Mediation Approach & Philosophy
“I dare to ask the right questions, even if they may be uncomfortable questions, in getting to the core of a conflict. In my role as mediator, I will always be myself and will call out what I see and hear. My goal is to create a safe, impartial environment during mediation. This setting cultivates the best mutual solutions in a conflict. I firmly believe in the benefits of mediation. Helping people to resolve their disputes and conflicts through mediation lowers stress and creates a happier, more productive future for all involved. I am a full-time professional mediator with great attention for a personal approach. My mediation services are available for national and international venues.”
