My professional background is that I have been a community organizer, a researcher and writer, an organizational executive director, an attorney, a judge, a university professor, a law professor, an arbitrator, a facilitator, coach, organizational consultant and mediator.


I have been a full time mediator for over thirty years and have mediated thousands of disputes covering all areas of conflict.

My approach to mediation is to be present and flexible so I can respond to the needs of the parties in the moment, whatever they may be. Sometimes that will require the use of facilitative, directive, transformative, or other styles and techniques, and may shift from moment to moment.
