Family Facilitated Conversations

A safe space to discuss challenging family topics.

Schedule a Family Facilitated Conversation

Let’s face it. Sometimes having difficult conversations with family members can be tough.

These are the perfect types of situations for a facilitated family conversation:

  • Challenging inter-family disputes
  • Difficult decisions about whether to stay married or to separate
  • Blended families
  • A loved one with substance abuse concerns
  • Tough decisions about an aging parent’s care
  • Questions about whether or when an aging parent should downsize a home
  • What to do when a sibling suffers from addiction and you’re worried about what happens to the sibling’s inheritance when your parents pass away
  • When you’re worried about hurt feelings as a result of an estate structure

These and other difficult conversations can be very emotional and strain even the closest family bonds. Our experienced facilitator will manage the flow of conversation so emotions can be expressed productively. You will each get a chance to share thoughts without interruption. We help your family find solutions even when it is hard.

Dolphins Instead of Sharks

We get it that legal disputes often invoke fear and worry.  Because conflict can be emotionally charged and tough to address, we coach you on how to navigate the constantly changing currents of the law. Applying our Dolphin Lawyering philosophy, we take a holistic approach to mediation and analogize the lawyer to a dolphin instead of the more popular stereotype of a shark.
