I charge by the hour and payment is due at the end of each session. For a complete divorce, most couples meet with me between 3 - 6 times depending upon how complicated their finances, how volatile are the emotions, and how able or motivated they are to do some work together outside of sessions. Upon request, I can provide my clients with a list of "mediation friendly" attorneys. If my clients are represented, I may communicate with the attorneys on occasion, either between sessions or once a final agreement is drafted. I also work with clients who choose not to consult with attorneys.

Night Eagle Wilderness Adventures
A unique summer camp for boys ages 10-14 in the heart of the Green Mountains. At Night Eagle, we live in tipis and do things that boys did hundreds of years ago - learn survival skills (fire making with flint & steel or bow drills, plant identification, tracking, camouflage), create lots of craft items (birchbark baskets, moccasins), go on hikes, canoe, swim, and play lots of games (Buffalo Robe, Stalk the Chief and Slack 'Em to name a few)! Through these activities and the slower pace of life in camp, boys naturally develop a deeper respect for the land and learn to live and play together in a spirit of cooperation rather than competition.
