Approach

Jan subscribes to the self-determining principle of mediation, insuring that the decision-making power rests in the hands of the parties. She values a relational approach believing that how people communicate with one another has as much to do with conflict as the issues. She uses a collaborative approach to mediation wherein the mediator is an impartial third party who facilitates communication between all the parties and assists each party to hear and understand each other's needs and interests. She ensures that everyone has equal time to talk and helps the parties generate options and ultimately develop their own mutually agreeable solution.If desired, Jan can assist parties in reducing their agreements to writing in a Memorandum of Understanding which can be incorporated into court orders.

Fees

$140 per mediation hour to be divided however parties choose. This fee includes a Lead Mediator and co-mediator present during all mediation hours.
