When dealing with a family law issue it is always advisable to access the expertise of other professionals in addition to legal services. I recommend the following professionals.


As a Registered Family Mediator and Parenting Coordinator, Andrea assists parents in creating comprehensive parenting and communication plans to allow for effective co-parenting, despite elevated levels of conflict.


Melani Carefoot


As a Registered Social Worker with 28 years experience in working with families, children and youth Melani has been able to gain extensive experience in many areas. She immigrated from England in 2000, having been in the social work profession for over 17 years, and for the past 12 years have worked as a Team Leader for Children’s Services in Calgary, overseeing both case managers and investigators, in a busy Child Welfare office. As a private practioner it is her vision to help individuals and families to make well thought out positive choices that will assist them to move on in their life. When events occur that we have no previous experience of, be that divorce, parenting challenges or domestic violence, it can be helpful to access therapy as a way to reassess your current circumstances, explore ways to embrace change and move forward.
