Description of Practice
I specialize in Family and Workpace Mediation and Restorative Practices. As mediator, facilitator and coach for over 20 years, I work with families, teams and individuals to help resolve personal and professional conflicts, whether they be new and unexpected conflicts or long standing, simmering conflicts that feel intractable.
As an restorative practioner for over 10 years, I am experienced in addressing harm and its ripple effect on extended families and communities.
Since the ermergence this Spring of the COVID19 virus and the need for physical distancing to minimize risk I offer online mediations for interpersonal and team workplace disputes as well as family parenting and elder mediation.

For 20+ years I have worked as a family, community and workplace mediator and trainer, conflict coach and restorative practitioner in different cultural contexts in the US, Europe and West Africa. My mediation training started at Teachers College, Columbia University, continued at the Institute for Mediation and Conflict Resolution in the Bronx, at the Center for Mediation in Paris, France and at the School for International Training in Vermont. As a Mediator and Restorative Practitioner, I am particularly skilled at addressing the harm experience by unresolved conflict in families, schools, organizations and communities. My goal is to support people to find successful outcomes for the difficult situations they find themselves in and I am committed to working collaboratively with compassion and openness.

I have always been passionate about human relations – the nature of how people live, work, and play together, communicate and coexist. Respect and integrity are central values in my practice. I encourage people to identify their core values, to seek understanding in the midst of difference, to strive for sustainable and lasting conflict resolution, and if appropriate, to repair and strengthen broken relationships.
