My mission is to carry the message that there is a better way to look at, and respond to, conflict. During the past 20 years, I have successfully mediated thousands of disputes and developed expertise in resolving personal and professional relationship conflicts. Today, my goal is to provide strategic conflict management and creative relationship interventions to married and divorcing couples, estranged families, business partners, communities, and co-workers.
Much of my current mediation practice centers on my work with David Spofford at A Friendly Divorce. David and I use a unique co-mediation model that offers male-female balance, an awareness of both the legal and emotional issues of divorce, and an opportunity to save financial resources and heartache. At A Friendly Divorce, we also provide document preparation services in order to help the couples we work with obtain uncontested divorces. Additionally, David and I are now offering training programs to professionals who want to launch or expand their practices to include pro-se/pre-suit divorce mediation. In addition to the live training which is held each summer in Florida and in collaboration with mediation organizations in other venues, we have a 10 DVD/1 CD set that includes our extensive training manual and agreement templates.
As a Primary Trainer with Mediation Training Group, I have taught mediation nationally and internationally to over ten thousand professionals. Please consider Mediation Training Group’s offerings if you want to become a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator, acquire mediation skills to enhance your professional or personal life, or experience Continuing Mediator Education that is both entertaining and rich in content. In addition, Susan Dubow and I are working on a variety of other projects so that we can help bring mediation into the mainstream. Take a look at www.TheMediatorsRoundTable.com to learn more.
I am interested how I can help you improve your relationships using workplace agreements, business partnership accords, dating contracts, prenuptial agreements, and marriage pacts. Please accept this invitation to expand the dialogue - email me your questions and comments.

What is conflict consciousness? Our conflicts - both the internal and the external - are our best teachers. Few of us grow, change, or learn in the absence of conflict. Conflict Consciousness is the process of looking at your conflicts in order to see - for yourself - where you are as well as where you could be.We are in the consciousness age and our conflicts are critical components - on personal, tribal, and global levels. Every conflict has a lesson to teach - about you individually or society as a whole. Now is the time for you to become more conflict conscious so you can grasp the lesson and incorporate it in your life.Stay tuned. More will be revealed.
