Angela focuses on the processes as much as the outcomes of family mediation. A focal point for Angela working with clients is their mental health and well-being during the process of conflict resolution as well as with clients' families, friends and workplace as separation, divorce, and mediation itself can be stressful experiences. She facilitates the mediation process in a hopeful, neutral and respectful manner. Angela continually observes how mediation can be a very helpful and productive avenue for clients experiencing various levels of conflict.
Angela is pursuing a doctoral program (Ph.D. candidate) in Public Health specializing in Social & Behavioural Health Sciences at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. She is exploring the experiences of family mediation among parents and mediators, their vulnerability to conflict and how this may impact personal, social and environmental factors.
