Karinya has a passion for conflict resolution. She is an innovative and energetic mediator and conflict resolution consultant who adopts a creative approach to resolving disputes and facilitating settlements.
Karinya spent most of her career as a corporate lawyer in Sydney, Australia. She left the legal profession after becoming increasingly frustrated with her clients spending millions of dollars on needless litigation. Thinking there must be a better way, Karinya set out to pursue her career in mediation and alternative dispute resolution. She has invested time and energy into understanding disputes: why they arise, why they persist and how they can be resolved.
Karinya loves the challenge of helping people resolve their disputes while bypassing the emotional and financial costs of litigation.
Karinya is a consultant with Mediating Solutions in Sherman Oaks, CA. She is also a Research Fellow at the prestigious Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University.
