With 12 years of experience mediating family and other disputes in Texas and in France, I am a  professional dedicated to helping people find pathways to peaceful resolution of immediate conflict situations as well as the underlying patterns which result in recurring conflict, if they so choose.

I am now based in France (Chateaudouble, Var).  I mediate via long distance communication tools, or travel to other sites for international mediations as required.

Scheduling and fees:

Schedule and fee structure is flexible to accommodate specific situations and needs.  Two options generally are available:

  • we agree together an amount to be shared (at their discretion) among the parties for each mediation session
  • Each party decides at the close of the mediation session how much he or she will contribute based on their own economic situation and the value the session has brought them


Soy flexible con respecto a las tarifas, Generalmente hay dos opciones:

  • Accordamos juntos un cantidad que los participantes comartirân, a su discreción, para cada sesión.
  • Cada participante decide al final de cada sesión cuánto contribuir en función de su propia situación económica y el valor que el sesión de mediación les ha proporcionado.




Mediation and coaching sessions are generally 1 to 2 hours.  In coaching there is an initial session to identify goals, a set number of follow up sessions, ongoing evaluations and a final evaluation session after a pre-agreed period of time.
