My approach to mediation has been described as “creating a problem solving atmosphere with caring, compassion and understanding”. Through fairness and neutrality, I work with families to clarify expectations, build cohesiveness and trust when trust may have been broken. My passion lies in assisting families in crisis to resolve the issues surrounding their separation and/or divorce, and how best to help your children and you through this very difficult time. Through my extensive experience and time working as a presenter for the Parenting After Separation sessions, I have learned that no two families are the same and that you as their parents truly know what is best for your children.
Associate Family Mediator
I am an associate member of the Mediate BC roster. I come to mediation with 28 years experience dealing with social and substance abuse issues, and assisting citizens to address and resolve life issues in order to move forward with their lives.
My approach to mediation is about informing, guiding and empowering people to create solutions that take into consideration the best interest of all parties.
MA - Conflict Analysis and Management
Interpersonal differences and disagreements arise everywhere – in families, between couples, among neighbours, in the workplace. Conflict is inescapable. Dealing with conflict is never easy. Period.
Interestingly, I’m drawn to people in conflict. Well, maybe not to conflict per se, but to people. I enjoy supporting good working relationships and effective communication. Contributing to the wellbeing of families and children is gratifying. I have been mediating family, community, and workplace disputes professionally for a few decades. I am a member of Mediate B.C.’s Family and Child Protection Rosters and hold a degree in Conflict Analysis and Management from Royal Roads University in Victoria, B.C. Helping people to move forward - to envision, to problem solve and to reach agreement, is not just a job, it’s a privilege.
