While conflict is a reality in every workplace, it can be managed more constructively so that disputes are resolved through early intervention. I utilize a facilitative approach to mediation to resolve these disputes before they escalate and become costly in terms of lost productivity or outside legal expenses. As a former Human Resources executive, I also understand the delicate balance between business needs and employee advocacy. I help both parties understand the risks and opportunities associated with the case. While my style is facilitative, I can comfortably shift to a more evaluative mode if the circumstances dictate.


Fees are negotiable based on either a 1/2 day or full day rate and include all pre mediation conferences and document review.
