“Mediation is absolutely essential in family disputes involving divorce or custody issues,” said Dr. Memel. “It takes heart and creativity to help families navigate those waters without causing more harm than good. It has always been my goal to provide a safe, caring, and confidential environment where in families can successfully resolve any issues between them and to give them tools to handle the process.”
Aside from her mediation practice which involves child custody mediation, divorce mediation, business and family mediation, Dr. Memel is trained in parenting skills education and individual, couple and family counseling and psychotherapy.

She has developed a 10-page Child Custody & Visitation Parenting Plan which she customizes for clients to include all aspects of parenting during and after divorce.
Dr. Memel’s five years of experience as a professional paralegal in family law provides an excellent legal background that serves her well, either when working independently or as part of a therapist/attorney team. She is a recognized member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, Academy of Family Mediators, as well as the Association of Family & Conciliation Courts.
