Meet Our Mediators


Maggie spent most of her career litigating contested child custody cases. Her focus is on resolution for today and tomorrow - creating a plan that will give you a way forward without fighting.


Amber recognized the need for pet mediation after going through a contested divorce with her 3 dogs. She realized how valuable mediation was when deciding issues around her son and wanted to apply her skills to help others.


Josh does community and custody mediation but his true passion is with animals. He wants to make sure your pet has their needs met. Josh also loves nature photography.

We have an experienced, qualified team 
to help you transition to your new life.

Why Choose Us

Why Mediation?

Logically decide what is the best for your pet(s) and make decisions that protect their emotional and physical health.

Use a third party to help direct conversation and create a positive atmosphere where you can resolve differences.

Trained mediators can help brainstorm solutions which meet both parties' needs.

Have a workable agreement so that you don't have to re-negotiate every thing that happens in life.

Get your issues resolved without litigation or lengthy negotiation between attorneys.  

Give yourself certainty for how life is going to be moving forward, knowing what kind of relationship you will have with your pet(s).


We want to help you move forward
