"Dont find fault; find a remedy."- Henry Ford
Conflict is inevitable albeit, stressful. I can help you get through difficult times successfully so you can transition into a better point in life. With over twenty years of mediation experience and certification in Kansas, Missouri,California and Illinois, I welcome the chance to work with you.
Mediation helps with a plethora of family disputes:
- divorce (pre, during and post)
- co-parenting plans that need revisions
- special needs or difficult child(ren) in the home or with the school
- blended-family issues
- elder care
Mediation can help with business & community disputes:
- conflict resolution officer for personnel and personality issues
- presentations on effective communication for communities and businesses
- employment, interpersonal & neighbor disputes on the verge of litigation
Mediation promotes cooperation rather than contention. People talk openly and constructively, while the mediator guides them toward agreement. Relationships, if desired, can be preserved (even ameliorated) through mediation. Most issues can be addressed in mediation; it's not limited to rules of evidence.
If you are considering litigation, mediation is a healthier alternative to the costly and contentious court process. Mediation lets you determine your outcome with dignity and in a more flexible manner than courts allow. Mediation is faster, cheaper and less stressful than hiring opposing lawyers to argue your case. Mediation is confidential. Unlike court, it is not of public record.
Functioning families and business struggle when conflicting interests arise that are too difficult to resolve on your own. Mediation can help. For families with a special needs child, mediation may help establish guidelines and expectations between parents and educators.
