|I am primarily facilitative, but I will be evaluative and directive if the parties request me to be.|
|Through questions and the facts/evidence the parties present, I help the parties distill the issues down to the pivotal or critical issues. I provide my opinion on possible outcomes and their likelihood and identify areas where additional discovery is needed.|
|When I mediate, I enjoy the challenge of helping parties reach resolution, even when the parties are extremely polarized in their positions. I volunteer time to mediate and train for Santa Clara County Office of Human Relations. I am a mediation coach and past Secretary for Campus Consortium, an organization devoted to developing mediation progrmas for Bay Area and other colleges and universities.|
|Training: More than 140 hours of mediation training, including skills enhancement for two-party mediation and mulit-party mediation. I have chaired a Mediation Roundtable of professional mediators discussing variuos mediation techniques and chaired the Santa Clara County Bar Association ADR Committee. Please resquest my curriculum vitae for details.
Experience: I have completed more than 50 mediations, consisting of community, employment, and business matters. I also train mediators for Santa Clara County and Campus Consortium. I have made several presentations on mediation.
