What is Private Mediation Prep?
Private Mediation preparation takes place in a one-on-one meeting that helps you to:
Prepare for Mediation (Family Court Services)
Discuss Alternatives to Going to Court
How to Book
Send us a direct message, and we’ll set up a time to meet for 1-2 hours by phone one or two days prior to your mediation date. I request that you email me any pertinent information before our meeting in order to provide better guidance.

What People Are Saying
“I never felt much confidence in my parenting skills, and when I had my second child it only got worse. Now I feel like I am in control, and my kids are even listening to me! It makes life so much better.”
“We love our kids, but parenting was very stressful until we took your class. We are happier and so are our kids! Thank you!”
“Thanks to Heidi and her workshop format, I could complete my court-ordered parenting class in time. Not only that, but I learned SO MUCH!! I don’t know what I would’ve done without her. Thanks Happy Heart Parenting!”
