When I first arrived in our practice 15 years ago, I brought hundreds of hours of training and a Specialization in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution from the Harvard Program on Negotiation. Little did I know that my most important training was about to begin! Working with my brilliant colleagues and inspiring clients has taught me that mediation isn’t just a vocation; it’s a philosophical mindset for being in the world, not only as as a professional peace-maker but as a neighbor, family member, and fellow human being. I remain deeply indebted to my fellow practictioners for this perspective and for the skills that allow me to always examine a conflict from every perspective possible.

I co-mediate with John on client request as well as provide mediation and conflict coaching on other family topics. I’ve managed our office’s client development and created our popular small group seminar program for other family professionals.
