Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: As an attorney, I experienced the contentious and expensive nature of legal disputes and realized litigation is not always the best way for parties to resolve their disputes. I opened a mediation practice to offer parties other options in finding solutions to their family law concerns. I enjoy the challenges of getting people from varying perspectives to listen to and communicate with each other, enabling them to work through their differences and, ultimately, reach mutually beneficial agreements.
Q: What qualities do you think a successful mediator should have?
A: Parties seeking my divorce and eldercare mediation services are often at a stressful time in their lives. I am here to listen without passing judgment and to create a supportive environment that allows all parties to be equally heard.
