Description of Practice

My practice uses a proactive style of Mediation. Whether mediating a dispute Face-to-Face or in Shuttle Style, I like to discuss the goals and interests of each party to make a joint narrative that explains the dispute at hand. This important first step helps both parties feel heard and that the power between them is relatively well-balanced, to where the parties can negotiate with mutual respect. By keeping the stress and anxiety low, I am able to assist both parties in navigating a difficult situation in a respectful and informed manner. This enables me to help them think outside of the box in order to find the most effective solution, for the best overall outcome for all involved.

Professional Background

I have a very wide range of experience in mediation, including 29 years of senior level litigation paralegal experience in 3 of Portland, Oregon's elite and well known law firms.


I have over 30 years experience in mediation and arbitration focusing on civil litigation matters such as contract disputes, business-to-business disputes, construction and real estate disputes, neighborhood disputes and employment disputes.


I have BS in Psychology and Sociology with a Minor in History from Portland State University, as well as graduate level classes in Conflict Resolution.


My approach to dispute resolution is simple. I assure each party safe and comfortable surroundings. I listen to each party separately to understand the nature of the dispute at hand, as well as what type of resolution they are hoping for. This enables each party to feel that they can openly and communicate with me knowing that I am there to help them find resolution. I do not judge or take sides and I cannot make any decisions for them.


My hourly rate is $200 for up to 3 parties. Above 3 parties, my hourly rate is $300.
