Navigating through conflict is difficult. Rachel helps people to move through conflict and figure out the best way to move forward, through this difficult time, to the next phase of your lives. In mediation we work together, to find a path to resolution without minimizing the difficult feelings that a restructure of the family naturally brings up - fear, anger, sadness, loneliness and confusion.
