Why Family Mediation

Sometimes life can seem out of hand, especial when your family relationships are suffering. Family mediation may be the answer to relieving your stress. This approach to resolving conflicts between families is overseen by a trained mediator who acts as a neutral participant in sessions. A mediator is able to facilitate discussion in an unbiased manner, allowing each participant to voice their side of the disagreement and come to a mutual agreement. Family mediation leads to verbal and written agreements, which can also be legally binding if desired.

Stuck in the Middle

While there are many reasons to seek family mediation, among the most common are divorced parents looking to coexist and make the transition on their children easier. Children can become caught in the middle of their parents’ battles, adding to their stress and confusion. Through family mediation, parents can address key issues and concerns between one another and their children while in session.

Benefits of a Mental Health Counselor Mediator versus an Attorney Mediator – Counselors assess the needs of the family when it comes to developing a Shared Parenting Plan and when the kids stay with each parent.  Sometimes when there are kids with special needs like ADHD, Aspergers, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, or other needs they do not transition well with the back and forth of some parenting plans.  So a mental health counselor and mediator can help sort through these issues.
