2006

For me, mediation has been a calling more than a strategic career choice. Luckily or unluckily, I was first drawn into the field of alternative dispute resolution during my third and final year of my graduate studies in creative arts therapy. There I was wrapping up my practicum hours, intending to head off into a job as a counsellor, when I suddenly realized that it was my volunteer work as a peace-making circle "keeper" --not my counselling placements --where I shone the brightest and felt most at home. Unable to deny the draw, I landed a job right out of therapy school as a counsellor/mediator started taking courses in mediation. I haven't looked back since.

Eleven years later, I no longer do any counselling work. Still, I find that the interpersonal skills of deep and empathic listening, as well as my knowledge about family systems, group dynamics and the emotional challenges of change provide a solid foundation upon which I have built my mediation practice. I utilize my creative approach in workshops on mediation and when working within organizations to design and facilitate conflict resolution processes. Additionally, I completed my Certificate in Family Mediation through the JIBC and received my Comprehensive Family Mediator designation through Family Mediation Canada. These credentials have given me the specific skills and knowledge of family law required to help separating couples come apart relationally and financially in ways that minimize their suffering and maximize their chance of forming cooperative, post-separation co-parenting relationships.
