What is Mediation?
Mediation is a process for resolving conflicts that brings in a neutral person—ideally someone with proper training and experience as a Mediator—to come alongside you and the person you’re in conflict with to help resolve your dispute. He or she will facilitate your conversations and try to bring everyone to some kind of agreement.
What are the benefits?
There are plenty of good reasons to mediate.

Why Choose Mediation?
Often when we experience conflicts in our lives, we tend to assign roles to the people involved. We see ourselves as the “hero” and we see them, whoever they are, as the “villain.”
But in most cases, the villain isn’t a character whose intent is to make our lives difficult. This person is somebody who sees themselves as the hero of the story and you as the villain. It makes perfect sense that each person is deeply invested in their situation and of course, you believe that you are right.
This is why it helps to bring in an impartial mediator to help each of you find a solution that works and feels like a true happy ending. Unlike most fairy tales, both the “hero” and the “villain” of the story get to experience a happy ending.
