Description of Practice

I am a mediator and a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 15 years of clinical experience. I am the former directory of KIDS Turn, a non profit organization dedicated to providing group therapy and psycho-education to parents and children going thru divorce. My clinical skills allow for a more fluid, cost effective mediation process. My passion is helping couples become a stronger co-parenting team. Though mediation is not psychotherapy, I do believe that change and growth within the mediation process is possible. Feel free to contact me at zoemediation@gmail.com. I look forward to meeting you.

Approach

Dispute resolution is a platform to help two people reach aa agreement they otherwise would be unable to reach due to the nature of anger. Anger creates and amplifies projections and distortions. My approach is simple and direct, while also enhancing the communication dynamic to a place where both parties can be seen and heard more accurately. This is not psychotherapy. I am a neutral party here to help two people during a very difficult and vulnerable time in their lives.

I offer a flat fee of 3500$ for a package of which includes 4-6 1-1.5 hour sessions and the writing of the agreement. I also offer an hourly fee of 300$ per hour.
