Helping you get on with your life


Collaborative dispute resolution processes allow you to reach outcomes that you agree to, that are workable, and that are private.  Some people think that divorce is an expensive, ugly, drawn-out battle where nobody wins.  I help people reach a satisfying conclusion using Mediation.

In Mediation you are treated with respect.  You control how soon you resolve your dispute and get on with your life.  I facilitate and work with you to maintain important relationships.  I have over 33 years of dispute resolution experience.

Deb has offices in Vancouver and on the North Shore.
