Family Roster Mediation Details
I have experience assisting individuals with special needs and those from varied cultural/ethnic backgrounds as well as same sex couples.


Fee may vary based on complexity of the matter and number of parties involved.

24 hours required.


I have been a member of the Ontario and BC Bar since 1990. I began mediating in 1987 while still attending law school. I currently work as in-house counsel on a part time basis and have a private mediation practice. I mediate a wide range of civil disputes including court related matters.

My mediation style offers parties a solid commitment to neutrality and fairness. I endeavour to ensure that everyone has a voice and that there is a full exchange of information leading to successful and positive resolutions.

I am currently a member of the Civil and Family Rosters of Mediate BC, a member of the Child Protection Mediation Roster (M.A.G.) affiliated with Mediate BC, a mentor in the Court Mediation Program (Small Claims) and a Lead Mediator in Mediate BC's Family Mediation Program. I am also a certified Comprehensive Family Mediator as accredited by Family Mediation Canada.
