What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process for people involved in a dispute, or who need to have a difficult conversation. Trained mediators guide participants through an informal process that helps those involved to identify the issues and generate their own resolutions. Mediators are non-judgmental, do not take sides or tell you what to do.


Types of disputes typically mediated:

  • Neighbor/Neighbor (pets, fences, home and property additions, parking, noise, etc.)
  • Spouse/Spouse (relationships, child custody, visitation, parenting issues, communication)
  • Parent/Teen conflicts (curfew, driving, housekeeping, school, attendance,/performance, friends)
  • Parent/ Other family conflicts such as siblings or in-laws (property, adult siblings, elder care)
  • Roommates or Friends (interpersonal relationships, rent, housekeeping, communication)
  • Landlord/Tenant
  • Employer/Employee or Co-workers
  • Business/Customer
  • Neighborhood Associations disputes
