leave you with something, as a couple or a family, that you can build on.

I received my Philosophy degree from the Portland State University Honors College, and my Juris Doctor Degree from Lewis & Clark Northwestern Law School.

When I'm not helping my clients I enjoy spending time with my family. I also enjoy cooking, running and practicing yoga. I am a native Portlander, and feel extremely lucky to live and work in the same community where my kids attend school.
