Divorce is a very difficult decision to make. My unique experience as a Therapist, School Counselor, my education along with my experience as a Divorce and Custody Mediator will provide you the expertise to help you make decisions that can reduce the negative effects on you and your children. I am confident that with guidance, education and support through this legal process, families can find happiness.

Divorce mediation is a family-centered conflict resolution process in which an impartial third party assists the participants in negotiating a consensual and informed settlement. In family mediation the decision-making authority rests with the parties. The role of the mediator includes reducing the obstacles to communication, maximizing the exploration of alternatives, and addressing the needs of those it is agreed are involved or affected. Mediation is based on principles of problem solving that focus on the needs of the participants, fairness, privacy, self- determination, and the best interests of all family members.

Goal of Mediation

My goal in mediation is to allow clients to keep the process of divorce confidential, affordable, collaborative, and respectful so that you and your children can move forward with as little damage as possible.


Divorce is considered a lawsuit. However, in mediation you will avoid the public court system and all of the information disclosed remains confidential. You will avoid the expense of hiring individual lawyers to litigate in court. It is recommended you have an independent attorney review your settlement and/or advise you individually at anytime during the process. A mediator does not act as your attorney. Rather, I will guide you through the process and help you reach an agreement that is satisfactory to each party. I will assist in preparing and filing all necessary divorce documents with the court.

Confused and Unsure?

You may need a Divorce Coach and Stephanie can help. When you work with a coach, one of the first steps is to look at the immense confusion that you will inevitably feel in a few ways: the shock and stress of  thinking about divorce, the experience of being in the divorce process and the mix of emotions you face after you’ve signed the divorce papers -- when you are starting over.

For all, divorce coaching must address this sense of being overwhelmed, which conceals some of our greatest fears … how will we possibly manage financially, and what will happen to our children? How you break the news to your children (who know more than you suspect), and how you navigate the split (with your spouse becoming your co parent) directly impacts your kids -- near and long term. Let me help you through this process.
