The best solutions to a conflict are those found by the parties themselves. We help people work through differences in a mediated setting. We investigate and interview to help increase understanding. Function as agents of reality when needed while maintaining neutrality.
We manage a fair and compassionate process, empowering those in conflict to own the outcome and avoid arbitration if possible.
Syzygy Mediation Services will provide clear, timely written decisions on request to assist the parties going forward.
We offer either a single mediator or a mediation team, depending on the nature & complexity of the issue(s) you need addressed.
