Thank you for your interest in the Collaborative Council of the Redwood Empire (CCRE)! We are delighted to provide information about our practice group. We look forward to welcoming you to a meeting and/or answering any questions you may have. When you join CCRE you are joining like-minded professionals who are committed to helping families and people in other types of disputes resolve conflict in a respectful and healing process. We are passionate about practice excellence and peace building. We work together, play together, learn together, and together bring Collaborative ideals into the community. We look forward to getting to know you.

Beginning January 2014, CCRE will be meeting at the Finley Community Center at 2060 West College Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA. The meetings are either a box lunch (12:00 - 1:30 pm) or early evening meeting with wine and hors d'oeuvres (5:00 - 7:00 pm). Meetings alternate throughout the year between early evening meetings and box lunch meetings beginning with an early evening meeting in January. Visit our Calendar page for more information. 

We are an organization of independent civil and family law attorneys, licensed mental health professionals, licensed financial professionals, and other interested professionals. CCRE is open to guests during meetings. To inquire about attending an open meeting, please email Jude Sterling at

CCRE is also involved in a San Francisco Bay area-wide network and a California statewide Collaborative network committed to increasing public awareness of the Collaborative Process.

“Divorce is never easy but the collaborative process made mine bearable.  I had more control and therefore less stress and anxiety because I had an active role.”
