                    I am an an attorney and mediator with twenty-three years of experience in litigating and mediating complex health care malpractice cases.  As a former registered professional nurse, I counseled individuals and families with medical, emotional and psychological issues in a mental health clinic and led family groups on mental health issues.  My professional education includes a certificate in Group Psychotherapy from Cornell Medical College.  I have extensive training in mediation including over 300 hours of basic training at the Center for Understanding in Conflict,  family and divorce mediation at the Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy, Center for Mediation and Training, Westchester Mediation Center and advanced training in health care mediation by the American Health Lawyers Association.  I am a certified mediator in the New York State Unified Court System and a member of the 9th Judicial District Panel on Divorce Mediation.

                 As a former trial lawyer, I've seen the price human beings pay when their only option is the court room or a hearing.   Couples who can no longer remain married and families experiencing conflict are not served by a system which involves strategy and subterfuge.  If you want to act in the best interests of you, your children and family then mediation is an option which can radically decrease both the monetary and emotional costs of complex decision making.
