Description of Practice

Let's explore if mediation with Held is right for you. I provide a free phone consultation where we will check in about your situation and explore my background, modalities, and experience. I provide a space for people in conflict to come together to openly communicate, make self-determined decisions, and move forward with their lives; coming out of holding patterns and emerging into possibility.

As your mediator I believe that you are the best decision-maker in your life. With the container and guidance that I provide you are supported to communicate freely, find clarity, and make agreements in supported, thoughtful, and authentic ways.

Conflict is heavy. Let Held take the weight off & help you to make space for TRANSFORMATION, GROWTH, & HEALING.


Lucille holds a Master of Public Administration from Marist College, BA in Sociology from SUNY New Paltz, and a Paralegal Certification from Marist College.
