As a practitioner, Sarah knows how to solve problems creatively and respectfully. She can help you determine whether interdisciplinary mediation, collaboration or litigation is the right model for you. She understands how interdisciplinary mediation and the collaborative model can minimize your expenses and allow you to resolve your dispute in a more respectful, relaxed and conscious manner than traditional litigation.
Interdisciplinary mediation helps you become more aware of the issues that are important to you, avoid inflicting and suffering unnecessary pain, search for the win-win solution, and nurture your creativity. The safe environment created by this model transforms fear into positive action, inspiring solutions that are tailored to your needs and the needs of your family. While court is always a possibility when resolving a legal dispute, Sarah believes that in most situations interdisciplinary mediation or collaboration will conserve emotional and financial resources, leading to better solutions and a healthier, happier post-divorce life for all family members.
