Mediation is a tested, sensitive, intelligent approach to the resolution of separation, divorce, and custody disputes. It offers divorcing couples a more effective and humane alternative to the traditional adversarial process.


There is no retainer. Moderate fees are based on hourly rates and are payable after each session. The couple usually shares the payment equally. At completion, there is an additional moderate charge for the preparation of the Memorandum of Understanding. Referrals can be given to you for an attorney who, for a moderate fee, can prepare and process the legal papers.

Dr. Plesent is also licensed in New York State as Clinical Social Worker and has been a Diplomate in Clinical Social Work.
