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.

I am a social educator, mediator and disciple of restorative practices. I worked for five years in an alternative high school and for a further four years in a child-welfare center as a school social worker, managing and delivering activities on a wide range of topics including team-building, anti-bullying, promoting cooperation, assertive communication and problem-solving, as well as working on conflict resolution and various community projects. I also provided training to teachers and consultancy for parents and teachers. I was voted leader of the employees’ committee, in a mediator-advocacy capacity.
Besides, I was involved in various projects in prisons and community centers.
I’ve arrived at mediation through my professional development. I specialized in the field of experiential education, focusing on group dynamics and developing social skills through interactions, by creating an environment around my clients in which I facilitate the process and let the participants make their choices. This essentially has the same approach as mediation. The underlying value of self-determination is of fundamental importance to me. My mission is to empower individuals, partnerships, organizations and communities to be able to make their own decisions with respect to each stakeholder.
I am open to all kinds of mediation with community, workplace, school, family and intercultural cases as my specialty.
