Mediation is a conflict resolution process where two or more adult parties within their full mental capacities have a strong desire to resolve conflict fairly, efficiently, and cost effectively while de-escalating conflict and possibly preserving a relationship.


Family Mediation

Family conflict can arise from differences in personality, opinion, or vision, and can affect relations between individual members or the entire family. Sometimes an experienced, neutral mediator can help you work out a solution effectively.

We offer mediation and consultation services ranging from martial conflict to family conflict.


Team business project meetingWorkplace Conflict

Conflicts in the workplace albeit between partners, between managers, between employees, between a manager and an employee, or other combinations are normal, predictable, and can be resolved if addressed rather than ignored.

Effective conflict management requires training, and experience, both of which make conflict resolution more manageable and productive.

We provide training and mediation services to effectively manage and resolve workplace conflicts.

B2B Mediation: External Conflicts

Conflict between businesses is normal, predictable, and usually arises from misunderstandings and miscommunication. There are a host of other reasons for well-intended businesses to have conflict with other well intended businesses.

We offer mediation services giving parties more control over the process and the outcome, and most importantly, potentially preserving your business relationships.
