Child Protection Roster Mediation Details
I provide facilitation of multi-party issues, planning sessions, negotiation preparation, mediation and negotiation training. I also have experience working with immigrant Chinese communities.


I focus on creating an atmosphere that fosters open communication around sensitive issues.

My mediation practice has encompassed a number of areas. I began mediating child protection disputes in 1993. I appreciate working with First Nations in the area of child protection, and have participated in traditional circles involving these matters. I have also worked with families, organizations, businesses, police forces, firefighters, land claims negotiators, labour unions, neighbours, the media, environmental groups, educational institutions and others to resolve conflict.

As an instructor, I have worked throughout Canada, the United States and Great Britain. I am a senior instructor with the Justice Institute and since 1991 I have taught all levels of mediation, negotiation and facilitation skills, which includes Mediation-specific training,a Certificates in Conflict resolution from the Justice Institute, commercial mediation through the B.C. International Commercial Arbitration Centre, Screening for Abuse and Organizational Intervention.

Music and sailing are personal passions.
