One Mediator is dedicated to efficiently and effectively resolving disputes, allowing all parties involved to communicate constructively and collaboratively, thus preventing the draining of resources and damaged relationships which unresolved conflict can cause. Each party is treated with respect, confidentiality and courtesy in a peaceful and supportive environment. A variety of mediation techniques are employed to identify issues, clarify sources of conflict and find innovative solutions to problems. Anyone who engages in mediation is making a wise investment of time and energy to reach a resolution, rather than merely perpetuating conflict. Mediation provides new information, change of perspective, better understanding and an opportunity for dialogue that would be lost without engaging in the process.
