Welcome! You may have arrived at my website because a judge or lawyer or minister has referred you to me, perhaps you were directed to me by your search engine. I’m glad you’re here. I want to help you resolve the conflict you are experiencing and help you construct a lasting peace. I have worked with individuals and cities and universities. I have facilitated conflict arising from divorce to employment to healthcare. I have helped companies avoid rupture and have helped churches heal. Please let me know how I can help you.
I am a pioneer in designing, developing, and implementing holistic dispute resolution processes. As a plaintiff’s litigator for twenty years, I saw first-hand how litigation –and litigators – failed both parties. I began to explore alternatives to litigation. That exploration led me to Harvard Divinity School where I wrote my graduate thesis on the role of apology and forgiveness in mediation. Today I use my expertise as a litigator, mediator, and forgiveness expert to facilitate disputes where the parties hope to both settle the dispute and find forgiveness.
