The small New Mexico flag pin indicates not only that I have worked with and for the NM state government but also am proud to be a New Mexican.

About Philip Crump: Integrity, Professionalism, Empathy, Experience

My commitment:
• To move people confronting a difficult situation along a common path toward mutual, lasting resolution of issues
• So that they experience relief, renewed personal strength, and increased capacity to work together comfortably
• Thereby best serving themselves and those they influence.

 

My clients know me for my skill, integrity, empathy and calm professionalism. Since 1992, I have helped many people in conflict find effective and peaceful ways to reach effective mutual decisions and resolution of their conflicts. Through my own varied life experience, I understand diverse perspectives and issues; these are reflected in the wide range of subject areas in which I successfully mediate.

I am a Professional Mediator. This is what I do; I am not a lawyer or a psychologist or counselor or accountant or anything but a mediator. People who practice mediation as a sidebar to their regular work can be helpful but the typically do not have the training, skills and focus that a fulltime professional mediator has. I am Certified by the New Mexico Mediation Association, listed as a Practitioner with the Association for Conflict Resolution and considered one of the senior mediators in New Mexico. I will use all my training and experience to assist you in reaching resolution.

Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth;  Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace;  Let peace fill our hearts, our world, our universe.
       A Prayer for Peace --Satish Kumar (1981)

As I point out in the section on Divorce and Family Mediation:
I have returned to full time private practice in Santa Fe, following over 2-˝ years as Family Court Mediator in the Second Judicial District Court in Albuquerque.  It was a great program, designed to serve lower-income self-represented parties; it was a unique opportunity for a professional mediator.  I look forward to sharing the benefits of my Court experience with clients.  I am also quite happy to have returned to my community.  I can help you be your best, even in trying times!

Since 1969, I have been a proud resident of New Mexico and I’ve been a Santa Fe resident since 1989. My work history includes Peace Corps (India), extensive construction experience and public school teaching. My mediation career embraces many areas of conflict resolution study and practice, including:

• divorce, child custody and family issues
• workplace conflict (with individuals and groups)
• EEOC and ADA complaints
• special education (due process complaints and IEPs)

• construction and business conflicts
• organizational issues
• facilitation of public and private meetings

 

 

In addition to the practice areas indicated in this website, I encourage you to visit my Professional Resume, which lists the diversity of my professional training; I believe it is important for me continually to hone my skills and perspectives through ongoing professional development. This is one of the ways in which I provide the highest level of competence to my clients.

As a sole general practitioner, I am available to discuss application of a compassionate process of communication and resolution to many arenas of disagreement.  As a matter of course, I provide up to a half-hour of free consultation, offering people an opportunity to get to know me and my approach and decide whether to proceed with my services.

You can read about mediation and my work at Santa Fe New Mexican article about mediation and hear a radio interview with me about workplace mediation at PEACE TALKS: MEDIATION IN THE WORKPLACE. An additional article (from the Journal North) describes many of the advantages of mediation.

MEDIATOR VALUES:
My approach encompasses the values I hold as a mediator and facilitator, including:

Act compassionately—because each person has needs to be acknowledged

Demonstrate patience and flexibility—because it may take longer than planned

Remain nonjudgmental—because my opinion will only interfere with their resolution

Exemplify objectivity & neutrality—I will advocate for everyone at the table

Model respect and trust—because each person adds value to the discussion

Encourage mutuality & optimism—because creativity occurs when people work together

Show empathy & acceptance—I can understand and accept others’ experience

Practice detachment and harmlessness—because my job is to keep everyone safe

As a professional mediator concerned with maintaining the highest standards of practice for my chosen profession, I subscribe fully to the Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators created jointly by the Association for Conflict Resolution, the American Bar Association and the American Arbitration Association. These Standards outline the expectations for professional mediators who aspire to provide their clients the highest level of service with integrity and competence.
