I can be your guide through the uncertainty you are experiencing and want to be the first one to witness the positive turnaround for you and your family.

People tend to see me as patient and unburdened by strong emotions. I take great care in helping my clients clear the unknown ahead of them, as well as recover their sense of safety and peace of mind.

People going through separation often feel overwhelmed at times and have many questions. Here are some answers to get you started…

I work long hours, can you still help?

For my scheduled sessions, I offer extended hours from 9am to 7pm Monday through Friday, and I am available over the weekend from 11am to 4pm. 

If these times do not fit with your availability–because of work or because one of you is currently living outside of Canada–I will consider your special circumstances and do my best to be available when you are.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

I have found that the best approach to help the families move forward with a Collaborative Divorce Process. The mediator, lawyers, financial neutral, and/or social worker will work as a team, each focusing on our area of specialty to help you reach a final comprehensive agreement.

We want you to feel done after the process is complete. Our goal is to ensure that the agreements you reach are lasting and you have a clear understanding about how you will move forward after the separation agreement is signed.

I don't live in Toronto, can I still use Aligned Choices?

With services being offered remotely, not living in Toronto is not the barrier it once was.

As long as you have access to a private space for our conversation and a stable internet connection, we can get you started on the road to resolving your current circumstances.

Is it normal to feel anxious when considering mediation?

This anxiety is coming up because you have reached the point where you know you need to start talking about the difficulties your family is experiencing. This and the unknown of what happens after you start sharing your story make it an understandably challenging place to be in. Let me provide you with some assurance.

Mediation is less expensive, more efficient, and less contentious than our court system. More importantly though, mediation keeps you focused on positive end results, particularly, where your children are concerned.

I will help you plan and understand your new roles as co-parents and will work in concert with other experts.

I will work hard to ensure that both of you get continual and relevant guidance. Helping you and your spouse find peace of mind and security for your family is my sincere commitment.
