Areas of Expertise - My Story
Divorce + Family Mediation, Cognitive Behavioural Consulting & Youth Development.
After spending years at a small college preparatory school in a conformist sheltered bubble, I decided to transfer to the ethnically diverse Taft High School. I was determined to transform my stilted view of the world by exploring the culture of a school such as Taft. Unfortunately, I witnessed multiple riots, and I didn’t know how to make sense of the trauma. Motivated by the tension, viewing it as a microcosm of the world in which we live, I felt a moral obligation to help students break the grave cultural barriers afflicting our community. I have been mediating since 2005 when I helped to form the Peer Mediation class and club.
