ADR Experience

Began mediating divorce and family disputes in 1978. I have mediated more than 600 such cases involving both heterosexual and homosexual couples. I have also had extensive experience organizational disputes, conflicts within congregations and with workplace disputes.
I have developed and taught in two master’s level programs in dispute resolution, at Antioch University and Royal Roads University.
I was editor of Mediation Quarterly (now Conflict Resolution Quarterly) for 6 years.


I believe that parties are fully capable of understanding their dispute, navigating their way through the maze of options, working through their anger and frustration, and coming to sensible and workable decisions.
My role as mediator is to support and assist them as they work through these challenges in order to find reasoned and durable agreements.
