Referring professionals say...
"As a psychologist, I have come to learn that how couples separate is often the best predictor of the quality of their relationship after the divorce. When the separation process can successfully move a couple from contention to consensus, from mud-slinging to problem solving, both people can begin to heal and renew their faith in relationships. In my opinion, mediation is the best process for helping couples move on and find their separate life paths.

Professional mediation requires enormous skill, training, empathy and patience. Beth Danehy brings all of these qualities and more to her mediation work. She goes beyond simply helping couples frame agreements: She tries to help them heal the pain they bring to the process so that they can truly begin the rest of their lives. I have referred a number of my patients to Beth, with excellent results. In fact, she is the only mediator in Rochester to whom I regularly refer. Beth's tact, intelligence, and trustworthiness make her an ideal mediator, and I am just so grateful to have her as a resource for my patients."

"My compliments on a very well thought out, comprehensive agreement. My client was very satisfied with the mediation process. It met her goals and expectations. (The client) was very well prepared and informed...I shared my comments and observations with her and legal fees were kept to a minimum, since I was starting with an informed client and a good solid document."
