Divorce & Custody Mediation
“Ellen helped facilitate fairness and balance in our process. She really took a deep look at the balance of it: ensuring that we both felt 100% that the agreement represented both of our needs and wants. I think in the end we all benefited greatly, especially our son, who was probably the primary beneficiary of Ellen’s excellent work.”
"Ellen Morfei is a caring, intuitive, and generous conflict resolution specialist. Her worksheets and insights into my conflict resolution style were very helpful in broadening my awareness of the larger situation I was in, and she offered practical advice on how I can shift my style to create more satisfying outcomes when faced with conflicts."
Organizational Mediation and Facilitation
“Over and over again, in meetings and group facilitation, Ellen displayed her uncanny ability to maneuver people through landmines of conflict, keep meetings on track, help find a compassionate angle from which to view dissenting opinions, and lead focused group meetings with strict agendas and goals. Her talents are boundless in this area, and she is always even-tempered and able to step outside of emotional attachment to help everyone move forward.”
Couples & Custody Mediation
“Ellen worked miracles in bringing clarity and organization into what seemed at the time a hopeless mess. I was very impressed with how Ellen was able to hear and validate both parties and yet remain impartial to taking sides. The contract that we created together gave us a foundation and base to work from. My ex-partner and I still refer to it today as a helpful reminder for us when we veer back into our unhealthy patterns of dealing with each other.”
“Ellen has assisted me in negotiating a very complicated employment agreement. She was able to quickly hone in on the essential components, and was also able to help me separate the facts and the necessary information from the emotional content. Her approach is both logical and compassionate. She is extremely pragmatic, wise and intuitive.”
Mediation & Mentoring
“I was truly amazed by her mediation skills. She asks the right questions at the right time and makes the right summaries — ultimately to let the clients reach their own agreement. ”
“Ellen listened patiently while I described various scenarios and interactions with my boss. With this information, Ellen identified the conflict for me, assisted in guiding me in not only resolving the dilemma internally, but presented several solutions to address my conflict. Ellen’s expertise was a great help in pinpointing my true conflict and resolving it with strength and confidence. The added benefit of role playing encouraged me to take what I learned from Ellen and put it into action.”
Facilitation and Consulting
“Ellen’s extraordinary coaching and mediation skills meant that she was able to strategize and build consensus so that the project could be successfully completed. Ellen has that unique approach that allows her to successfully manage seemingly insurmountable conflict situations.”
