Every day when I go to work, I'm so thankful for living in a small town. Where I can breathe fresh air, the sense of community, and practice my skills as a Mediator and preparation of Legal Documents.

Close to Yosemite, Sonora is in the California Gold Country.

My office is just to the left of the Red Church.

Mediation Types

When parties involved in a serious conflict want to avoid a court battle, there are types of mediation can be an effective alternative. In mediation, a trained mediator tries to help the parties find common ground using principles of collaborative, mutual-gains negotiation. We tend to think mediation processes are all alike, but in fact, mediators follow different approaches depending on the type of conflict they are dealing with. Before choosing a mediator, consider the various styles and types of mediation that are available to help resolve conflict.

The next posting will share the types of styles that Mediators use.

My suggestion is to find a Mediator who has subject matter expertise.

With Covid-19 restrictions, you may also find Mediators who feel comfortable with Virtual Mediation.
