As Mediation Counsel for the Conflict Intervention Service of the Bar Association of San Francisco, I manage a groundbreaking program that prevents evictions in supportive and affordable housing.
For many years I worked in the commercial real estate industry in negotiation and executive roles. I managed landlord tenant conflict in the nation’s most culturally diverse environments, including San Francisco, Manhattan, Los Angeles, and Honolulu.
Since 2012, my private practice has focused on mediation, negotiation consulting, and ADR project management. I co-founded the Napa Mediation Center and established a mediation panel for the King County Bar Association, before joining the Conflict Intervention Service.
30+ years negotiation, conflict engagement, and strategic planning experience from Manhattan to Honolulu. I am an authentic expert in managing landlord tenant relations.
Transformative, evaluative, and facilitative techniques inform my practice. An empathic listener who helps parties find their voices, I offer lateral thinking and strategic perspective when needed.
Opportunity lurks in calamity. Creative solutions emerge from exploring mutual concerns and interests, and constructive collaboration.
Most cases involve relational conflict more than discrete disputes. Resolution requires patience, and emerges over time. I often utilize online tools to support the process efficiently and affordably. I negotiate by installment and spend substantial time privately with participants, leading them to common high ground by telephone, video conference, and email. This approach generally produces superior, more satisfying results for the parties.
