The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation is now offering one hour of complimentary online Family Meditation for First Responders and their spouses who are experiencing acute family conflict due to pandemic-related stress.  


Mediation services will help partners communicate in a new way and find creative solutions to the unique challenges they are currently facing. The Aurit Center is inspired to use the “magic of mediation” to support First Responders to maintain healthy relationships through this time of uncertainty.  During the meeting, couples will improve communication, lower conflict, and reach understandings or agreements on points of contention.


“First Responders are on the front lines of this pandemic risking their lives to protect our families,” said Aurit Center Co-Founder and professional mediator, Michael Aurit. “Our goal is to support them by helping to resolve any conflict or challenges they are facing within their own family.” 


Karen Aurit, the Center’s Co-Founder, continued, “We acknowledge the complicated issues between couples that may arise out of stress and quick choices that must be decided. We want to do all we can to help them maintain healthy family dynamics.” 


The Aurit’s sister-in-law, Jennifer Knishinsky, is a New York City doctor, wife and mother, seeing COVID-19 patients on the front lines at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan.


The couples will attend their Mediation Meeting via video conference with an experienced Mediator who will help them to communicate in effective ways. Mediation may light a path for the couple to maintain a healthy relationship in the face of this crisis. Complimentary one hour online Mediation Meetings can be scheduled by calling 480-378-2686 or by emailing or online at


Husband and wife team, Michael and Karen co-founded The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation in 2014 to provide Arizona families with a healthier divorce option to litigation in the courts.
