Our Team

Principal Mediator and Arbitrator Meagan Bensadoun

Meagan’s mediation experience started in small claims court, to helping alongside family court and now in private practise. Her passion to start eye to eye mediation stems from making sure all cases main focus is in the best interests of the children and creating parenting plans that every party can easily follow. Following her BA in Psychology, Meagan completed 4 certificates in alternative dispute resolution, family mediation and family arbitration. In addition to public court and private practise, she has volunteered in outreach community projects to implement peer mediation programs in schools to teach children her passion for alternative dispute resolution. Her personable manner, active listening, and creative thinking has given her the leverage needed to devise strategic plans following family hardship that focus on compromise, fairness and accommodating the unique needs of her clients and their families.

Child Consultant
Stephanie Stavro-Pearce

Child consulting involves speaking with the children in private, outside of the mediation to assist families in making arrangements that reflect the best interests of the children. After the voice of the child is shared in mediation, parents are able to make informed decisions reflecting their family’s unique needs.

Stephanie is a Registered Social Worker and has a Masters in Social Work from the University of Toronto. She brings clinical experience from working with high-conflict separating families, families involved in the court system, supporting at-risk youth, and most recently as a school based-social worker. Stephanie has been described by clients as engaging, caring and easy to talk to. For more information on Child Consulting Services, please contact us directly.
