Approach

Ms. Allison has worked to settle disputes long before becoming a certified mediator. Her toolkit includes facilitative, evaluative, and transformative mediation techniques which she applies as needed to negotiate best results for all parties in the disputes she mediates. Because of her vast experience, she has top-of-the-head knowledge of possibilities and probabilities, therefore, she moves quickly to assisting disputants to be creative and open to options. “In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein
