Mediation

What is mediation?

A confidential problem-solving process in which a trained neutral (mediator) assists the parties in communicating what is important in the dispute; creating and negotiating options; and crafting agreements that are fair, realistic and durable.

FEES

We use a sliding scale to determine fees for mediation.

The fees range from $60.00 – $450.00 for a session. For those with financial hardships, we either reduce the fee or waive it entirely.

Facilitation Services

Facilitation is a process whereby a trained, neutral facilitator assists a group with designing and conducting a meeting (or series of meetings) to realize the desired objectives of the group. Appropriate agenda development, effective meeting process and designated outcomes are the result. It is a fair, respectful, timely and cost effective approach.
