“Before we hired Steven, we’d spent $68,600 on lawyers and $13,800 on two other mediators over 16 months, and got worse fighting. Steven stepped into a totally impossible mess of hatred and mistrust that we’d bought with all that money, and he turned it completely around. Got us in agreement. And he did the impossible for less money than either of the other clueless mediators took from us – from our children really.” — DS & RS

“Seventeen years. Four “super duper” therapists in New York and San Francisco. Nothing really changed. Until I worked with you in little old Boulder, I didn’t know what it was to transform myself and my relationships. I guess there’s no way to know the real deal until you’ve done it. I’m so glad I decided to try one last time with you. The time and money was the best investment I’ve ever made.”— I.P.
