Understanding Your Needs Is First

Sometimes two people just can’t work out the tricky areas of separating their lives on their own.  The topics are too personal and emotions too deep. You may need a little help to tease apart your attachments and your history. Heart mediation keeps your heart in mind as we work through any opposing perspectives. There are reasons each of you want the things you do. We will go beneath the emotions to find those reasons and where they intersect. Once you understand each other’s needs it’s much easier to come up with a solution that works for both of you.

We will work toward your agreements and you can then take those agreed points to an attorney for review and drafting into your agreement.

I Am Not Your Usual Mediator

Yes, I will help you come to agreements like every other mediator, but my approach is a little different.  My background as a Relationship Systems Coach provides the possibility for unusually creative results.  I call my process Heart Mediation. Heart Mediation helps you communicate why you want what you want in a way that your partner will understand and want to meet your need, and you will want to meet your partner’s need.

  • Does your home hold a lot of sentimental value for both of you and you’re not sure which of you should get it, or if you should sell it?
  • Do you have certain prize possessions like art or jewelry that seem impossible to divide?
  • Do you need an agreed plan to tell your children, family, friends?
  • Want to discuss your children’s healthcare, friends, activities, driving age, or things like tattoos and piercings?
  • Need to discuss how to divide or spend important family holidays after your divorce ?

Heart Mediation:

  • Allows the time and space you need to explore the far reaching implications of your decisions.
  • Gives place and grace to discover and express why you want what you want.
  • Honors all viewpoints, which allows a solution to arise naturally and organically, becoming obvious to all.
  • Uses a needs-based approach. We are not as concerned about dividing things 50/50 as we are meeting everyone’s needs going forward. This can take many forms.
  • Allows ample time to brainstorm and weigh many options. Not every option arises quickly. Not every option is viable.
  • Encourages you to take the time you need for your insides to rearrange just like your outer world needs time to make adjustments.
