Mediation and Conflict Resolution

Are you thinking about taking your concerns to court? Before you relinquish your time and money to the courts and attorneys, give consideration to a mediation session. Mediation is neutral third-party facilitated  conversation with the sole purpose to reach an agreement when a conflict occurs. When emotions run high, communication can become dysfunctional and stressful. Mediation is a "party-centered" process in that it is focused primarily upon the needs, rights, and interests of the parties. The mediator uses a wide variety of techniques to guide the process in a constructive direction and to help the parties find their optimal solution. Mediators are facilitative in that they manage the interaction between parties and facilitate open communication.

​ Some of the relationships we can mediate include:

  • Adult Family
  • ​Bankruptcy
  • ​Boundary Disputes
  • ​Business
  • Community

Divorce mediation

​As an advanced trained mediator, The Being Place can help you and your spouse work out an agreement that will be in the best interest of all family members, especially children. The average cost of a divorce using conventional legal methods can run anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000, depending on the adversarial nature of your respective attorneys.  Then, when you're finished, a stranger has made the final decisions on the dispensation of property as well as the trajectory of your relationships with your children. And to top it off, your private affairs become a matter of public court record.
