"Starting Family Mediation with Monique Browne was one of the best decisions I made going though this process. From the initial session I had with Monique, straight through to the end of our mediation session, Monique showed consistency, neutrality and compassion for what my husband and I were experiencing. At the end of the mediation we both received a comprehensive document, that spoke true of what we needed and desired from our separation. Monique’s attentiveness to detail and expertise in the field, really proven to be an asset, as I believe it allocated a lot of ease during this difficult time for my family. Monique’s level of professionalism is at high standards and she understanding the human experiences this divorce and separation process creates. I have and will continue to recommend Monique to anyone who is looking for services."

"Monique Browne is a wonderful and compassionate yet firm counselor. She offers real hard concrete options that make individuals feel safe and heard. Her exceptional knowledge of the Family Court system is bar none. I would be remiss if I did not also mention Monique’s solid ADR background, which has allowed her to proficiently and tactfully handle the sensitive needs of her clients".

“I just want to take some time to talk about my colleague who is an amazing well rounded mediator. As an employee of the court system it's great to have someone who is understanding, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. The clients I deal with have a lot of different and complex issues but I have had the opportunity to recommend a lot of them to Monique and she has handled them with sensitivity and respect. She has taken the negative stigma away from the mediation process. She has made it easy and painless to deal with personal issues and find resources. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of support.”
