Consider Family Mediators, LLC in Rutland Vermont

Why mediation? Mediation gives you a safe, respectful opportunity to voice your concerns using professional mediators to help you discover solutions and feel good about the process.

How do mediators do this? Mediators know how to listen and identify each person’s needs. They do this without judging or taking sides. Only after your point of view has been heard and your needs expressed will there be opportunity for both of you to resolve the issue. Family Mediators uses a unique approach; we pair a male and female mediator together to work with you.

Is mediation just a form of therapy? No. Mediators do not concern themselves with your personal history or your upbringing. Mediators focus on finding practical solutions to each issue as quickly as possible.

How much does mediation cost? Our fees are flexible, depending on your income and circumstances.
