Family Dispute Resolution can help.
It’s objective. Unbiased. Fair. Effective.

Family Dispute Resolution is for couples who are working toward an outcome that is in the best interests of all parties, especially the children.

It involves having a mediator, in this case, me (a clinical psychologist with over 17 years’ experience), who helps you resolve as many disputes as possible.

Even if it was years ago, at some point, you and your partner were on the same page. Maybe we can’t find that exact page again, but we can definitely start a new chapter – together.

The benefits of my Family Dispute Resolution mediation

Positive outcomes

Family Dispute Resolution is a step-by-step process that helps all parties work toward a common goal. In my practice, my priority is achieving the best outcomes for your children.

The problem is, without mediation, emotions can get in the way of making progress. The reason Dispute Resolution has a high rate of achieving positive outcomes is because there’s a safe space for all parties to talk honestly and respectfully.

There is no judgement or impartiality from me, just a single-minded, objective focus to achieve the best outcome for all involved.

Be in control of your situation

Although your circumstances may seem to be spinning out of control, getting everything back on track is 100% within your control.

It may not seem that way especially if you’ve been trying to resolve differences without success, but it can get back on track through mediation.

If your case goes to court, the control is taken from you. Perhaps what you really want will not be granted through the court process, but it could be accessible through objective and logical discussions in family dispute resolution.

Save money

If you’ve been to court, you know how expensive it is. It can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars up to tens of thousands of dollars. The irony is, you might take each other to court, and the court decides on a path that you could have agreed on (for a fraction of the cost!) through mediation.

Reduce stress

I’m not going to pretend that mediation is a completely stress-free experience. Being in a room with your partner or spouse may in itself be a difficult experience; making decisions may be a challenging task; discussing the future may be a hard path.

But unfortunately, going to court can be a far more stressful experience because the power and control to make changes is handed to strangers. You can retain that power and reduce stress through family dispute resolution.

Specialist mediation that is objective, fair and gets results.

There are several reasons why so many clients choose to work with me. One of the reasons is the fact that I can achieve results while being objective, neutral, compassionate and empathetic.

In addition, my area of specialty is Forensic Psychology, where I’m often called upon by the courts to be an expert witness in family court cases. In preparation of these cases, I conduct assessments, write reports, and provide recommendations to the court.

This means, I know how the legal system works. With my expertise, rather than leaving decisions to lawyers, we can work together  to make the right decisions for you and your family.
