Description of Practice

VA Certified Family and Civic Mediator and Executive Director of Peaceful Alternatives Community Mediation Services, Inc. Mediate more than 600 cases per year which include custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution for marital separation, neighborhood disputes, workplace disputes, contract disputes and real estate disputes.

I hold a Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Education, and a Master's Degree in Conflict Transformation from Eastern Mennonite University. I contribute the majority of my experience to 26 years of mediating a diverse range of conflicts.

My approach to dispute resolution is more transformation focused because I believe everyone walks away from a mediation experience feeling they learned something they will use from this day forward to make their interaction with others more pleasant and productive.

My service fee is $100 per hour with a reimbursement for mileage if I must travel more than 50 miles from my office in Madison Heights, VA.

One of my strengths is to assist separated parties with dividing their assets and debts so each feels they were respected by the other party and left the table with their share of the marital assets.

If you are seeking mediation for a family, community, workplace or real estate dispute, please consider contacting me for a free consultation with no obligation.
