conflict management for the modern world
Mediation for Groups
Are you having conflict with a partner, roommate, neighbor, co-worker or friend?
Don't want to deal with the time, expense, and hassle of court?
Mediation is a great opportunity to bring in a neutral third-party to provide a safe and structured space for facilitating conversation and working collaboratively towards a solution. This is all to say: I'm here to help you communicate better and empower you to come up with solutions that work for you. Mediation is less costly emotionally and financially than going to court, and the parties have a say in making agreements that are tailored to their needs.
Mediation is a voluntary process; we cannot force people to participate. If one party wants to mediate and the other does not, then conflict coaching may be a viable opportunity for the willing party to work on addressing their conflict (see the "individuals" tab under "Services" above).
Dr. Reinke is a registered mediator with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution, and has been trained by San Francisco Community Boards and Kennesaw State University's Center for Conflict Management. She has mediated many different types of cases, including business conflicts where both parties had legal representation during the mediation, and master/sub-tenant and roommate conflicts where no parties had legal counsel.

Frequently asked questions:
Do we have to meet in person? Yes. A suitable time that meets all the parties needs will be determined.
Is it legally binding? Sort of... It's up to the parties to decide if they want to sign an agreement; signing an agreement may affect your rights and your case. It is completely voluntary to construct and sign an agreement.
How much does it cost? Dr. Reinke charges $150 per hour for a two-party dispute. The minimum cost to the parties will be $150 regardless of whether the whole hour is used or not.
