Relationship Mediation is facilitation and guidance to help intimate partners get aligned or re-aligned.
Whether your relationship is brand new or seasoned, monogamous or polyamorous, the best investment you can make is in expert guidance to get clear on your mutual intentions, commitments, and vision.
Many people come to us facing challenges and conflict in their relationships. It's easy to judge that another person is the problem, and to become convinced that leaving the relationship will mean the problems go away. Most people find, however, that their next relationship is haunted by the same dynamics and patterns of conflict. Does this sound familiar?
There is no shame in getting help to create the enjoyable and supportive relationships you desire.
Discover and memorialize your vision, mission, intentions, commitments, and agreements in a customized Relationship Contract.
Not designed to be legally enforceable, a Relationship Contract is clearer than most wedding vows and deeper than a conventional prenuptial contract. It is a blueprint to cultivate the natural affinity between partners; a vision for each individual's personal growth; and a road map to navigate challenges together.
"We so appreciate your efforts and care in meeting with us and putting this agreement together. We are feeling a shift in our connection as a result of our time together and for this we are very thankful. Your views and perspective have encouraged a proactive and hopeful course for our relationship."

Relationship Mediation may occur as a practical complement or alternative to therapy or counseling. Unlike therapy, mediation is strictly solution-oriented and transforms dynamics quickly. The process is characterized by:
a clear, efficient process
a practical, problem-solving approach
focus on the present and future
focus on the strengths of your relationship
supportive coaching to interrupt unhelpful dynamics
Pave the way for fundamental shifts in communication and understanding between intimate partners.
