Divorce Mediation is a process in which both parties work with a neutral third party, the mediator, to help them come to an agreement to dissolve the marriage, fairly divide assets and arrange a parenting time schedule for any children involved. As a caring mental health professional Sarah pays particular attention to managing and containing the often difficult emotions involved in this process.

Sarah Friedland, Divorce Mediator


  Divorce mediation is often a last resort after other options have been exhausted. It is, however an option that leads to less acrimony and is less emotionally draining than a traditional litigated divorce. Sarah takes into account all of the various pieces of the puzzle involved in each individual's situation, including children, assets and other factors.

Due to the needs of her clients, Sarah has expanded her professional practice and obtained specialized training in Divorce Mediation. Her areas of expertise include assisting couples with children, and LGBT couples. Her goal is to facilitate an outcome that each person can live with now and down the road. She strives to help couples going through the divorce process to remain amicable in the present and for years to come.

Sarah draws on her over 15 years of experience in the mental health field; including five years of experience in educational settings, and five years of experience as a clinical supervisor. Sarah has worked with a wide variety of people, each with their own situation and difficulties. She has knowledge of the Special Education field, crisis intervention, substance education, and remains current with trends in the LGBT community. She has experience working in a variety of mental health facilities including hospital programs, private practice, schools, residential facilities, and with the DCP&P/CSOC/DD populations.
