I'm Here to Help You Though This Journey
This time of year can bring particular challenges for families going through divorce or custody proceedings, so I wanted to share some guidance with you as the holiday season approaches. Planning a clear path forward can pave the way for a joyful season for you and your children. Here are six guidelines to consider:
Worry is often your closest companion if you’re a parent, grandparent, or love and care for a child. Unfortunately, it just comes with the job. November is National Child Safety and Protection Month and the perfect time to review some key safety considerations as well as a few ways you can help minimize any risks.
Throughout each season, there are so many things to enjoy--especially when it comes to outdoor activities.

I certainly hope we don’t meet or talk under these circumstances, but I want you to know what to do should you or a loved one experience a fall or another personal injury.

That’s why, as a new school year begins, I want to share a handful of co-parenting tips with you–ones I've collected from dedicated clients and friends who have found them extremely helpful for their families.
