Watch this client testimonial and learn why I mediate (58 seconds)
I have chosen to work in a field where I support people during challenging times. Several years ago I made the decision to utilize my skills and experience as a Management Consultant and Chairperson for a Federal Administrative Tribunal for a different purpose.
I have conducted hundreds of mediations and support people in making big and small decisions.
I also encourage my clients to consider the immediate and future impacts that these decisions could have. I am very passionate about mediation and I am proud to offer a child focused practice for my family clients and a solution focused process for my workplace clients.
I have specialized training and significant experience helping families with their asset and debt division and support responsibilities. This often translates into reduced stress and costs and the ability to move forward with a plan. I am also really impressed with how resilient the people I have worked with are and to bring out their creativity and resourcefulness while empowering them to separate consciously or with intention is an honour for me.
I am a qualified Family Dispute Resolution Professional under the BC Family Law Act and I am also a certified Comprehensive Family Mediator. This means that I am able to mediate all aspects of separation or divorce.
I also teach the Parenting After Separation Finances course as prepared by the Justice Education Society.
