Mediation Approach & Philosophy
I help people to problem-solve their way to an agreement that is acceptable and beneficial to all. Along the way, participants have the opportunity to address feelings and concerns that may be standing in the way of agreement. My style of mediation is a hybrid of facilitative and transformative. I act as a guide to keep the parties on track and to explore beyond their positions.
