I have over 20 years experience as a domestic mediator. I have 7 grown children and am very familiar with the impact of divorce / separation on minor children.
I have been mediating as a volunteer through Conflict Resolution Services after being certified in Domestic Mediation through Resolution Services Center in Lansing, Michigan June of 2022. I have also completed the Level 1 training in Kingian Nonviolence through On Earth Peace. I see mediation as a creative way for people to have a say in resolving their own conflicts. It gives each party the opportunity to speak respectfully and to be heard with the help of a neutral listener.
As the director of Conflict Resolution Services, I have gained much experience as a mediator in a very short amount of time. I started mediating in 2021 and am now trained in Domestic Relations, General Civil, Elder Care, Behavioral Health and Special Education Mediation.
My degrees in communication and business provide me with a solid foundation of knowledge to help parties in a variety of situations find common ground to resolve their disputes.
