Our Philosophy at Family Co-Mediation
Our philosophy and practice of family co-mediation evolves from our combined half century of experience in the fields of mental health and law. We believe that couples and families who are seeking assistance with resolving conflict are best served by an experienced team of two co-mediators who can draw upon a complimentary set of skills and disciplines.

Although it may not be as lucrative for us to practice as a team, we believe we can offer a qualitatively better service in this modality.

It is not merely the unique delivery of our combined skills and experience that differentiates us. We believe mediation is fundamentally about helping our clients explore the range of potential agreements beyond those defined by pre-conceived ideas and expectations.

In the area of divorce mediation, for example, the mediation process at Family Co-Mediation does not necessarily have to end up with a divorce!  We firmly believe that our mediation services are not about achieving any particular result other than what our clients seek to achieve.

At Family Co-Mediation we believe that many clients have the potential to gain the understanding and skills that can enable them to resolve future conflicts on their own.  Our partnering process offers our clients a learning experience, with the tools and resources they will be able to use in the future.

Our goal, in the end, is to provide the best possible environment to enable our clients to become their best selves in a very trying time. When we accomplish this, our clients come to appreciate how much better tomorrow seems than yesterday.
