Description of Practice
Patty's passion for helping couples and families through difficult times, her extensive mediation and counseling training (including certification in Spiritual Direction) and her many years as a business person, equip her to deal with both the practical and the emotional aspects of conflict.
Her facilitative approach assists couples in working through their specific issues as constructively as possible, helps them minimize negative tactics, emphasizes productive ways to make decisions and focuses on the big picture (such as the best interests of the children and/or not wasting a couple's entire net worth on a costly court battle).
By utilizing a multi-faceted and facilitative approach that includes identifying the individual's and/or family's true issues and concerns, facilitating productive communication and educating couples and families concerning possible outcomes, Patty has been able to achieve success in the majority of mediations she facilitates.
