Compassionate.Experienced.Affordable.

For a decade Stephanie has been a leader of divorce mediation in Sacramento, Placer County, Yolo County and El Dorado County. After many years of being a Marriage and Family Therapist she realized that families and divorcing couples wanted to privately and cooperatively resolve their divorce, without a judge and court. Stephanie decided to attend law school and has been committed to giving couples an alternative to litigated divorce ever since.

 

She will assist both Parties to dissolve a marriage or parenting conflict in an amicable and nonaggressive way, for a fixed fee, and with no surprises. Every year Stephanie works with dozens of couples to create an environment of cooperation and respect. You will receive personalized time and attention directly from her, not "staff" or "assistants". 

 

Your divorce will be affordable, simple, and will stay out of court. You will never appear in court. NO retainer is required. Mediation and divorce paperwork services are a Fixed Fee  for the entire completion of your divorce. There are no suprises, you will know your costs. You can be confident that your divorce will be completed with one of Sacramento's leading divorce mediators. 

 

Stephanie has had extensive training in the law, negotiation, mediation, and conflict resolution. She will support you every step of the way during your divorce, making things clear, streamlined and affordable.

It is possible to divorce with dignity and respect, which honors your past and moves you closer to a happy future. I will help you and your spouse navigate your divorce cooperatively. I will guide you through the entire divorce process to include the filing of all divorce documents for a fraction of the cost and with peace of mind that the psychological and emotional effects of divorce are cared for. 

 

Before studying family law and graduating from McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, I practiced Marriage and Family Therapy for 17 years. This education and experience provides a knowledgeable and supportive environment that allows each party to be heard and respected. I no longer work as a licensed therapist, instead I have combined my law degree, legal experience and years as a couples therapist to create alternative solutions to divorce. You will receive information and education about divorce in California, and emotional support while going through this life event.
