Gainesville and Boca Raton, Florida

Thank you for considering me as your mediator. Hopefully reading my bio – below – will aid you as you come to a decision regarding who will best serve you through the mediation process.

My Areas of Expertise Include:

  • Professional and personal relationship disputes,
  • Divorce and paternity matters where the parties are unrepresented or represented by attorneys,
  • The process of family re-structuring due to death, divorce, aging, or estrangement,
  • Small business, professional practice, and business partnership issues, and
  • Workplace disputes.

I was born and raised in New York and lived in South Florida for over thirty years. Today, my home is Gainesville, FL.  (Go Gators!) During my career I have worked in small business and the legal system, in both the public and private sectors. As I continue to pursue my own growth and development some of my greatest accomplishments include:

  • Earning a PhD in Psychology, with a Specialization in Conflict Management
  • Licensure as a Mental Health Counselor, Licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist and Certification from the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC)
  • Certification from the Florida Supreme Court as a Mediator and Primary Mediation Trainer
  • Mediation of thousands of disputes, successfully assisting in conflict management and transformation
  • Designing and delivering numerous educational programs and personal growth workshops, seminars and presentations
  • The creation, operation and sale of two successful small businesses
  • Achieving professional expertise in family and workplace psychology and various positions within the family, juvenile, civil, and criminal court systems
  • Recognition from my peers for involvement in various professional organizations. I have served on the faculty of mediation and dispute resolution symposiums throughout Florida, nationally and internationally. I am an appointed member of the Florida Supreme Court’s Mediator Qualifications Board, a Past-President of the Association of South Florida Mediators and Arbitrators, a Past-Vice-President of the Florida Academy of Professional Mediators, and an Advanced Practitioner/Educator member of the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR)
  • Partnering with my husband, David, in a fulfilling marriage and our unique mediation practice
  • Raising two children (who lived through divorce) to adulthood, watching as they display integrity and passion in their lives.

My work as a mediator is geared towards encouraging the navigation of transitions from current circumstances to more ideal ones. This work allows me to tap into much of what I have learned from my own as well as others’ life experiences.

What I Can Offer You:

  • Compassion, clarification and understanding
  • Keen ability to see things that might otherwise be overlooked
  • Help with negotiation, communication, problem-solving, and conflict management skills
  • A positive, practical, holistic, humanistic, scientific, spiritual, and integrated perspective that stresses personal responsibility and individual choice
  • Assistance in creating collaboration and win-win results
  • An exploration of all sides of an issue and the possible actions and strategies for its optimal resolution

I know that I would enjoy speaking with you. Please contact me to discuss how we can work together and how I can assist you.
