Are You Headed for Mediation?

If you are facing mediation as part of your separation and divorce process, it is important to be emotionally and organizationally prepared for these meetings.  

As a trained Mediation coach through the New Ways For Families® program at the High Conflict Institute, Heidi can support you to be effectively prepared and ensure clients have the tools to be able to keep emotions in check, prepare appropriate proposals, make reasonable decisions regarding their spouse’s proposals, and ultimately remain focused on reasonable outcomes and decisions that can last for you and for your family.

If you can’t even imagine finding the beginning of all this when everything feels like it’s ending, Heidi can help.  It has been said if you’re facing divorce, “you need to call Heidi, she has seen it all”!  

Working with Heidi in advance of your mediation will allow you to:

  • Be clear on the process. What is the role of the mediator, your legal counsel and how the process will work. 
  • Ensure your emotions and your triggers are in check, allowing you to use solutions and the right tools to manage emotions during the course of the meeting. 
  • Pull together appropriate advance questions regarding the meeting, so you are able to effectively prepare yourself for what to expect on the day.
  • Review the agenda for mediation with Heidi, and ensure that you have reviewed all options and are focusing on making fair and reasonable proposals so decisions made can last.
  • Have appropriate responses to proposals made by your spouse. You can have prepared statements ready so not to lose focus and let your emotions guide your response.

What Heidi’s clients say

“Heidi asked me all the right questions at all the right times. She listened to my needs and knew how to lead me to my own best answers with grace, wit and camaraderie. She helped me tease out really clear next steps during each and every session, which felt amazing because at the beginning of my sessions, I always showed up feeling so overwhelmed. Nothing about working with her felt forced. She’s an easy, thoughtful, brilliant person and I can’t recommend her enough.”

– Jennifer Ciplet, Lafayette, CO

“Heidi is an exceptionally smart, empathetic person. She has truly lived her life, taken risks and believes with all her heart that good change is possible. She is empowering, motivated and tenacious. A beam of light in challenging times”

– Happy Client

“I was so impressed by both Heidi’s listening and communication skills. After our session, Heidi’s summary of the key areas I need to focus on were spot-on. I know she will be able to guide me in the areas I really need help with as I move through my divorce.”


“I cannot thank you enough. This is a very hard process to go through and I really appreciate the ability to work through things with you before making any decisions. I’m glad you made the choice to do what you do as you have made an impossible time bearable. You give me hope.”​
