Gail Ferraioli is trained in Imago Relationship Theory/Clinical Couples Work; Nonviolent Communication; Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction; Mediation; and Restorative Justice and Peace Circles. Gail is a Couples Workshop presenter; an Advanced Practitioner Member of the Family Section of the Association for Conflict Resolution; an Advanced Mediator Member of the Academy of Professional Family Mediators; an Accredited Member of the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation; Past President of the Rochester Association of Family Mediators; and is a Certified Restorative Justice (RJ) and Peace Circle Facilitator and trainer of RJ Community Conferencing.

For over thirty years, Gail Ferraioli has empowered and encouraged adults, families and children to optimize their interpersonal skills and self-understanding to promote an inner sense of well-being, healthy communication and harmonious relationships. She has combined professional experience in mediation, facilitation, advocacy, human rights,counseling, mindfulness and executive leadership.


Gail believes that people are innately capable of accessing their own wisdom with the right support. Because life’s difficulties sometimes obscure the path to problem-solving in a peaceful manner, conflict can arise as much out of fear, anger, and self-defense as well as from diffferences that present themselves as insurmountable. Gail has confidence that conflict can be seen as an opportunity for personal transformation and encourages each party to determine areas of acceptance, compromise and accountability as well as to affirm their own voices and both listen to and hear that of the other.
