Ada L. Hasloecher, Mediator

After a successful commercial real estate career, Ada turned her extensive negotiating skills to conflict resolution, divorce and family mediation. Known among family, friends and colleagues as a natural “bridge-builder”, she trained at the Center for Family and Divorce Mediation in New York City where her formal education honed her natural abilities.
A lifelong learner, Ada participates in ongoing personal development & transformational  seminars and training courses through Landmark Education and EnlightenNext. A student of sociology, psychology, philosophy and ethics, she is an avid reader and actively pursues knowledge, understanding and compassion.  Ada earned a BA from Stony Brook University with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies with the concentration in sociology. 
Ada believes that conflict can be a tremendous opportunity for growth and transformation. She is passionate about helping couples emerge with new possibilities in their relationships as they create a new family structure. From the time she began mediating in 2004, Ada had a vision to open a center for divorcing families to find the support and resources needed to help couples navigate the uncertain and often daunting aspects of divorce. Fulfilling on this aspiration and providing the right resources is extremely rewarding for her. Mediating hundreds of couples over the past 6 years, Ada considers it a privilege to work with families in transition. 
Ada has presented before the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation, the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater New York, the Employee Assistant Providers Association and the annual tax symposiums of the National Conference of CPA Practitioners.
Her favorite quotes are from Soren Kierkegaard, the 19th Century Danish philosopher and theologian and her mother, Beverly Laxer:
Soren Kierkegaard: “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards”.
Beverly Laxer: “You get there when you get there and not one minute before.”
