Description of Practice

As a liberal-minded mediator who's been working with couples and families in conflict for over 30 years, I know how to say what’s hard to hear with a personal style that’s simultaneously direct and compassionate. I also have a knack for disentangling historically complicated issues while maintaining everyone's dignity along the way. And, my fees are reasonable!

Professional Background

I am not a lawyer. I'm a Reform Rabbi who specializes in conflict. Long ago it became obvious to me that seasoned clergy of all faiths frequently find themselves resolving conflict: between married partners, in family businesses and within their own houses of worship...all the groups they care about. Rabbis, Ministers, Priests and Imams bring a sacred sensibility to the imperative of making peace where there is strife. And no matter where you pray, bridge building is nothing less than sacred work.

Experience

I've worked with dozens of divorcing couples, families in business disputes and communities in conflict.
