Mediation and Coaching Services
Mediation is a creative, collaborative and confidential process that can save you and your family from the stress and
financial strain of traditional litigation. My mission is to create a respectful decision-making space for
changing families wanting to make important decisions about their children, and/or their new non-spousal relationship.
In mediation, we address the issues that matter most to you. I manage the process while you make the decisions.
I integrate co-parent coaching and education into joint sessions as needed.
My clients have all kinds of gifts and challenges. I assist them in creating plans for: children of all developmental stages,
from in-utero to teens and young adults; parents and/or children with neurodivergence, ADHD, or substance use disorder;
pets (who many consider their children); and families with unique work schedules or circumstances that require customized creativity. The families I work with are committed to making developmentally appropriate,
child-centered agreements and building skillful co-parent relationships.
*Virtual and telephone appointments available.
Divorce and Separation Mediation and Coaching
Whether you are starting the process, or need to update an agreement, mediation is an opportunity to make important decisions - such as how to talk to kids about divorce, parenting time, communication, plans for pets - in a safe, neutral space. I integrate co-parent coaching into mediation, which can help strengthen co-parenting relationships and skills. I often partner with legal mediators, attorneys and financial experts to meet your needs throughout the divorce process.
Step Family Mediation and Coaching
Whether you are moving in with a new partner or re-marrying, this can be a trying time for all family members, especially kids. It can sometimes be more stressful than the divorce itself. But it can be done in a way that minimizes stress for all! I provide both mediation and coaching services to help families make a healthy transition. Getting professional support through this process is a gift you can give your new partner and your children.
Adoption, Guardianship and 3rd Party Mediation
Mediation is often a part of the placement process. Some families need support making agreements about custody, visitation and communication with grandparents or other extended family members. Every child's story is unique and the services families receive should be as well. In mediation, adoptive/ guardian families and biological families work together to best meet the needs of their children, so they can grow up with clear expectations, surrounded by love.
I mediate a variety of personal, family, business, and community issues. Feel free to email me for a free 15 minute phone consult so we can assess whether my services are a good fit for your needs.
