I am Ellen Morfei – your professional mediator and coach at Progressive Conflict Solutions located in Media, PA. I’m here to help you.
I bring years of professional experience in conflict resolution and a broad skill set to the mediation table: the directness, analytical skills, and results-orientation of a successful global manager in a major corporation; the attention, empathy and tough love of a trusted friend; and the wisdom of a single parent with a mostly “good divorce” and nearly two decades of co-parenting experience.
I employ diverse and flexible conflict resolution techniques and strategies to best suit your needs and situation. Perhaps most importantly, I listen with an attuned ear that helps me understand your conflict and the underlying factors at play. My coaching background enables me to provide support to both parties in the dispute, helping you reach an ideal and lasting agreement. When your dispute pertains to an important relationship — like those with co-parents, colleagues, neighbors, or friends – I can steer it back to a healthier place.
Many mediators shy away from the idea of coaching both parties in a conflict, fearing that it might undermine their impartiality. I find that both clients feel most comfortable and confident knowing that I understand their individual needs and goals in the dispute and am working to help them reach an agreement that honors both perspectives. Whether you need help understanding the financial implications of a proposal, a review of your future budget, a strategic perspective on how you are communicating with the other party, or a moment to blow off steam before returning to the mediation table, I can help.
I look forward to working with you.
