Civil Roster Mediation Details
I specialize in working with high conflict situations and facilitating durable resolutions in ways that will minimize costs, preserve relationships and promote independence. I have worked extensively with families, non-profit groups, corporations and government. I also have a lot of experience working across cultures and diversity, with multicultural groups and organizations and with marginalized and excluded individuals and groups. I am a member of the Civil and Family Rosters. I am also a Civil Arbitrator and Parenting Coordinator. I also specialize in distance mediation using both web-based video conference and teleconference options.
