Swisher Mediation & Counseling Services

Experts agree that litigation can be destructive to the well-being of individuals and families. With both a law degree and a Ph.D. in counseling.
Dr. Swisher offers unique services in "Solution Focused Mediation" and "Family Systems Counseling" designed to expedite and enrich the resolution of issues related to separation and divorce.

Separation and Divorce are Hard

The reality is that divorce is expensive in money and time, not to mention the emotional drain. For that reason most parties consider alternatives like mediation instead of fighting issues out in the courtroom.

Legal Arbitration is also an option, when reasonable minds can’t agree. Your savings in stress, time, and money can be substantial.

We Know that Conflict Creates Stress

There’s more than one way to resolve family conflict and business disputes. While some civil and commercial disputes require litigation, many conflicts are resolved without ever entering a courtroom, through mediation and arbitration. Even when both parties attempt to work together, it can be hard to come to agreement. Mediation offers an effective and caring way to facilitate a peaceful resolution of your issues. The process empowers participants and is considerably less stressful than the drawn out, highly conflict strategies associated with litigation.
