Mediation is a confidential dispute resolution process that seeks to expose each parties’ interests, explore potential resolutions, and through collaborative effort arrive a mutually agreeable solution. I have 10 years of experience mediating child custody and family law disputes. My approach to mediation builds upon the knowledge and skills developed at the Pepperdine University’s Strauss Institute for Conflict and Dispute Resolution, Albert Ellis’ Rational Emotive Therapy techniques and Brief Therapy. I recognize that conflict is pervasive in our relationships, schools and communities and maladaptive strategies for managing conflict abound. In response, I strive to help the parties understand the true nature of the conflict, build the skills to cooperate with the other party, and develop a concrete plan for managing the conflict post-mediation.
