Description of Practice

I conduct mediation sessions for employers, couples, partners, and families in an effort to help resolve their issues. Privately and for the court system I have been instrumental in aiding, previously divorced, couples modify and restate portions of their divorce decree. I have worked as a volunteer for Ocean County Mediation Service as well as being on their Preferred Mediation List. I am listed on the New Jersey Supreme Court Roster as a Mediator For Economic Aspects Of Family Law Cases. I was a team member and contributor for the New Jersey Association for Professional Mediator’s Education Committee where we worked to develop the educational aspects for mediation and negotiation. In addition, I conduct psychotherapy sessions.

Professional Background

I have been a licensed psychotherapist for the past twenty-nine years. My primary focus has been couples, families and relationships. Please feel free to visit my psychology bio, which can be found, on under Farfalle Psychotherapy And Mediation Services. Outside of conducting mediation sessions within psychotherapy, I have been formally conducting mediation since 2012 when I received my training and certificate.


I have conducted family and civil mediation, as well as conflict resolution, for both my private practice and the court system. In addition, privately and for the courts, I have aided couples who were previously divorce modify and restate portions of their divorce decree.


I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology as well as a Master of Arts degree in Psychological Counseling and a Doctoral Degree in Nutrition. I hold certificates in both Administration/Management and Mediation.


I believe that my education, training and experience, as a psychotherapist, has prepared me to help clients with issues involving divorce, civil aspects, and family conflicts matters. Please feel free to visit my bio.


A consultation fee of $100.00 is subtracted from the final total balance when the mediator and clients reach a working agreement and the mediation process has been completed. In addition, at the time of agreement, a retainer fee is also required.
