Facilitator and Trainer
Stephen Sulmeyer

Psychologist, lawyer and mediator Dr. Stephen Sulmeyer helps people in conflict get to the human heart of disputes. Drawing on more than 20 years of mediation experience, he helps parties in conflict to understand as deeply as possible what is at the root of their conflict in order to resolve it.

“Talking honestly and openly about the emotional as well as the legal aspects of a dispute tends to lead not only to resolution, but also more robust, enduring and satisfying agreements.”

Known for his emotional and intellectual intelligence and his capacity to blend the two, Stephen specializes in disputes involving close professional and family relationships, as well as commercial and business disputes. He is a sought-after speaker and trainer and the founder and former president of Integrative Mediation Bay Area, an organization that brings together psychotherapist, financial industry and attorney co-mediators in challenging cases.
