Mediation Services

Resolving conflict when the relationship matters — that’s what we do.

We bring together professionals in mediation, conflict coaching, child and family advocacy, and financial planning to offer a holistic approach to resolving disputes so the issues are settled while the relationships move forward.

Family

We help families settle difficult disputes while preserving relationships with all those impacted. Common issues include divorce, marital conflict, adoption, paternity, estates, and elder care.

Business

Business conflicts put more than profits on the line. ?We help businesses realign relationships around common values to resolve issues that threaten reputation, client relationships, and productivity.

Faith Community

At their heart, conflicts within a community are really family conflicts?impacted deeply by commonly held beliefs. We help community members utilize shared beliefs as a guide to resolution of the issues.

Organization

Organizational conflicts arise when people with limited interaction join to accomplish a goal. We help resolve underlying conflict and build working relationships for future issues.

For that I am grateful. ~Virginia, Client
