While my divorce was an amicable one, there were still some hard decisions to make and difficult conversations. Betsy helped us navigate all of our decisions with patience and grace, and diffused the few unpleasant moments we had by bringing us back to our common goals - a reminder to both of us of what we were trying to accomplish, especially our longer-term objectives. Betsy stayed calm and professional in all instances and had a wonderful way of guiding the conversation without leading it. She helped set each meeting's agenda, always encouraging each of us to add or change the agenda to meet our personal needs. She also moved us through the process at a pace that was comfortable for the two of us - not an easy feat since my ex and I process information and decisions at very different speeds!
We were, however, surprised at the cost of the mediation sessions and overall amount of charges, but I believe Betsy's fees are reasonable and competitive with her peers. This is not a quick process and can be complicated with the amount of paperwork and support documents needed to divorce, and Betsy did encourage us to do some of the admin work on our own to help keep costs down, which was appreciated.
She was a thought partner steering us through a painful process but helped us keep our friendship in tact. She wore many hats for us in this process and did it with style, poise and kindness. I recommend her services without hesitation.
