Step by Step Mediation Is about making sure everyone in the room has a voice.
Mediation is about having a discussion on topics that people need to come to agreements on while at the same time meet as many of the needs and interests of all the parties as possible.

When we are in the centre of a family storm, our logic and reasoning can go right out the window. When it comes to family, all of our civility can disappear and we may say hurtful, mean and vindictive things to one another. That does not leave room for open, honest, sincere communication.
As a Family Mediator, my role is to provide impartial, neutral support for all the parties involved. I faciliate your discussion and help the parties stay on track so they can work through each of the items they came to talk about and come to agreements with more focus and ease.
The area's that I can assist you are in;
•Divorce or Separation
•Step or Blended Family Chaos & Conflict
•Family Conferences for Seniors and their family
Whether you are in the middle of a family conflict and recognize that you need assistance, or you feel that your family could use some professional guideance to help an important family discussion stay focused, then give me a call or email and find out if Vancouver Mediation is right for you.
