My name is Sthea Mason-Kapoor and I provide third party neutral services remotely by phone, or video conferencing. I also mediate in-person in Texas in the Austin-Round Rock metro area as well as throughout Williamson, Travis, Bastrop, Lee, Bell and Burnet counties.
I am a credentialed mediator and have studied conflict for over 20 years. I focus my mediation practice at this time on small business/customer disputes and on conflicts related to housing, including:
- Friends and roommates
- Multi-generational households
- Landlords and tenants
- Teens and their parents.
My approach to mediation is a little different though. For one thing, my fee scale is designed to be accessible and reasonable for various types of mediation and situations. Learn more about whether mediation and my services are a good fit for your situation by reading my page of FAQs on Mediation.
As a starting point, a list of questions to help you make the most of a mediation session.
Growing up with four siblings I looked hard for ways to communicate better and help the group make decisions that were acceptable to everyone. My interest in conflict resolution led me to study peace and conflict in the Middle East and later to work for an organization in India founded by the Dalai Lama. Before I became a mediator I also obtained a Master’s degree in Conflict Transformation from the School for International Training. My understanding of conflict cycles and peacemaking is broad and holistic. You can read more about my training and professional experience in About Me.
Get in touch to ask me a question or schedule a free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
Symbols and rituals can be useful for mediating relationship conflict when parties have no choice but to continue to interact in the future.
