Mediation for Family Issues

Disagreements can become most heated when they involve those we love the most. Mediation provides a safe place where all parties can speak, be heard, and work together to find a solution that everyone can live with. A skilled Mediator can help keep the discussion moving in a positive direction and focused on the future, to help your family reach a resolution or decision together.

Family difficulties that may be appropriate for mediation include:

  • Conversations about life style choices
  • Unplanned/teenage pregnancy
  • Parents needing their adult children to "leave the nest"
    or become more independent
  • Estrangements
  • Difficult apologies
  • Probate issues
  • Grandparenting issues
  • Pre-marital decisions
  • Adoption
  • Blending families
A skilled Mediator can help keep the discussion moving in a positive direction and focused on the future, to help your family reach a resolution or decision together.

"Family quarrels have a total bitterness unmatched by others. Yet it sometimes happens that they also have a kind of tang, a pleasantness beneath the unpleasantness, based on the tacit understanding that this is not for keeps; that any limb you climb out on will still be there later for you to climb back."
