"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 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 divorce or in the midst of divorce, mediation is a healthier alternative to costly and contentious litigation. Mediation lets families determine their outcome with dignity and in a manner more flexible than courts allow. Mediation is faster, cheaper and less stressful than hiring opposing lawyers to argue your case. Mediations is confidential.

Functioning families struggle when conflicting interests arise that are too difficult to resolve on your own; and, mediation can help.  For families with a special needs child, mediation can help establish guidelines and expectations within the home or between parents and educators. 

Your time and money are more wisely spent on collaboration instead of litigation.
