Approach

“My focus in Family Dispute Resolution is on giving separating parents insight into how their conflict is affecting their children and support them to transition smoothly into a co-parenting alliance.

I can also provide child inclusive mediation, for those who wish to give their children an opportunity to express their feelings about the changes to their family in a safe and supportive environment (in person only), and faith-based mediation for those who would find a more spiritual approach to mediation comforting (online and in person.)”
