Laura Tarcea is a family and community mediator. She is committed to supporting families go through divorce or separation in the best possible manner and in accordance to their unique needs. With a background in Psychology, Mental Health, Research and Community Development, she bringsvaluable insight and critical knowledge to parents. Depending on each family’s needs, she often employs a co-mediation model to ensure an efficient and cost-effective process. While she conducts child-focused mediation, she equally recognizes the necessity of parental support. Just like in an emergency on a plane, adults/caregivers need to put their masks on first before helping anyone.
