Toronto family lawyer Nathalie Boutet has been awarded the title of Accredited Family Mediator (AccFM) by the Ontario Association of Family Mediators (OAFM). This designation is sanctioned by the Ontario provincial government.
According to OAFM, family mediators have the expertise to approach emotionally charged situations, screen for safety, objectively assess the points of conflict and facilitate balanced settlements for participants. Family mediation requires a nuanced understanding of conflict resolution theory and practice, psychology, interpersonal relationships, family dynamics and family law.
With more than 22 years of experience in family law, mediation and collaborative family law, Nathalie, chose to pursue the AccFM designation to demonstrate the highest level of understanding in order to better serve her clients. She welcomes mediation referrals.
