FAMILY MEDIATION AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION
I believe that mediation is the best and most productive way to resolve conflict. Mediation allows you to design your own agreement and define your own path forward.
Every family is unique, as is every conflict.
Let's work together to find a resolution.
I am a native of New York and New Jersey and have lived in Atlanta since 2003. I have worked in the field of social work for nearly 20 years across multiple settings. I have been a registered mediator in Georgia since 2017.
I began this mediation practice simply because I believe that through mediation, conflicts can be resolved in a less contentious way than through the court system.
I believe this to be particularly true for divorce and other family conflicts because it allows families to determine for themselves a solution that works for them, while limiting financial and emotional stress.
In addition to private practice, I currently mediate civil cases at the Justice Center of Atlanta.
I believe strongly in the power of mediation as a way to resolve conflict outside of the court system, predominantly because mediation allows you to determine for yourself how you are going to move forward towards a resolution.
I use the facilitation style of mediation which is just what it sounds like. As the mediator, I am a neutral party. I will control the process of the mediation by asking questions, finding specific areas of conflict, identifying areas of agreement and mutual interest, focusing the discussion and guiding parties towards an agreement. The parties involved control and own the resolution or outcome.
