Dr. Barbara Timmons Strahl is an experienced mediator, facilitator, conflict coach and educator. She has a doctorate in Conflict Analysis and Resolution and has worked in conflict resolution and transformation for more than 25 years.
Formerly at the Clark County Courts Neighborhood Justice Center (NJC), Barbara trained and mentored all of the County mediators for almost 16 years. Many local attorneys and conflict resolution professionals participated in barbara’s mediation training and continuing education for mediators.
Barbara believes mediation is preferable to litigation which can be costly, time consuming, and end in decisions parties are not satisfied with. Mediation allows participants to discuss issues in privacy and design resolutions that work with their life and circumstances. As a mediator, Barbara helps parties communicate, explore, and work toward what’s important to them. Solutions arrived at in mediation may have never be thought of before this process.
Barbara regularly mediates discrimination and multiparty cases. Her clients include the United States Postal Service, the Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Her practice has included disputes ranging from business to criminal and divorce to neighbor.
