MD Divorce Mediator Carolyn Finney

Carolyn Finney, M.A.

One of the incalculable rewards of my work as a mediator and conflict coach is witnessing our clients’ pride and accomplishment at the conclusion of their process. From frustration and despair, options have been invented, doors opened, and hopefulness rekindled. Our clients depart surprised by their capacity for innovative thinking, resilience, and forward-facing perspectives.

My colleagues and clients inspire me daily, and I’ve learned from them that mediation isn’t just a vocation; it’s a philosophical mindset with the potential to greatly enrich how we interact with our extended family, our community, and the world at large. I also facilitate our office’s workshops on interacting with high conflict individuals, and I serve as a coach for attorneys, therapists, retired judges and others seeking mediation training and certification.
