What is Family

Family mediation is a way of helping people resolve issues relating to parenting, separation, and/or divorce. As a trained mediator I assist people in identifying issues and work out their own solutions.


Family and divorce mediation is a process in which a mediator, an impartial third party, helps solve family disputes by encouraging the participants' voluntary agreement. The family mediator assists communication, encourages understanding and focuses the participants on their individual and common interests. 

Why Mediate?
  •  If you want to resolve a conflict calmly, quickly, affordably, fairly, and constructively

  • If you want to resolve a conflict privately, without lots of people watching in a courtroom

  • if you want to resolve a conflict and move on in your life, rather than letting it fester and linger in your thoughts

  • If you want to use an informal process to resolve a conflict, rather than getting involved in a complex legal process

  • If you want to have control of the outcome of the conflict resolution process (unlike a lawsuit or arbitration where the third party decides for you)

  • If you want to be creative in finding a better solution, rather than be constrained by the limited legal options of litigation or arbitration

  • If you want to repair or strengthen a relationship with the other party

  • If you want to feel good about trying to negotiate the issues yourself, rather than gambling that someone else can do it for you

  • If you want to find a realistic, workable solution to your problem based on your needs
