About pacificpolicies

Mediation is the most satisfying work I've ever done. Helping people to find mutually acceptable resolutions to problems, even in longstanding and complex disputes, is an honour that I highly value and a responsibility that I take very seriously. I have a sliding scale fee schedule to ensure low income people and not-for profit organisations can access alternative dispute resolution and avoid costly court actions. I'm a member of the Canadian Bar Association, the ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC), the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute (BCAMI) and registered on the Mediate BC Civil Mediators Roster: http://www.mediatebc.com/Find-a-Mediator/Mediator-Profile.aspx?RosterTypeId=1&MediatorId=402
