As a workplace mediator, I specialize in two areas:
– Partnering with HR to handle the intransigent conflicts, the effects of which they see rippling throughout departments (or an entire workplace);
– Resolving problems between co-leaders who no longer see eye-to-eye – and may not be able to stand even being in the same room together.
What makes me stand out? When it comes to mediation, I only do workplace – and my other work focuses on helping leaders build happier workplaces. What to know before you work with me.
What can you expect if we work together? As a trained professional mediator, I use a facilitative process to allow all parties to speak their own truths, with the common goal of coming up with your own solution – one all parties can stick to. From individual consultations, to expertly facilitated joint sessions, to recommendations for post-mediation, I guide you to your own best solution.
Choosing a mediator is about a lot of things. Beyond recognizing the need for professional help to resolve a conflict, you also need to consider:
– Accessibility – mediation can be done at your office, at mine, or online – we offer all three options.
– Personality & Experience – you really need to talk with the mediator you plan to hire to understand the process and get a feel for what it would be like to work with this person. That’s why we do free phone consultations for all parties before any costs are incurred.

Over 5 years of mediation experience and more than a decade facilitating groups to move toward consensus and make decisions.
At Chantilly Mediation and Facilitation, we co-create the right scope of work for each client, with each client. Do you need individual consultations? How many are appropriate? Is there a team component or group facilitation that may be necessary in addition to resolving an issue between two people? Is it even clear that the team issue is due to a conflict, or something else?
We work with you to figure out what is needed – and then we execute the scope, excellently.
