Neutral Third Party – Calming Presence – Strategic Plan – Creative Solutions – Cost Effective
As owner of PRM Mediation, Mary is Changing Conflict Into Opportunity™ with her step-by-step strategic mediation model that empowers decision makers and focuses on resolution. She brings smart financial decisions to your divorce while maximizing your net worth, putting your children first with family-centric co-parenting plans, reducing time and stress and transitioning effectively to a new life, all in a dignified way.
Mary has taken her considerable corporate experience in mediating and negotiating multi-million dollar contracts and her deep financial expertise to family mediation. Her certification in managing change, skills in conflict resolution and understanding human relationships for the last 20 years together with her hands-on care and empathy are used to help guide couples to achieve their best outcome – preserving their assets and most importantly healthy relationships with their children.
She goes beyond the math and spreadsheets. As a trusted, neutral adviser she give clients confidence in their future and comfort and reassurance in their decisions.
Mary gets the conversation started, acknowledges the past, but ensures that parties do not remain stuck in the past. Instead they can move forward toward resolution and closure.
Although she has uniquely differentiated herself to help higher net worth couples with complex assets and those with family businesses, every client is guided to consider cash flow, tax implications, and debt options when making financial asset division and support decisions.
Mary gets that mediation may not be a good fit or that both parties are unwilling to participate in mediation. So to meet the needs of an individual she provides divorce planning, divorce coaching, divorce financial consulting and preparation of financial statements and disclosure.
She serves clients from two locations: Mississauga and London.
