Description of Practice

Mediation gives you and your spouse the opportunity to work through the divorce in a cooperative, respectful manner, avoiding much of the cost and emotional damage that comes from the traditional divorce process. Working with an attorney/mediator as a trained neutral, you and your spouse can separate your lives and your belongings with integrity and respect. Each side is heard and agreements are reached together. My role as a mediator is to facilitate meetings between you and your spouse, and guide you through divorce negotiations keeping the balance of power and equalizing differences. I do not represent either spouse or take sides. I provide you with a safe environment for dialogue and keep the discussions focused. I’ll help you find solutions that preserve the dignity of your family and avoid court. I will work with you and your spouse to place the needs of your children first. Together, we will focus on prioritizing peaceful resolutions and minimizing emotional stress. Mediation avoids the formal court process and long, drawn out litigation, saving you time and extensive attorney fees.
