Description of Practice

John Rymers and Debbie Reinberg are partners in ELDEResolutions, an intergenerational mediation, facilitation and conflict coaching firm. John is a Licensed Professional Counselor and has been a mediator in private practice since 1986. He has a Masters degree in psychology from the University of Northern Colorado. Besides his work with ELDEResolutions, his practice is in the area of domestic relations, working with high-conflict divorce clients as a mediator, parenting coordinator, decision-maker and arbitrator.

John received training as a mediator in 1984 from CDR Associates, an international conflict resolution firm in Boulder, Colorado. Once trained, John worked with CDR as a Senior Associate co-mediating divorce cases with less experienced mediators and assisting with mediation training as a coach for students learning mediation. As part of his private practice, John offered an internship to professionals trained in mediation but lacking actual mediation experience. This benefited both the mediators, by giving them an opportunity to hone their skills with guidance, as well as the clients who received quality co-mediation services at a reasonable price.

John taught mediation and negotiation with CDR Associates and The University of Denver’s University College. He is an Advanced Practitioner member of the Association for Conflict Resolution (formerly the Academy of Family Mediators). John has extensive experience mediating divorce and custody issues in high conflict divorce situations.
