Karen Aurit, LAMFT

Founder and Director Mediation Services | (480) 999-7399

My whole heart is dedicated to helping families through their most challenging times.

I care most about creating a safe, caring, and hopeful environment for our clients —a place where they find a sense of relief. My greatest hope is that our clients understand that we take care of everything for them because we care about them.

Michael and I created a mindful and strategic mediation process so that people can focus on making healthy choices for their futures while prioritizing their children’s needs.

As a center of excellence, we appreciate the importance of family dynamics, and we help parents understand, and provide for, their children’s psychological and emotional needs. We do this because we know this is the level of care you and your family need. Our exceptional team engages in ongoing intensive training to ensure our clients receive the best possible services and support.

We are here to help you.

I know it may be challenging to make healthy choices during this painful time, but you can, and we are here to help you every step of the way.
