Mediator Laura

Hello, nice to meet you. I am a mediator with a passion for developing agreements with families and small businesses that allow you to move out of conflict and forward with life. 

I use my background in law and early childhood education to help you focus on what is important - which relationships you want to foster, which ones you should keep at a distance, and which ones you need to sever. 

Clients have called me "a ray of sunshine" and said that they now see "light and hope" after talking with me. I value shining light into obscure or scary situations, I am happy to walk with you through conflict. 

During conflicts, clients often pause and comment that they haven't had such a productive and calm conversation with the other parties in years, if ever.

Crafting a Care-Full Plan: Where Love, Values, and Individuality Flourish

Let me help you focus on what is important in your parenting plan - creating stability and predictability for you and your children. This will allow you to move past the loss of your relationship with your child's other parent and into a new relationship as respectful co-parents. I will use assessments, worksheets and visioning tools to help you focus on what is most important - your children.

Early Childhood Education

While raising my family, I took a break from meditation to become an Infant-Toddler Teacher. In addition to my required education in Early Childhood Education, I was accepted into California's yearlong fellowship for the Program for Infant-Toddler Care. I use the information I learned here to help us focus on the children in the conflict. 

Pet Custody Mediator

Who keeps the dog after a separation? Well, it is kind of up to the dog. In this course, I learned from Karis Nafte about dog behavior and what cues to look for when making decisions about who keeps the dog. 

In addition to this course, I have mediated claims involving pets in Small Claims Court. I have come to rely on my restorative justice training to find meaningful resolutions when our furry family members become the center of a dispute.

Dependency Court Mediation

I mediate parenting plans for the Los Angeles Courts. To work for SCFM, I completed an advanced meditation course in family meditation. 

I highly value the input I receive from these experienced mediators as well as family and dependency court judges and attorneys. This lets me and YOU know that my work is high quality and legally enforceable.
