Georgia Daniels, J.D., Mediator in Pasadena
Pasadena Marital Mediator
Marital Mediation provides a safe environment in which to mediate a specific issue that is troubling your marriage, with the intent to strengthen the marriage. Think of it as mediating with the goal of staying married.
Marital mediation is forward-looking and avoids assigning blame for past events. The process involves active problem-solving for the specific issue that is causing distress. Even infidelity can be addressed and placed in a reframed context. You may learn new communication skills and practice them to navigate through the current rough waters.
Marital mediation is not couples therapy. The processes and goals are quite different. You may find value in both mediation and therapy, and you are encouraged to try every process that might support continuation of your marriage.
