Amy Everson Biography

Amy Everson is an experienced divorce and family mediator. She has completed the University of Wisconsin Mediation Skills Course, the Family Mediation Center training in Milwaukee, and the Building Blocks training through the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin, where she also serves on the board. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison as undergrad in 1986 and with a Master's Degree in 1988. She later earned a second Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Working with couples and families has created for Amy a deep understanding of interpersonal dynamics, and she is adept at employing strategies for reduction of conflict.

Divorce is a major life transition and can be difficult to navigate. In a mediated approach, agreements are facilitated in the context of clients' experiences as you move towards the next chapter of life. In her work as a mediator, Amy understands that even as the form of a relationship is changing, when clients are able to collaborate on reducing conflict during that transition, you feel better on the other side of the process. If children are involved, mediation provides support for learning approaches to future problem solving in co-parenting. Amy's professional background also allows her to serve in the roles of Child Specialist and Parent Coordinator, supporting decisions that are in the best interests of the children.

Mediation is an efficient, cost-effective approach to divorce and conflict-resolution which supports clients with strategies for decision-making and problem solving that serve them long after the period of divorce has passed.
