Rebecca

Rebecca Marsh, Director

Rebecca specializes in working with families going through divorce, co-parenting, and parental alienation. Rebecca has had training in mediation from the University of Houston Law Center and in addition, specific training for couples divorcing needing child custody mediation and in negotiating parenting plans that are best for the children based on their developmental needs.  Rebecca currently serves as a mediator through the Harris County Dispute Resolution Center for Judge Louie Ditta Justice of the Peace Court; Precinct 8.

The foundation of her mediation approach is based on connecting with people and helping them to achieve healthy family boundaries moving forward after divorce.  Her approach toward relationships is with compassion for whatever family dynamic you are in. Her goal during each mediation is to achieve an empathic and respectful connection with her clients so that they can communicate with each other their desires and goals.  Each mediation session is very individualized, with Rebecca focused on bringing out each person’s true perspective.

She assists each client in examining new strategies to achieve clarification and honesty within themselves so that they may convey to the other party their driven motivation for their decisions. Rebecca specializes in family and divorce mediation.

She helps couples in slowing down their interactions of communication to reveal deeper motivations to decisions; helping couples in moving forward toward positive interactions in their now divorced relationship. The length of each mediation session is determined by each parties’ specific needs and goals.

In addition to being a prominent family and divorce mediator, Rebecca is also a marriage and family therapist and had helped thousands of couples achieve better communication and expression of their inner wants and needs within their relationship.  Rebecca also has a unique previous 19 year career background that has included working at NASA\Johnson Space Center as a flight controller in the Mission Control Center.   She has extensive experience in conflict management and dispute resolution, while serving on numerous Space Shuttle and International Space Station missions in Houston Command and Ground Control team lead roles under numerous NASA Flight Directors.  Her critical thinking skills have allowed her to remain calm yet decisive during crisis scenarios.  

Rebecca provides family and divorce mediation for the League City, Dickinson, Friendswood, Webster, South Shore, Clear Lake, NASA, Kemah, Nassau Bay and Seabrook surrounding areas.  She would be honored to help you work through your most private issues using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) during mediation.

Susan

 Susan Rokes

Susan Rokes is an active volunteer mediator with the Dispute Resolution Center (DRC) of Harris County, serving since 2017, mediating a variety of cases in the Justice of Peace Courts as well as at the DRC, including family cases. Mediations have ranged from insurance disputes to dog bite conflicts and included breach of contract cases of all varieties. Susan received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Houston Bar Association in 2018 for mediation with the Harris County Dispute Resolution Center.  Her interest in mediation began in 1994 when she received training through the Montgomery County Dispute Resolution Center.  She was recertified in basic and family mediation at the Harris County Dispute Resolution Center in 2017.

Susan believes mediation is the best approach to solving conflicts as it gives the parties the dignity of shaping and owning the resolution instead of having someone else make decisions about their lives.  Her approach is to keep the parties together as much as possible to enable them to talk to each other, understand each side’s perspective and craft a joint resolution that is the best solution for all involved.  She views her role as guiding the parties in their discussion, to help clarify perspectives and priorities, explore possible solutions and verify that the resolution works for the parties.

Susan’s career began in Medical Technology, specializing in Microbiology.  During the latter years while working as a medical technologist, she attended the University of Houston Law Center, completing her J.D.  She briefly worked as a lawyer, volunteered as a mediator with the Montgomery County Dispute Resolution Center, then entered the HIV Prevention field where she found her home until retiring at the end of 2019.  In the HIV prevention work, Susan educated, trained, supervised, monitored prevention programs, directed a counseling and testing program, counseled clients about staying healthy as well as testing them for HIV and delivering results and referrals, and lastly, consulted with two counties to establish new HIV Prevention programs.

Susan believes in and is dedicated to the mediation process.
