"When my husband and I decided to separate after more than 30 years, we decided to go the Collaborative route. It was new to us, but we knew it was the approach we wanted to preserve all the positive things we had built together. We realized quickly that to deal with assets, property, support and on and on…(or so it felt!), we needed an accountant trained in the collaborative process who understood both the financial picture and the personal goals we had set. Karin gave us the most wonderful attention and support through the whole process. Her tireless attention to the smallest detail, made me feel secure and protected. Going through this process was stressful, sad, overwhelming, but every time I spoke with Karin, I felt calm and clear. Somehow Karin made both “sides” feel listened to and supported. Of course, she is amazing at the number crunching, but what sets her apart is her kind, gentle and patient empathy. We always knew we could reach out and ask a question or have something explained (again) and be taken through it all step by step. I felt safer knowing Karin was part of the process that was determining how my future was going to look. That is a huge responsibility, and Karin just shines in this incredibly delicate role. It is not an exaggeration to say that Karin felt like a lifeline to me."
"Rosanna was the sixth mediator I’d interviewed and I knew immediately that she was the one. She could ground a lighting bolt with her calm demeanour, creating a safe tenor for the most delicate of conversations. Her educational background in psychology and law result in a beautiful blend of to-the-point professionalism and sublime interpersonal skills, each critical for credibility and momentum. In a process which can nowadays evade all sense of humanity, Rosanna acknowledges that unique individuals are altering their unique story. The experience was unprecedented, because our two lives have never been divided before, and she treated our untethering as such. Our children had names around her table. She was able to intuit the best way to navigate our dynamic and structured communication channels accordingly. We have emerged into our new and separate realities on good terms, allowing us to nurture our newborn lives rather than lick the wounds carved by emotional & financial wreckage, that can be far too common along this treacherous rite of passage. Goodwill between co-parents is priceless. Rosanna was able to look after the best interests of the whole family rather than advocating for one individual over the interests of the other. We are all grateful to have worked with such a skillful, elegant human, a relationship mastermind with down to earth candour. This legal/emotional matrix is a chess game that Rosanna has right under control. I can’t speak highly enough to Rosanna’s integrity, competency and overwhelming value during one of the most stressful periods of our lives."
