Mediation is a process for parties to achieve their desired outcome; therefore, I respect and follow the interests of the parties. Taking a facilitative approach, I help parties problem-solve and achieve agreements as efficiently as possible. When parties will maintain a relationship after an agreement is achieved, a transformative approach may be implemented.
