Member News and Summer Highlights


By Ken Novenstern

We are coming out of Summer, 2022 where people clearly took revenge vacations based upon all of your pictures on FB!!!  I enjoyed time on Vancouver Island in Victoria and Tofino with some cooler temps, and in Alaska—some awesome fishing, kayaking and hiking.  Thanks to Jacinta Gallant for her recommendations on Vancouver Island.  Then a few days last week hiking the High Peaks in the Adirondacks with a great recommendation on hiking Cascade and Porter from Abby Curro, possibly the only person in NYACP to hike all 46 of the peaks over 4,000’ in the ADKs—a true 46er!

Our group continues to impress.  Ellen Jancko-Baken has established a solid Membership Committee, with Catherine Canadé and Shara Goldfarb starting another session of the Mentorship Program - please register ASAP if you want to participate as Mentor or Mentee!  Melissa Goodstein and Tony Markus continue the great work of the Training and Education Committee with Jacinta Gallant set for our Annual Training at Brae Burn Country Club on December 1, 2022. Special thanks to Neil Kozek for helping get the day set with Brae Burn and allowing us to enjoy this beautiful venue which has been a part of his family life for at least 15 years. 

Our Board is a tremendous group.  Randy Heller has been an enthusiastic and active addition in 2022.  Other members not mentioned above include Steve Linker who has hopefully dealt with some important health issues and will help guide us through the Fall; Michele Lewis who has participated in Training and Education and now the Membership Committee; Meg Sussman who is also part of the Executive Committee as Secretary; Nancy Kaye who does the work behind the scenes to oversee our finances and is constant in her attention to detail; Kathleen Donelli who is working on upcoming programs; Jeffrey Steiger who may be our longest serving Board member always with important input; and of course, our Past president, Andrea Vacca, who has helped guide this organization for so many years and has been instrumental in important structural changes including the retention of Cap Hill as our management company.  And Abby Curro will soon be completing her fourth year as our Executive Director with her usually quiet and steady suggestions and recommendations helping us negotiate the issues which arise in the smooth operation of the NYACP.

To our members, thank you for always stepping up and assisting with trainings, membership issues, input and kind words.  I think of former Board members like MaryEllen Linnehan, Deborah Wayne, Lauren Behrman, Katherine Miller, Bob Raymond, Neil Cahn, Andrew Samalin, Arnold Cribari, and so many others who helped us reach this stage in our development as an organization and how critical their earlier work has been in our evolution.  Other members who have been enthusiastic supports include Barbara Rothberg who is just stepping off another role as a member of the Membership Committee, Linda Markowitz who helps out always; Elana Katz and Steve Kaplan who undertook our most recent BCIT Training with Katherine; and Steve again for his role in maintain our connection with Kathryn Lazar and the Hudson Valley Practice Group.   Harriette Steinberg is playing an important part in our efforts to keep Social Media front of mind—thank you Harriette. 

I look forward to a rousing Fall and the end of my term as President.  It went fast and included the Zoom world of remote work and trainings.  Special thanks to my colleague and Vice President Melissa Goodstein and I look forward to working with Melissa on the transition to her term as President starting in January 2023.

NYACP Board of Directors Strategic Planning

Your NYACP Board is at Work For You!!
Your Board participated in a strategic planning session on June 22nd, 2022 for a full day retreat. During that time, the Board members facilitated by Brian Buff from Capitol Hill Management Services. Together, we brainstormed to explore what needs to be in place to maximize the benefits of our organization for members. We also shared ideas about reviewing our mission to investigate what we are accomplishing, and what we as a Collaborative community can do to best educate, engage, and support our members and the community at large. Topics of discussion included and were not limited to bridging to the “New Normal” after the Pandemic related to how NYACP moves past the pandemic and into the future. We discussed our potential challenges, goals & objectives for Next 3 Years Identifying and Prioritizing the Key Needs and Goals for NYACP in 2023-25. We identified what lies ahead and what we want to accomplish? Brian Buff will create A “Living Document” – Implementing and Using a Strategic Plan Includes tips for ensuring that all aspects of NYACP’s operations, i.e. committees, etc. are aware of and utilizing the Strategic Plan in their work. We will use the rest of 2022 to finalize and begin implementation of the plan. This is your organization. Your Board invites your input, participation, and active engagement on our committees, in our pods, and with our programming. If you have questions about how to become more involved, don’t hesitate to contact Abby Curro for direction. 

Summer Social in NYC

After several years of the pandemic shut down, we jumped forward into Spring when NYACP held its first in-person Social Event in NYC !
Our get together was held on June 1, 2022 at The Park Imperial in midtown Manhattan! It was a great opportunity for Collaborative colleagues and friends to safely join together and begin to awaken in the Spring from the challenges of the past several years. We had a very good turnout, a lot of fun and laughter. It was a great way to strengthen, build, and grow relationships. Please look out and join us at our future events.



Narcissism and Addiction 

For our last presentation before the summer break, on June 10, 2022 our own Micki Wade, LCSW presented: "Narcissism and Addiction as Common Themes in Marriage that Lead to Divorce." Moderated by Melissa Goodstein, this presentation discussed these two common afflictions that end marriages and destroy relationships in general. Narcissism and addiction, often related, also cause major roadblocks in negotiation and while creating parenting plans. Micki shared effective and ineffective strategies while trying to reach settlement as well as on ways to manage these cases with more patience and compassion. We also explored questions like: When does habit become an addiction? Why does AA work when therapy doesn’t? How does one become a narcissist? Is one addiction worse than another? What is codependency?

Micki is a clinical social worker, psychotherapist, collaborative divorce coach, certified equine assisted therapist and author. Micki has been a coach on somewhere between 100 and 200 collaborative cases.Because of her specialized knowledge of addiction, she has served on many cases where addiction has been present and has been able to directly address the addiction, codependency, discuss treatment options and create appropriate parenting plans.

Melissa received training in collaborative law and in 2005 was trained in the interdisciplinary collaborative team model.   Melissa practices exclusively within the mediation and collaborative divorce models.  Her practice is located in Katonah, New York serving clients throughout Westchester County and Putnam County and the surrounding New York metropolitan area.  Melissa is the Vice President of the NYACP.

A Guideline to Guidelines

She practices Collaborative Law, litigates and serves as a private pay Attorney for the Child, by court appointment in the First Department, New York County, representing children in contested custody and parenting time litigation. 

Larry focuses his NYC solo practice on family law issues, including, divorce, child custody, child support, property division and maintenance. Larry mainly uses the processes of Collaborative Practice and mediation with a little remaining sprinkling of the adversarial model. 

“Follow Up” – Why It’s So Important And How It Can Haunt You

On Wednesday, June 15, 2022, Margaret A. Nicholson, Esq. facilitated an informal discussion at the Northern Westchester Pod Monthly Meeting regarding follow-up – why it’s so important and how it can haunt you. Participants discussed when we can feel comfortable that our job as collaborative professionals has been carried through to completion? How shall we discuss and memorialize the extent of follow up to be done with clients and/or expected of professionals when finalizing an agreement. How can we Anticipate pitfalls that could arise in the future. What actions can we take to increase the effectiveness or enhance the success of our negotiated settlements? This event was sponsored by the Northern Westchester Pod Monthly Meeting

Margaret is a matrimonial and family law attorney with a practice located in Somers, NY. In addition to her practice’s family law focus, she also provides representation to clients in real estate transactions and guardianship matters.

It is that mission that drives our goal with this new initiative.

MCT has continued their Introductory learning program, and several of our NYACP members have participated.  In April and May we heard presentations about “Being the Best Team Player that you Can Be, and How to successfully launch your Collaborative Practice with Collaborative Leaders Brian Galbrinth, the incoming President of IACP and Susan Guthrie, of the Mosten and Giuthrie Academy.

These programs are also a fantastic way to provide our members and other Collaborative professionals the opportunity to network and is fantastic for those who are just getting started in the Collaborative Process, as well as those experienced professionals looking to expand their professional network.

Membership Committee

A Membership Committee creates strategies to keep current members active and involved in order to preserve their retention numbers and develops campaigns to attract new members. The Membership Committee becomes more active when the board identifies a membership-related issue or special project that requires discussion, research and recommendations for changes to association membership business. The Committee will promote the benefits of NYACP membership; identify issues important to members; evaluate current and potential products and services; and work to enhance the value of NYACP membership. Meetings are scheduled for the second Wednesday of the month at noon. Ellen Jancko-Baken (Chair)

WANTED!....Mentors and Mentees  

Our NYACP Mentorship Program continues to be a valuable and rewarding experience for both mentees and mentors alike!  Each month the mentors and mentees connect to answer the mentee's questions regarding ongoing cases, specific issues or practice management. At the end of the session we have a feedback session which gives us some good ideas for how to improve the program going forward.

We are launching the next session September 15th, 2022 which will run through January 15th, 2023. 

The NYACP Mentorship Program offers NYACP members the opportunity to be paired with experienced collaborative professionals who may provide case or practice guidance, mentoring and advice.  This program is open to NYACP member collaborative attorneys, mental health professionals and financial professionals. 

Expectations and Guidelines:

  1. This is a FREE benefit to our members.
  2. The NYACP Mentorship Committee, a subcommittee of the Membership Committee, will match Mentees and Mentors and handle all inquiries.
  3. The NYACP Mentorship Committee will be selecting a small number of Mentee-Mentor pairs for this program.  All applicants who are not paired for this session will be placed on the waitlist for the next session.
  4. Each pairing will be for a 4-month period, and may be extended by mutual agreement.
  5. Each month, the Mentor and Mentee will have a one-hour (virtual or in-person) meeting to discuss issues of interest or concern to the Mentee. The pair mutually may schedule additional time to communicate as schedules allow.
  6. All Mentors and Mentees will also be meeting (virtually or in-person) for group discussion and camaraderie at the mid-point and end-point of the session.
  7. This program is envisioned to provide informal case consultation as well as advice on business practices.  This is not a formal training program or apprenticeship; nor should there be an expectation of case observations, although that may be arranged on a case by case basis by mutual agreement.
  8. The Mentors and Mentees will be periodically asked to provide feedback about the Mentorship Program.

It is NYACP’s mission to empower our members to achieve excellence in their collaborative skills and practice, and we have confidence that this pilot program will provide our new as well as more experienced members with the opportunity to develop and improve their collaborative skills and strengthen connections within our NYACP community.

We look forward to a successful launch to our program!


Meet Corey M. Shapiro, Esq.

Until I was 8 years old, I thought I had been born into a family secured by my parents’ happy marriage. We were living in Hawaii—and growing up in Hawaii, as Larry David would say, is “pretty . . . pretty . . . pretty ...good.”
However, my world was flipped upside down when I came home one day from third grade, and my mom wasn’t home. How could that be? Mom was always home. It turns out she abandoned our family because that is what she thought was her best option for self-care.

I have spent the better part of two decades helping people through their divorces to avoid the kind of bad choices my mom made.

Meet Stacy Preston Collins

Stacy Preston Collins, CPA/ABV, CFF is a Managing Director with Financial Research Associates and has focused on forensic accounting and valuation issues since 1993. Her work involves complex financial issues in matrimonial cases, shareholder disputes, estate planning engagements, and other matters.

Ms. Collins has testified as a financial expert on business valuation and forensic accounting issues in several states. She has been appointed by the court as an expert in New York and New Jersey.


"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer." — F. Scott Fitzgerald

Take a look at some of the fun our members had this summer!

Melissa Goodstein and daughter in her happy place! 

I spent one week of my summer vacation taking my grandson to look at schools in Boston and then delivering him to Columbia for a 3 week summer program for high school students. I spent the rest recovering from that trip just in time to have the older one for a week. I love my weekends at my summer place on the Jersey shore! And what great weather we have had this summer.
Linda Markowitz

I went to Colorado during my summer vacation. My hobby is whitewater paddling and I worked on edging techniques - by shifting ones weight in the boa,t putting the canoe or kayak on an edge rather than resting on the flat bottom of the boat. I also started my 12 year old grandson to do river kayaking.
Neil Grossman

Seeing and learning about the world ranks high on my list, so what is summer without a travel adventure or two? Flight cancellations and logistics got in the way in a major way (and thank you to those who accommodated my changed and uncertain travel plans), but Fern and I persevered and got to enjoy a thrilling bucket list trip - Safari in Tanzania and Kenya - as well as a long weekend in a very hot but enjoyable Amsterdam. Wonderful after several years of avoiding travel. Beach time on the weekend was enjoyable too. As summer draws to a close, next summer's trip to the Galapagos and Machu Picchu is already in the works and something to look forward to. Hope to see all of you soon.
Steven Kaplan

One important development for me is the along with Michelle Lewis and Denise O’Connor and a cracker jack team of paralegals, we began a new firm, KOZEK PLLC!  We continue to practice at the same address, in the same suite, with the same contact information.  We can also be reached by email at:  [email protected][email protected]; and [email protected]

We are excited for a new era of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution. I am excited to continue to be co-chair of the AAML Collaborative Law Committee and I am speaking briefly to the AAML at their annual conference in November in Chicago.  Miss you Rand!!!
Neil Kozek

Due to Covid, my summer adventure travel didn’t happen.  I spent time off either with my four grandchildren, ages .1 to 5 ½ years old and seriously questioning my dedication to playing golf. We sold our home where we lived for 36 years and will be moving in a few months to White Plains.  The new house comes with a large partial unfinished basement and my husband is thrilled he doesn’t have to throw out anything because the new basement has a large storage area.  Wish me luck!
Barbara Bel

I flew to Barcelona in June and set sail from there on the Celebrity Beyond cruise ship….where my daughter was working as a singer/dancer.  What a thrill to see her doing what she loves as we cruised the Mediterranean!  Then Ellen Jancko-Baken and I settled a major, decidedly non-collaborative case.  The thrill of being done with that mess rivals that of seeing my daughter perform!!
Dolores Gebhardt

I had a bike accident at the start of the summer that derailed my ability to bike or kayak for the rest of the summer, but enjoyed a lot of long hikes and walks and spending time with my three sons. Then I went to Israel for the first time for a two week trip with my family. We spent a part of our first night in Tel Aviv in a bomb shelter as Islamic Jihad took aim at Tel Aviv, but it got much better after that!
Michelle Lewis

A quick flight out of the city to experience hiking in the mountains in North Carolina, set the context for some needed R&R.
Randy Heller

I spent a glorious month under the Tuscan sun  with family at my sister's home in Greve Italy.  I enjoyed preparing and sharing meals with the best Chianti, family card and board games,  exploring and walking the magnificent countryside, gelato, more gelato and more walking , fluffy summer reads by the pool, and most of all being present and tech free with my loved ones. I  am already planning my return and until then summer in Greve is my happy place. 
Melissa Goodstein

After a couple of years of more often than not laying low, we enjoyed 3 special trips this summer: visiting family in North Carolina, our annual "beach week" at the Jersey shore, and a 10 day trip to Israel planned to maximize touring opportunities ahead of training family therapists in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy). It's been a gift.
