About Benjamin Feldman

I offer mediation and conflict coaching services to help people work through the conflicts that are keeping them from living their best lives. This is not a side gig. This is what I do.

Prior to becoming a full-time mediator and coach, I had a diverse career, including stints in teaching, tutoring, and university fundraising. In all of my work, I have sought to master the art of communication and honed my ability to build relationships, guide people, and manage conflict. Along the way, I have learned to listen more than I speak and to trust people to make the best decisions for themselves.

In addition to mediation and coaching, passions of mine include reading, writing, movies, music, yoga, travel, and hiking, as well as meaningful time spent with family and friends. You and I might never talk about my broader interests, but throughout our time together, you will feel my care for people and the world in which we live.

Originally from Southeastern Pennsylvania, I have lived in Pittsburgh for over two decades. I hold a bachelor's degree from Harvard University and a Master of Fine Arts in Writing from the University of Pittsburgh. To prepare for intensive work in Divorce Mediation, I completed a training with the Center for Mediation & Training that has been approved by the Academy of Professional Family Mediators. As part of training for conflict coaching, I completed the CINERGY Conflict Management Coaching Workshop, which has been approved by the International Coaching Federation. I have also participated in trainings in Community Mediation, Conflict Resolution, Intergroup Dialogue, and more. I have trained with some of the best in the business and continue to seek ways to get even better at helping you thrive in some of your most challenging moments.

I am a member of the Academy of Professional Family Mediators, the Pennsylvania Council of Mediators, and the Mediation Council of Western Pennsylvania. I am a board member of the Mediation Council of Western Pennsylvania. I am a volunteer community mediator at Just Mediation Pittsburgh.

Thank you for your interest my services. I look forward to discussing the possibility of working with you.

Ben
