Therese sees her primary role as restoring calm, reason, and productive dialogue so that the parties in conflict cannot only resolve their issues but can also genuinely transform their relationship. Therefore, she takes great pride in expanding her ability to surface and sort through the unresolved and often hidden diversity, emotional, and personality issues that impede those goals. 

 

Therese participates on a number of mediator panels, including the American Arbitration Association’s National Registry of Mediators, the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), the United States Postal Service/Redress EEO Program, The County of Los Angeles, Disputes Resolution Mediation Services, Department of Human Resources, and formerly with the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
