She is honored to help other families create their healthiest coparenting lives, together.
Shana Mountcastle, Founder
Shana Mountcastle cofounded Clean Slate Mediation with Erinn Hall in order to assist families in her community involved in divorce and custody disagreements, in coming to a mutually agreeable resolution, all the while, maintaining primary focus on the best interest of any children involved. Shana has a passion for helping people and teaching them ways to improve their overall well-being by handling conflict in a more positive and productive way. Her diverse and extensive professional background in management, customer service, banking, sales negotiations, and training, along with her extensive experience in social services programs serving individuals impacted by domestic violence and abuse, equip her with valuable skills to facilitate successful agreements. In addition, her personal experience as a single mother juggling a career and 3 small children gives her great insight and perspective valuable to any family she is assisting. Shana is the proud mother of 4 beautiful children, 3 of whom she shares joint custody with their father. Having gone through the Family Court System, she knows the value of open communication and putting differences aside for the good of the children. She has made coparenting a priority from the beginning, and actively sought a relationship with their future stepmother, Erinn Hall. The two were fast friends and had a shared vision of helping others understand the benefits of true, child-centered coparenting. Clean Slate Mediation is the product of their friendship and their commitment to providing families a healthy alternative to the long term damage custody litigation can inflict on the entire family.
