A little background of how I came to work with couples at first and now men. First of all, I am quite proud to have been with my wife for over 25 years. But before that, I had gone through a difficult breakup from a long term relationship that informed my understanding and sympathy for men going through the tough time of divorce and separation. 

I started out as an elementary school teacher, which as many of you probably know, gives a person lots of on the job mediation skills. I have done other work including casting TV commercials and a print/web design business. I lived in Los Angeles for 27 years, Nashville for 10 years and many areas of the South as a child and finally now happily in Sarasota. I began to notice that conflict was evident in all jobs and places, so many years ago I decided to return to school and get a Master's Degree in Conflict Management from Lipscomb University. Through working with the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center and Sumner Mediation Services Victim Offender Reconciliation Programs, I mediated many couples who had gotten so far off track that they either get physical with each other or end up yelling to the point that the police are called. Judges would often send these couples to mediation to work out a plan that will keep them out of the courts. But often, they could not work out their differences and I ended up mediating over a hundred parenting plans for couples going through separation and divorce.

Having lived in many different places, which include living in very small towns in Arkansas to the big cities like Los Angeles and Nashville and now Sarasota, I believe that I have a unique understanding of people from all walks of life. I am completely comfortable with people from all over.
