We are passionate about conflict resolution
At West Coast Family Mediation Center, we are passionate about helping families resolve conflict, rebuild connection, and have a renewed sense of self, no matter the direction they choose. In line with these principles, we believe in the importance of our community and giving back. Take a look at the many different ways we serve our community.
If you have an idea for a community service project that promotes conflict resolution, contact us!
Feeding San Diego
It is always great to give back! Our team got together to volunteer at Feeding San Diego in Sorrento Valley! We make an effort to give back at least 4 times throughout the year.
Food Drive with San Diego Food Bank
More than 1 in 7 people in San Diego County face the threat of hunger every day. Our most recent food drive with the San Diego Food Bank brought in a total of 53 pounds of food that will allow them to provide 44 meals to those in need. That is a wonderful impact!
Each year for the holidays instead of providing our referral partners with a gift we make donations to organizations that we care about and are in line with our mission. This year our team picked the places to donate and we supported the following organizations:
Divorce is difficult for all parties. We strive to create ways that clients can be supported through the entire process. That is why we run quarterly workshops together with other professionals in the areas of mental health, therapy, finance, and more. If you are interested in attending or running a future workshop, contact Todd, our Director of Mediation Services, for more information.
Workshops we have hosted include:
Expressive Therapy Kids’ Workshop with Natalie Cruz, MA, REAT
Natalie led the children and parents in an art project to help the children express their feelings around their parents divorce.
Women’s Expressive Art Therapy Workshop with Natalie Cruz, MA, REAT
Natalie led a workshop for adult clients to use art to express their feelings.
Men’s Support Workshop with Craig Lambert, LMFT
Craig held a support workshop for clients to meet and provide support from others going through divorce.
Kids’ Turn San Diego
Kids’ Turn San Diego changes family relationships in positive ways so children experiencing family separations and divorce have happier childhoods and brighter futures. West Coast Family Mediation Center routinely donates to this great cause. We passionately believe that when children feel better about their family situations, they worry less about adult problems, do better in school, and have happier childhoods!

San Diego Unified School District
When kids learn to solve problems through proper and peaceful communication, it can set them up for success. The team at West Coast Family Mediation Center has mediated in Mission Bay High School and we are actively looking for developing a program to further assist kids in our community. If you work for a local school and would like to participate in developing a conflict resolution workshop, we would love to hear from you.
