I am a highly trained and experienced mediator. I specialize in mediations in which the parties are at an impasse and want to find a way to move toward a resolution of their own making.
I provide mediation services across all subject areas:Â family and divorce, business, workplace and interpersonal.Â I have been intensely involved in the field of mediation since 1995, as both a leader and a practitioner.Â I write mediation articles,Â conduct workshops, moderate presentations, lead discussion groups for mediators, and am on a variety of mediation panels and rosters.
I am a past co-president of the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater New York, and work very hard to enhance the practice of mediation in all realms. I am a graduate of Columbia Law School and was formerly a member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and worked on the Mediation Qualification Subcommittee.
