Approach

Amy’s approach to mediation is grounded in fostering open communication, empathy, and mutual respect. At the heart of her mediation philosophy lies the belief that most disputes can be settled amicably with the right guidance and support.

Amy’s approach is to empower individuals and organizations to actively participate in shaping the outcome of their conflicts, rather than leaving decisions solely in the hands of others, and to create a safe and neutral space where all parties can express their perspectives freely, without fear of judgment or bias. Through active listening and empathetic engagement, Amy helps participants explore underlying interests, identify common ground, and brainstorm creative solutions.

Transparency, confidentiality, and fairness are paramount values in Amy’s mediation practice. She upholds strict ethical standards to ensure integrity and trustworthiness throughout the mediation process and facilitates a respectful environment in which all voices are heard.

Because every conflict is unique, Amy’s approach is flexible and adaptable to accommodate diverse needs and circumstances. Her goal is not just to resolve immediate disputes but to preserve professional relationships when possible and promote an ongoing workplace culture of open cooperation and collaboration.
