Private & Caring Facilitation. I am not an attorney. I am a mediator, a neutral third party who can help facilitate your agreement in a safe, private and confidential environment. I prefer to keep parties together throughout the mediation in order to promote an environment of communication and transformation. I believe that mediation is the best way for parties to resolve their disputes because they control the results.
