Approach

Annie honors the self-determining principle of mediation, making sure that the decision-making power rests in the hands of the parties themselves. She uses a collaborative approach to mediation wherein the mediator is a neutral third party who facilitates communication between all the parties and assists each party to hear and understand each other's point of view. She ensures that everyone has equal time to talk and helps the parties generate options and ultimately develop their own mutually agreeable solution.
