I restrict my practice to ADR. I have more than twenty years’ experience in applying and teaching alternate dispute resolution including mediation in many fields including family business, partnership break-ups, aboriginal issues, tax policy, construction, pensions, shareholder disputes, estates, sexual orientation, and many others. I have almost 20 years’ experience working with families trying to avoid using the court system to work through their parenting and property division disputes on separation and divorce. I practice child-centered mediation which means decisions must work from the children’s perspective. I am experienced in dealing with high levels of emotion and in working with clients where there are abuse issues. If clients need it I also work with people to help them decide whether to separate and if so whether to divorce. I am a Chartered Mediator, Chartered Arbitrator, Certified Family Arbitrator, Parenting Coordinator and a member of several mediation professional organizations.
