SEPARATION can be isolating and lonely

EMOTIONS may be heightened 


I CAN HELP facilitate the conversation


Hey Everyone. I posted a little while ago looking for a divorce lawyer and it was suggested that I go through mediation first. (Thanks for the tip)

Lisa Sills at Sills Mediation reached out and I couldn't be more thankful. Her ability to provide neutral mental clarity along with amazing compassionate advice is beyond anything I could have hoped for.  If anyone else in this situation (I hope you're not) and looking for some help I HIGHLY recommend contacting her.

Thanks for all the help!

What is Family Mediation?

Family Mediation is a guided process used to resolve matters involving a family. The goal is to reach a mutually  accepted agreement on the matters being discussed.


 A mediator is an un-biased neutral third party. The mediator does not tell the parties what to do, but can help the  parties reach their own agreements, while trying to improve the communication between them.


 Family mediation provides a space to reach your own solutions in a safe and comfortable setting.



  • Ensure the safety of all family members
  • Focus the attention on the best interests of the child(ren)
  • Provide an equal voice to all parties
  • Reduce the emotional stress on all involved
  • Reduce the financial cost of resolving the family disputes
  • Minimize conflict
  • Fair and reasonable agreement decided by the parties


How much does mediation cost in the National Capital Region?

  • An average mediation session is 6-8+ hours
  • Mediation fees range between $125/hour to $300/hour + HST
  • That makes the average cost of mediation in Ottawa approximately $2,400 + HST ( based on 8 hours).

Do you offer payment plans for Divorce Mediation?

  • If cost is an issue, please speak to me. I might be able to work out a payment plan with you. I go case by case.
  • I offer sliding fee scale mediation services in Ottawa, Rockland, Prescott-Russell, Leeds and Grenville, Arnprior, Carleton Place, Kemptville, Brockville, Prescott, Smiths Falls and surrounding areas

Do I need a lawyer ?

  • Independent Legal Advice is recommended in all cases.
  • Lawyers represent your individual rights.
  • Mediators are neutral non-biased third parties, that facilitate communication between the parties and do not represent one party or the others' interest.
