Mediation Services


Resolve conflict while maintaining dignity and building skills to manage problems in the future.


Being in conflict is difficult for all of us.

We want to be able to get along with others and have hopes of being able to get past differences to resolve issues or relationships for the good of ourselves and others.

Professional Mediation makes the most difficult situations easier:

Divorce Mediation

  • Custody
  • Visitation/parenting plans
  • Minimizing conflict between parents
  • Some financial and property issues
  • Written agreements can be used to file for dissolution in Domestic Relations Court

Custody and Visitation Mediation for separated unmarried parents

  • Written agreements can be used to file with Juvenile Court

Family Mediation

  • Parent-child conflicts
  • Various family arrangements
  • Step parenting issues
  • Juvenile offenders of domestic violence

Community Mediation

  • Neighbor disputes
  • Victim-offender issues
  • Juvenile crime-retribution issues

School Mediation

  • Truancy
  • Behavior contracts

Elder Mediation

  • Family conflict
  • Patient – caretaker conflict

Being in conflict can make us feel tight in a knot or stuck.

We can feel frustrated, angered, saddened, or helpless. Almost always, we do not like the way we feel about ourselves when we are in conflict with another person, especially when that conflict involves people we care about.

Anna Tyrrell & Associates understand interpersonal conflict.
