As a professional mediator my goal is always to help people in a dispute find their own best possible solutions. A facilitator and reflector, a way finder and possibilitarian. I help clients in crises, conflicts and transitions to figure out their best interests for the immediate and the long term. “Conflict is an event, not a lifestyle.”
I respect every person and their situation as unique and work with clients’ circumstances as they are. For me, qualities are more important than qualifications - though I have plenty of those.
A fully insured, MII qualified mediator with Trauma Awareness & Resistance training, and advanced specialist in Comprehensive, All-Issues Family and Separating Couples, I currently work with the Irish Legal Aid Board’s Family Mediation Services in Dublin. I hold a diploma from U.C.D in Mediation and Conflict and Dispute Resolution. During 2020/21 I was a Covid Mediator for Community Law and Mediation and regularly mediate remotely online. Experienced in translator assisted, intercultural mediations, and drafting agreements for both non legal and legal Court Ruled Settlements.
Whatever the issue, whether conflict circumstances, or strategic constructive meetings, I can assist you successfully communicate and negotiate towards collaborative options, solutions and outcomes.
As a middle child of a large family I was never a stranger to multi party stakeholders all trying to have their needs met! I was always the peacemaker and the person people came to for a non judgmental, listening ear. A yogi, a former journalist/broadcaster and a successful founder of an independent business. I know, first hand, how a problem shared is a problem halved and the principle of discourse “hear both sides” is sacred to me.
I’m a strategist, doer and project manager, a communicator, active listener and open minded questioner. Neutral but not passive. Disputes feel difficult. It can be hard to be clear-eyed when we’re in distress and to hold a calm and creative conversation with parties you are in disagreement with.
Mostly, people need someone to listen, another pair of eyes and ears, neutral ones, that have no skin the game. As a mediator I can hear what the parties often can’t, and ask questions they often won’t, to enable them to make better choices for the best outcomes.
For me it is a privilege to listen to and help people. I’m interested in all areas of mediation and dispute resolution. Mediation is an alternative, proactive and holistic way to resolve disputes that saves everyone time, money and heartache and I look forward to helping you.

Field of Mediation: International
In 2019 I attended a two-week program on ADR in Berlin, deemed to satisfy the basic mediation training requirements for court appointment as a mediator pursuant to many American states' statutory and court rule standards. Since 2020 I collaborate with ADRpoint one of the largest private mediation centers in Europe registered in the ODR platform of the European Commission. Since 2020 I am a volunteer for International Academy of Dispute Resolution. In 2021 while being a Trainee Lawyer, I qualified as mediator under current italian legislation. Thanks to all the above I gained experience with different types of mediation: ODR and consumers’ rights, family mediation when minors are involved, intercultural mediation and migrants’ rights, international transactions and commercial disputes.
Italian mediator, I enjoy using Italian, English and German to communicate with people from every walk of life. I have always fostered values of integrity, diversity, professionalism and worked to spread them around, while also raising awareness on the importance of people’s emotions.
I strive to create a community based on all the above-mentioned values and, as Mediation and the environment where I grew up have taught me, where the people are more empathetic towards one another.
I can help clients facing difficulties in communication; that need to overcome language barriers with other parties such as commercial partners, relatives, or the administrative system; in tense situation where legal breaches happened; when they seek rationality and calm.
