Additional Information: I am a former New York litigator, who became a committed Collaborative attorney and mediator; having moved to California, I am continuing to practice as a mediator. I have been a mediator since 2001. I have extensive training and experience in both the Transformative approach and the Understanding Based method. While mediating in New York, I was Accredited as a Divorce Mediator by the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation. My goal is to resolve conflict by moving beyond the "zero sum game" to finding solutions that serve as many needs and interests of each party as possible. I do this by striving to understand each party's underlying needs, interests, and motivations. and to help each party understand those of the other person. In this way, we can find ways to enlarge the pie and allow each person to gain as much of what is important to him/her as possible. For more information see my website at
