Meet Heather

Hey there, my name is Heather and I'm an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) specialist.

I help individuals and families navigate divorce with less conflict and cost so they can leave a healthy legacy for their kids.

Before becoming certified as a divorce coach and mediator, I had a long career in education. I've been working to make a positive impact in kids' lives for over 25 years. 

My other qualifications and experiences include:

  • Mentor Coach with Divorce Coaches Academy (DCA),  a divorce coach certification program based in ADR practices
  • Collaborative Divorce Coach and member of OACP
  • Certified New Ways For Families (NWFF) Co-Parent Coach for co-parents in a high conflict divorce
  • Parent Educator for parents in family transition in Multnomah and Clackamas Counties, Oregon
  • Court-connected volunteer mediator with Multnomah and Clackamas Counties
  • Certified Divorce & Divorce Recovery and Transition Coach with the CDC - Certified Divorce Coach
  • Master's in Teaching from Stanford University

This work is incredibly meaningful to me.  As a divorced mom of 3 kids, I know how important it is to limit the conflict and costs in divorce.

I am honored to be able to help parents manage conflict better so they can keep their kids at the center of hard decisions, not caught in the middle.
