Couple & Family Therapist, Mediator & Collaborative Law Professional
Comments on Profession
I am a trauma-informed mediator which means that services include education on the effects, prevention, and recovery of trauma. Visit my website for free information on trauma. I utilize mostly the facilitative style of mediation which includes being less directive, rarely providing my opinion, orchestrating the process, leaving outcomes to the parties, asking a lot of questions to encourage understanding, assisting parties to develop and evaluate their own proposals for settlement. I ensure the process is tailored to clients’ needs and I am process driven. I may also use the evaluative style of mediation which includes the assessment of strengthens and weaknesses and may give directives, my opinion or advice on occasion. Given the level of trust that develops between myself and the parties, the transformative style of mediation may occur which focusing on the party’s relational interaction, focusing on change in the quality of conflict, leading from behind with patience, and I may translate, reframe or reinterpret issues.
