Dear Prospective Client:
Thank for taking the time to visit ACCORD to see how mediation services can help you..
Since 2001, ACCORD Mediation Services has been providing an array of dispute resolution services and support to couples, families, businesses, organizations, and employees, managers, business partners and human resource managers.
Conflict can be rather stressful. When facing a major life change, or worrying about an unknown future, anxiety, anger and depression can take over, resulting in an escalation of emotions.
That is why our staff is committed to assisting you expeditiously and in a sincere and caring manner. You may expect us to listen to your concerns, help you acquire the information you need to make well-informed decisions, help you see your options, and assist you in discovering a solution that meets your needs or objectives. When people are armed with facts, possess a yearning to understand, are surrounded with loving and encouraging support, and have a sincere desire to put issues to rest, the healing process begins, and a deeper understanding of oneself becomes realized.
Since becoming a mediator 20 years ago, I have been a member of the following organizations:
• Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) (Former Advanced Practitioner Member 2002)
• New York State Dispute Resolution Association (NYSDRA (2005-2010 Former Board Member)
• NYS Council on Divorce Mediation (Current Member NYSCDM since 2002)
• NYS Office of Court Administration Certified Mediator
• Rochester Association of Family Mediators (FAFM) - (Former Member and Treasurer 2002)
• Former Member of National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) (2015-2016)
ACCORD is committed to assisting with as many of your needs as we can. We have interpreters for the hearing impaired. We use technology to facilitate long-distance mediation, such as SKYPE, video conferencing and GOOGLE Hangouts.
As an ACCORD client, you will also have access to a network of professional resources at your disposal to assist you during our work together. The network includes a list of professionals that former clients have referred to ACCORD, such as attorneys, accountants, tax professionals, counselors, therapists, life coaches, bankers and financial planners.
The process begins by contacting ACCORD to schedule a time for both you and your spouse to come together for a 30-minute consultation to learn more about the process, costs, timelines, mutual expectations and how mediation can work in harmony with the legal system. The objective is to determine whether mediation is for you. There is no cost and no obligation for this consultation.
