Approach

Solution Focused: My goal is to offer a fair and balanced environment to make sure everyone involved in the mediation feels they have been heard and understood. I offer a fresh perspective on meditation and conflict resolution in general, by using creative methods to help resolve issues. I believe in the Facilitative approach to mediation. Communication must be honest, open, and with dignity. Confidentiality is the basis for the trust that is put in me. All parties involved should be able to speak and be understood. I am a facilitator – not a judge. I don’t give opinions or advice. I ask questions and assist the parties looking for options. I move the conversation toward a resolution designed by the parties. The parties influence the decisions and the agreement they come to. We always seek a mutual resolution.

Other Information

What Are the Benefits of Mediation? Participants have control over the resolution of their own problem. Everyone has an equal say in the process and decide the resolution terms. Disputes can be settled promptly. A Mediation session can be scheduled as soon as everyone agrees to use mediation to resolve the dispute. No lengthy court docket wait. Mediation costs are significantly less than taking a case to trial. Mediation promotes better relationships through cooperative problem-solving and improved communication. Mediation is private and confidential. The mediator and the people in the dispute must maintain the confidentiality of the information disclosed during mediation. Mediation is voluntary. Individuals are not obligated to participate in the process. They can end the mediation session at any time. Settlement is voluntary. If you cannot reach an agreement, you still have the right to take the dispute before a judge or jury. If you believe the above benefits can assist you in achieving your goal of resolving your dispute, then Mediation is for you. Call us today to schedule your session !
