My Mediation Signature:

My goal is to offer a fair and balanced environment to make sure everyone involved in the mediation feels they have been heard and understood.   I offer a fresh perspective on meditation and conflict resolution in general, by using creative methods to help resolve issues.  My philosophy is to encourage participants to see past their positions which are what they feel, to recognize their shared interests which is why they feel this way.  I then use this knowledge to empower the participants to collaboratively develop solutions to their issue that will be a win-win for everyone involved.

My Background & Experience:

I am a Certified Mediator who has have been working in the mediation field for over several years.  I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology, and then went on to successfully achieve my Masters degree in Conflict Analysis & Resolution.  I am also a certified Paralegal.

I have a well-rounded background that allows me the benefit of being relatable and comfortable interacting with diverse groups of people.  In addition, I do not approach a case with any preconceived solutions or notions that can often result from years of practice in the legal field. Therefore, I am able to see the possibilities for reconciliation and resolution, rather than the legal hurdles and ramifications of a case.

I have completed over one hundred eighty hours of training in various aspects of Alternative Dispute Resolution such as:

  • Basic Mediation
  • Community Mediation
  • Divorce Mediation
  • Parenting Plan Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Facilitation

 

I have mediated a myriad of cases ranging in subject matters such as:

  • Family Relationships (Parent-Teen, Parenting Plan, Separation Agreement)
  • Divorce
  • Cohabitation Disputes
  • Commission on Common Ownership Communities (CCOC)cases
  • Employment
  • Workplace Conflict
  • Landlord-Tenant
  • Contract Disputes
  • Credit and Finance Disputes

I decided to start Resolve Together, LLC because I am passionate about advancing the mediation field.  My mission is to further progress the popularity and use of mediation to resolve conflicts in our society.  To encourage the practice of making mediation the first option rather than the last resort.
