After having a very unusual experience with another mediator, we began to research on the Internet for another in the area. After viewing TLC’s professional website and viewing Jann’s personal video we were sold. It was a Sunday and we decided to call the office to leave a message to book an appointment. We were surprised when Jann herself answered the call. She spoke with us for at least 20 minutes. We were so pleased by her professionalism and warmth.
After our first session we were well on our way to a pleasant arrangement. Jann put us in touch with an attorney to fill out the paperwork and file for us, and now we are days away from divorcing.
I would highly recommend TLC Mediation. read less

Jann is detail oriented but not so focused on the details that she is not able to see the big picture. If you are in the midst of a divorce or have a post judgment issue arise that you cannot resolve between yourselves, it is in both parties’ best interests to first attempt to resolve the financial issues by utilizing Jann’s expertise. Jann will deescalate the tension that often accompanies divorce and divorce related issues and help both parties come to a resolution that they can both live with and that is ultimately fair. As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) and as a financial advisor, Jann has the knowledge and expertise to address complicated and high asset divorces. In addition, Jann has a Master’s in Social work and was previously a therapist, which reflects that she has the ability to see the issues from the perspective of each party and enables her to focus on the issues most important to each party, increasing the chance that settlement will be reached. I highly recommend Jann and her mediation practice as she is not only excellent and gets results, she actually cares about helping others reach a resolution so they can move on with their lives. read less
