Welcome to Midwest Mediation

I provide a safe space and facilitate you in finding your best way forward in making decisions about your children, the family home, finances and the future.

The word ‘conflict’ usually invokes thoughts of battle, shouting matches, or even negative relationships. This is a limited perspective, which sets us up to miss powerful opportunities to take advantage of the creative forces of conflict. Conflict is a natural part of relationships and human evolution, communication and growth.

The quality of our lives depends not on whether or not we have conflicts, but on how we respond to them. – Tom Crum

For me, working creatively with conflict means working in a spirit of curiosity and mutual respect, being committed to the facilitation of a mediation process that enables the parties to find the best solution for them.

Experienced Mediator & Solicitor…

I enable people resolve their disputes in a constructive and less expensive way, which leads to fair compromises and much greater satisfaction in their final agreements. My practice is wide and varied, and I specialize in a number of areas, including working with separating couples (comprehensive separation agreements and parenting plans), families/ siblings, workplace disputes, communities, and conflict coaching, among others.
Mediation is a process in which an independent, neutral Mediator assists two or more disputing parties in resolving the dispute in a collaborative, consensual manner. Most disputes can be successfully mediated. I work fulltime in this area, and I am also a qualified solicitor. While I do not provide legal advice as part of the mediation process, my legal background informs my work, and benefits the disputing parties indirectly.
