Don't 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 certifications in Kansas, Missouri, California and Illinois, I welcome the chance to help.
Mediation can help with a plethora of disputes: divorce, co-parenting, special needs or difficult child (ren), blended family, elder care, employee, etc. Mediation promotes cooperation rather than contention. People talk openly and constructively while the mediator guides them toward an agreement. Relationships, if desired, can be preserved (even ameliorated) through mediation. All issues of contention can be addressed in mediation; it's not limited to rules of evidence or legal relevance.
Mediation is a healthier alternative to costly and contentious litigation. Mediation lets people 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 often settle in one or two sessions and, the process is completely confidential (unlike court).
When conflicting interests arise and become too difficult to resolve on your own. I can help.

Mediation is the least damaging alternative to other methods of resolving conflict, especially litigation, where emotions are inflamed, and relationships may be damaged beyond repair.
In mediation, parties feel safe and in control. They are more motivated to work together and craft a more equitable outcome. Since the people in dispute craft the resolution, they are more likely to abide by it. In litigation, you relinquish control to attorneys and a judge who make decisions concerning finances, child visitation, and property; there is often one winner and one loser.
Trials are costly in time, money, and emotional toll. During and after litigation, the parties often feel increased tensions and animosity toward each other. They are forced to defend themselves in a public courtroom. Control, compassion, and creativity are often lost in litigation; the aggravation is expensive.
