Heidi's Perspective

  • I am the mother of two children, ages 11 and 6. I have lived in Duluth, MN, for almost 20 years but grew up on a farm in SE Wisconsin. I love being outdoors, growing flowers, and traveling near and far.

  • I strongly believe in the power of mediation and out-of-court conflict resolution as a tool for healing. Mediation is an opportunity for each person's voice to be heard, and to feel empowered to be part of the resolution.

  • My mediation style involves a restorative/facilitative approach. I will not tell you what you should do or how to resolve your issues, but I can guide you into coming up with the best solution based upon your values.

  • I am motivated by fostering peace among a child's caregivers, and protecting a child's sense of security and optimism.

Mediation Practice & Credentials

  • A Rule 114 Family Mediator trained with The Katallasso Group.

  • I am an attorney who has practiced family law in Duluth, MN since 2010.

  • I also have a lot of experience working with low-income individuals as a volunteer with Legal Aid and, in the past, as a public defender.

  • Faculty Instructor at Lake Superior College, Duluth, MN.

  • Bachelor of Arts in Geography and American Indian Studies from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

  • J.D. from Hamline University School of Law, with an emphasis on Dispute Resolution.
