Description of Practice

I came to the practice of mediation with a strong financial planning background. Since 2000 I have been adding to my portfolio of tools: evaluative, facilitative and transformative techniques of mediation for the many hundreds of cases I have resolved.

I have received accreditation as a professional mediator by the NJ Association which has awarded less than 100 in the field and have been a member of the NJAPM Board of Directors 2011-2015, Executive VP -2016 .

An attorney involved in several mediations with me said " your empathy and professionalism in mediating cases puts a human face on the judicial process and often results in amicable resolution of disputes that are sometimes laden with emotion and hostility."
