About Trish 

(she, her)


Trish established her practice after surviving a toxic divorce & post separation abuse that spanned over 12 years.

Through first-hand experience with coercive control, post-separation abuse, a vindictive custody battle & trying to protect her children from trauma, she has developed a keen understanding of the effect each of the above has on a family.


Trish has developed a solid & nuanced understanding of the

challenges families face when seeking separation and divorce & knows how to employ strategies that work best to mitigate damage to those involved.  

Having studied & worked with many of the world's leading

experts in family law, coercive control, communicating with high conflict people, post-separation abuse & childhood trauma, Trish has acquired tools and resources that are helpful in mitigating damage done in abusive situations. It's Trish's mission to help people recover from

trauma and prevent them from safe parents and children from suffering needlessly.

Trish has over 20 years of experience teaching people communication

& conflict resolution skills through her roles as a Human Resources executive, University Business Instructor, Training Facilitator,

Business Coach and now a Divorce and Pre-Mediation Coach.
