Business and Employment

Conflicts in the workplace and in business can produce an incredible amount of stress and tension impacting well-being, health and peace of mind. By facilitating effective communication, the key to resolution, many issues can be resolved including sexual harassment, discrimination, employee grievances, workplace bullying, wrongdoing, financial losses, contract formation and partnership, ownership and family business disputes. 

Family and Divorce

Litigation can be incredibly stressful on families as well as expensive and time consuming. Divorce attorneys may also have trouble getting past certain issues because they are not practiced in the art of compromise. Family mediators can fortunately help at any time, even before the divorce process starts. Personal desires can be expressed and assimilated into the final agreement as opposed to being handed a handful of outcomes by the court in the divorce litigation process. The issues addressed include:

  • Property and debt distribution
  • Alimony and spousal support
  • Child support, custody and schedules
  • Parenting plans and coordination
  • Health care and insurance

Elder Care

Decision-making around how to care for older adults can be complicated and conflicts during the course of an elder’s care can make both the elder and adults involved feel overwhelmed and vulnerable. Fortunately, mediation provides an avenue towards clarity and a consideration of options for everyone involved.  The following issues can be addressed:

  • Guardianship
  • Health and medical care
  • Finances
  • Legal matters
  • Living arrangements
  • Communication issues
  • Family relationships
  • Respite care
  • Support for caregivers
  • Personal maintenance
  • Safety, Autonomy and Self-determination

Attorneys, medical professionals, social workers, residence staff, relatives and children, spiritual care givers and friends can all find resolution and satisfaction with the help of a mediator.
