Mediation Services

Are you stressed and exhausted by a conflict you’re involved in?
Are you ready for negotiated resolution and some peace in your life?
Mediation may be the answer you’re looking for.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a non-judicial, non-adversarial method of resolving conflict. A mediator is an impartial facilitator of this process. The goal is to assist the participants to discover and communicate their vision of the resolution of their conflict and to facilitate the negotiation of agreements that meet the needs of all involved. An agreement is created by the participants wherein the participants agree to specific actions that will allow them to move forward and transform their conflict into positive, peaceful and lasting resolution.

At the root of all conflict are peoples’ unmet needs.
Mediation is an opportunity to turn your conflict into a collaborative, creative process resulting in agreements that meet everyone’s needs.

Benefits of Mediation

  • Empowers people to take responsibility for making their own decisions, rather than have a judge, arbitrator, employer or someone else make decisions for them
  • Allows conflicts to be resolved peacefully, privately and confidentially
  • Increases communication, understanding and problem-solving skills
  • Is often less expensive, less stressful, and less time-consuming than litigation
  •  Has the greatest potential to preserve and restore relationships
     This is especially important when a continuing relationship is desired or mandatory, such as with families, co-parents, colleagues, friends and neighbors.
