Description of Practice
I serve on the Civil Court Mediation Panel of the Superior Court of Alameda County. In addition to my specialty of Elder Mediation, I have also led numerous Community Mediations, as well as court-based Guardianship and Civil Harassment mediations.
During 30+ years as a facilitator, I have guided large community-based organizations through highly emotional meetings and supported families facing challenging decisions associated with the aging process.
I'm also an experienced trainer and coach for classes and workshops teaching skills in intercultural and/or nonviolent communication, conflict management, and mediating with older adults.
I am a member of the American Society on Aging (ASA) and the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR), where I have served as Finance Chair of the Elder Mediation Section.
