Helping People Resolve Conflict Through Conversation
My practice focuses on supporting couples, families, friends, and those in business relationships, collaboratively resolve conflict through productive, facilitated conversations. Family mediation enables spouses, adult siblings, parents, grandparents, and/or other extended family members address topics of concern or conflict among them. Topics frequently addressed in mediation include: wills, estates and trusts; care planning and caregiving; decision making; family roles and responsibilities; communication; end of life planning; distribution of family heirlooms or collectibles; residential options for ill or aging family members; divorce, co-parenting and post-divorce concerns; small family business planning and/or disputes; parent/teen issues; and marital, co-habitation or other relationship conflicts. I also offer mediation of non-family disputes involving small businesses, neighbors, friends, landlords and tenants, or others experiencing conflict which they wish to resolve privately, collaboratively and in a non-adversarial setting.

Clients come from all areas of metropolitan Boston and beyond. In adult family mediations, extended family members often travel to the mediation from out of state or may participate by audio or video conference. To ensure that scheduling works for everyone in these cases, I offer mediation in the evenings and on weekends.
