Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
"Helping people transform conflict since 1985." As a mediator, I am committed to assisting parties to resolve disputes with a mutually beneficial outcome. I practice and teach mediation based on the facilitative and transformative processes. I have been a mediator since 1985 and have conducted over 1200 mediations dealing with civil rights, business contracts, family, employment, neighborhoods and faith community disputes, for example.

I am a TMCA Credentialed Distinguished Mediator.

Professional Background

I have been in private practice since 1997 as a mediator and trainer. I am committed to helping families resolve disputes with the least damage to their children and their emotional and financial assets.

I am active in employment, real estate, and faith community mediations.

I spent 11 years with the U. S. Department of Justice as a Civil Rights mediator. My last year I worked directly with the Attorney General's Church Burning Response Team in Alabama. I offered mediation services to communities across the U. S., but primarily in Texas and Oklahoma. Our case work was defined by the 1964 Civil Rights Act and I handled cases dealing with issues of police excessive force, housing discrimination, access to services and educational opportunities.


I have been a mediator since 1985. My first training was provided by the Community Relations Service of the U. S. Department of Justice. I mediated over 1000 cases during my 11 years with DOJ. Since 1996, I have been in private business as a mediator and trainer. I provide mediation services dealing with a variety of issues, but my primary focus is employment,family, and faith based cases.

My approach to mediation is to follow the interests of the parties. If they are interested in a problem solving approach that is focued on outcome, I will assist them in moving toward settlement as quickly as possible. When relationships will be extended past the mediation, it is important to consider what those relationship will look like and how they can move forward without causing more harm. In these cases a more transformative approach to mediation is appropriate.
