A trained mediator offers a calm, confident approach on the path toward constructive communication and the possibility of mutually beneficial resolution. These services can be helpful in a variety of contexts, from human resources concerns to family and relationship issues. Mediation is available for organizations as well as individuals where all parties consent to entering a discussion.
My training through and commitment to the Harvard Mediation Program model requires me to practice neutrality. I work to ensure that all parties are safe and have the opportunity to express their concerns and goals as freely as possible. I have several associates who can join me as co-mediators when this is requested by the parties or seems advisable based on circumstances. Mediation can take place in one session or a series of sessions depending on the preferences of those involved.
