“Family Law & Mediation has always been a natural fit for me. Every day I rely on my background in anthropology, mental health services, and restorative justice practices to help my clients. I have always been intrigued by, and want to better understand, why people do what they do and how their overall well-being can help determine how best that person and the family can function going forward.” ~ Erin
