Civil Roster Mediation Details
Mediation and facilitation of difficult conversations are part of my suite of services that I provide as a workplace consultant - in building a better workplace. I also coach leaders and teams and facilitate group dialogue and learning sessions on such things as collaborative practices.

At this time, I do not provide mediation under BC's Notice to Mediate regulation or disputes related to on-going judicial cases.

$200 - $275 / hour

To the above fees will be added GST and reasonable travel expenses. Minimum charge of two hours.

Cancellations within 24 hours of a scheduled mediation or facilitated conversation will result in a $500 fee, plus GST, plus any and all travel expenses incurred. Cancellations within 72 hours (3 days) of the scheduled mediation will result in a $100 administrative fee. Cancellations made with more than 72 hours (3 days) notice will not incur any charges.


I earned a Juris Doctor (J.D.) in the United States before immigrating to Canada in 2000. Seeking a deeper grounding in alternative dispute resolution, particularly in the context of workplace conflict, I took up the study of law again, this time at the University of British Columbia. I completed my Masters of Law (LL.M.) in 2002 and since this time have dedicated myself to building a better workplace through the promotion of dialogue, fair process, and organizational learning.

As a mediator, I seek to empower the parties to own their piece of the mediation process and take an active role in finding a meaningful and sustainable solution to the conflict they are facing.

In addition to my work as a mediator and facilitator, I am a Certified Executive Coach and a Prosci certified change management practitioner. I work with leaders and teams to effect positive change in teams and organizations through human resources strategies, targeted skill development, conflict coaching and change management coaching.

I have extensive experience in health care, post-secondary education, and the regulated professions (e.g., physicians and nurses). Additionally, I am very knowledgeable of human rights laws and other regulations that ensure the harassment-free and psychologically safe workplace.
