Family Roster Mediator Details

2003
Fluency in Portuguese and experience in multi-cultural family issues.
I have a wholehearted interest in helping individuals, groups and organizations find new ways to achieve resolution and to transform relationships wherever practical. My approach is to assist participants in identifying and achieving their mutual goals within a down-to-earth environment.

I have conducted mediations in the Provincial Court of BC, Small Claims Division and in my private mediation/consulting practice. A significant portion of my business deals with dispute resolution including acting as a mediator, facilitator and fact-finder.

As a mediator I practice in the areas of civil and commercial disputes in community/neighborhood, schools/education/university, real estate/strata corporation and all business.

I mediate separating and divorcing couples in order for them to reach agreement with their plans for what happens next in their lives.

Through coaching I talk with each individual and help them become aware of how and why the conflict was created in the first place and support each person in making changes that will be for their best.

My education background includes studies at UBC, SFU, BCIT, JIBC, and the CLEBC.

I am a Certified Comprehensive Family Mediator with Family Mediation Canada and have been a member of the Civil Roster of Mediate BC since 2003.
