Ryan's Perspective

  • As a mediator, I draw from both my prior experience as a family law attorney and multi-disciplinary training in well-being and inner and outer conflict resolution. 

    • ​For example, I may ask whether participants are comfortable with: intention setting, deep breathing, relaxing music, causal attire, alternative locations. This can range from nontraditional seating arrangements in a conference rooms to a quaint coffee shop, or from participants’ living room to selected outdoor venues for eco-mediation.  

  • To build an atmosphere of comfort, trust, authenticity, and vulnerability, I usually wear jeans, Birkenstocks, and Carhartt hoodies.

  • Before life as a lawyer, my work experience includes: baker, food truck line cook, barista, archivist, customer service at a steel fabrication facility, college English instructor, Thai massage therapist, and  dread loctician. Yes, life is unpredictable, but also beautiful!
