    Profession: Family and Divorce Mediator - Certified through Iowa Association of Mediators
    Comments: As a neutral third party, I help clients find their own solutions to asset division, co-parenting plans and/or modifications to prior decrees. My role is to ensure that the conversation feels safe, respectful and productive. Whether or not the parties arrive at agreement, a well mediated conversation can help participants feel more clear, calm, confident, focused and decisive. Conflict is unavoidable, but steering into it, by engaging in a respectful dialogue, allows you to turn a draining set of worries into a constructive plan forward. As a trained and sensitive attendant to the conversation, I will use summary and inquiry to invite deep listening, full expression and mutual engagement.
