“Some have said to me, isn’t your profession depressing? My resounding response is NO, my focus and goal is to assist people through, and in some cases, the most devastating times of their lives."
Connie Fraser has over forty years of experience dealing with human relationships and conflict. Whether you are dealing with a rebellious teenager, an aging parent, a partner or a spouse; she can help all involved communicate so that each person is heard. If you are dealing with conflict in a work environment, Connie has years of experience navigating complex work relationships in an environment that may or not foster team work.
The goal in mediation is not to have a ‘win’ so that someone else may ‘lose’. Mediation is not therapy. It is a facilitated dialogue between you and the person that you are in conflict with.
Connie has held numerous positions as a Leader, a Manager and a Trainer, in the Rochester Community both as a volunteer and a paid employee. She received her training as a Professional Mediator through the Mediation Center, Center for Dispute Settlement and the Rochester NY Collaborative Law Association. Connie is a member of the New York State Counsel of Divorce Mediators, the Collaborative Law Association of the Rochester Area, the International Association of Collaborative Professionals, the Rochester Association of Family Mediators, and Academy of Professional Family Mediators.
“I understand what it is like to deal with loss and starting over. I know first hand what it is like to to come up with a new Plan B, because Plan A no longer works for you or even exists."
If you are facing the prospect of a separation or divorce, Connie can help you draft a Parenting Plan that meets the needs of your family. As well as addressing the financial aspects – the division of your assets and debts as you separate a household. The process does not have to be adversarial.
Connie Fraser Mediation will help you sort through the details and help you and your spouse, partner or workmate, make decisions so that you can move forward to the next chapter of your lives.
