Civil Roster Mediator Details

I have a flexible schedule and enjoy working with diverse cultural groups. I accommodate the needs of the parties in mediation, including using technology. I am nonjudgmental, compassionate and committed to helping parties, sometimes experiencing high emotion, work through their conflict. I coach parties in private meetings to help them prepare for the sometimes difficult conversations that occur in the mediation process. I adapt the mediation process and guide the parties to resolution.
