Approach

Most clients have similar issues they need to address such as the house, the pension, and college education for the children. I therefore follow the tenet that mediation can be approached in fairly structured manner so as to minimize mediation fees, maximize the productivity of sessions by keeping clients focused, and expedite a resolution before the conflict is allowed to escalate. Nevertheless, I also believe that the process should also be flexible to properly address the uniqueness of each couple’s situation such as different religious requirements, or the needs of a gifted child. I have a facilitative style with a true belief in self-determination; I also has an eye towards settlement and am glad to provide resources that can help clients move towards resolution.
