Amy’s personal values in Mediation are:
- A divorce is not a moral failing and there should be no stigma associated with it.
- Just because a marriage does not last forever does not mean it was a failure or had no good in it.
- Moving past anger, blame, shame and guilt is essential if former spouses are to effectively co-parent.
- Unhealed divorce wounds can poison the rest of a person’s life, leaving them too broken to find the happiness they are leaving their marriage to seek.
- All obstacles to peace can be overcome through understanding and new insights that often come with time.
