What Happens In Mediation?


Mediator listens to understand and clarify each participants needs and wishes.


Mediator supports an open dialogue facilitating a constructive conversation.


Participants create ideas for resolution and make all decisions about the outcome. 


"During my twenty years of practicing law, I witnessed the time, money, and emotional energy exhausted in litigation. When folks create their own solution in a private mediation, they usually feel better, save time and money, and the resolution lasts. Mediation helps people engage in meaningful and constructive conversations."

-Sherry Bruckner, Civil and Family Mediator

“Sherry is compassionate, talented, and open minded. I highly recommend Bruckner Mediation.”

Katie T.

“Sherry was the first person I contacted when a conflict came up and I needed some insight before responding. As a service-oriented business, it is imperative the needs of my clients come first without detriment to the business. She has a unique way of helping one see from different perspectives, of wording responses so that others’ needs are heard and met and of keeping the conversation continuing until both parties felt an adequate resolution.”

Melissa O.

“Sherry gave me a chance to consider my own messaging and habits, which gave me the curiosity to discover new perspectives and insights. In finding peace within myself, I am also becoming a more understanding, compassionate, and loving partner in my relationships.” 

Jami G.

“Sherry has the unique ability to use both her intuition and her intellect when approaching any situation. This well-rounded ability makes for an approach to situations that is both practical and intuitive. She asks questions that lead to the solutions and uncovers practical ways of resolving them. Whomever she encounters will be working with the very best and I am grateful to have been one of them.”
