It is really easy to get overwhelmed these days. It’s important to give yourself permission to take a time out and step away from an angry situation until you calm down. If you need our help mediating, we’re here for you.

Why did I become a mediator? I explain my reasons to the founder of ElPostel Coaching LLC in this short video.

It seems like ghosting has reached epidemic proportions in both friendships and intimate relationships. What are some of the reasons you think it happens?

I'm very interested in hearing about your experience with this type of pain. If you want to have a confidential chat about it, I'd be very appreciative! It will help me understand how to guide my clients to peace.

Atlantic Mediation's Erin Fisher joined Muoki Musau, Realtor this morning to help debunk urban legends about the distribution of assets when going through a separation/divorce, particularly when it comes to real property in Virginia.

Wedding Crashers - "Let's Move On"

Despite the many ways that Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) and John (Owen Wilson) are hilariously wrong in their divorce mediation practice, they do get one thing right: sometimes you just have to make the choice to move on.

Ways to watch Wedding Crashers:

Time = $$$ and we want to make sure each mediation is handled as efficiently as possible to reduce our clients' costs. We take time to study the factors in each case and review any notes we've taken in a previous session. #mediate #mediatedontlitigate #mediationskills

Darren Soto Leads Letter Calling for Statewide Mediation Programs as Foreclosure, Eviction Moratorium Ends |

"U.S. Rep. Darren Soto, D-Fla., led a letter this week requesting Florida courts to implement statewide mediation programs to give homeowners and tenants a chance to save their homes."

Bravo! I wish more court systems across the country would consider mediation as a precursor to foreclosure or to resolve landlord/tenant disputes. I have experience negotiating these types of issues if anyone here locally in Virginia needs my help.

Exploring Mediation in Netflix's Tiger King

My article on how mediation could've helped Joe and Carole in Netflix's Tiger King 🐅 was published this afternoon! Thank you! Netflix's ubiquitous documentary, Tiger King, is a real-life lesson in the value of mediation over litigation. Whether you're Joe Exotic battling with Carole Baskin, an employee frustrated with a co-worker, or a spouse leaving a marriage, mediation can work efficiently while preserving your sanity,....

The Real Ladies of Loudoun County

Thank you so much for featuring Atlantic Mediation this month! I enjoyed the conversation!

I sat down with Erin Fisher from Atlantic Mediation to discuss some very important topic, such as.....
How she can help you with a divorce or custody issues, conflicts in your workplace or neighborhood, or work with your child and classmates in their school.
Mediation’s primary goal is to reduce conflict and help people move forward in peace.

What is mediation?
How is a mediator different than an attorney?
What happens when you mediate?
Why would I want to hire a mediator even if I have an attorney?
Are you able to mediate during COVID-19?
Where do you meditate in Virginia?
Why did you want to be a mediator?
I've been to relationship counseling and we're staying together, but some of the same fights keep coming up. Can you help us settle our conflict once and for all?
Do you work with custody issues?

[05/10/20]   Happy Mother's Day! This is my 13th anniversary of the best title in the world. 🥰

Why Choose Mediation?


We’ve all had to deal with interpersonal conflict at some point in our life: a bad break-up, a divorce, a workplace dispute, or a conflict with a roommate, neighbor, or classmate. It was a really tough time, wasn’t it? Or perhaps you are experiencing it now and you just want the situation to end and/or improve. It is difficult to focus on anything else and perhaps you’re feeling stressed out, anxious, trapped, and stuck. Ugh. I’ve been there.

This is when a mediator can help, especially if anger is the primary emotion for you or your ex-husband/friend/co-worker, etc. Why? Well my friends, anger is a strange beast. It can trick you into thinking that your best bet is to sue and experience your own “Law & Order” moment where you get to tell the judge how terribly you’ve been treated. However, the reality is that it never works out that way in real life, especially if you have children. Litigation is lengthy, expensive, bitter, and public. You have little control over the outcome because a settlement is imposed upon you by a judge or an arbitrator. You don’t get a choice in the matter. If you don’t like how it all turns out in court, there is very little (and sometimes nothing) you can do. This is why mediation is a much better alternative than litigation - you get to decide what right looks like. Does a judge or attorneys know what what’s best for you (and your child(ren))? Nope. They didn’t know best for me either. I chose mediation for my own divorce/custody issues years ago and I have never regretted it. In fact, I became such an advocate for #mediationoverlitigation that I became a mediator myself to help other families and individuals resolve their conflicts and move forward in peace -- while maintaining control of the outcome.

Mediation is a highly-personalized, private, caring -- oh, and it costs significantly less than going to court. You get to negotiate your own agreement with the help of a trained, highly-skilled mediator who is bound by a State Code of Ethics (Virginia, in my case). As a mediator, I act as a facilitator - not an advocate, judge, or therapist. I am required to maintain complete neutrality and use my skills to help you solve your own problems. I assist you in identifying the issues, explore alternatives, and help you reach voluntary agreements confidentially. I also draft the settlement agreements, custody and property settlement agreements, and memorandums of understanding for signature that may become legally binding.
