Saving American Families



My name is Joe Ferra and I have been a Mediator with Family Mediation Associates since 2004. Having received advanced mediation training at UCLA, and professional mentorship under the highly respected John Biancardi, I have been honored to serve as the past President for the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the Kern County Bar Association and as Superior Court Mediation Panelist for both Kern and Los Angeles Counties.

We provide Mediation in Bakersfield, CA and Mediation in Ventura, CA designed to help families resolve conflicts quickly and affordably with the goal of saving headache, heartache, time, and money. If you are experiencing any variety of family conflict that you’re having difficulty resolving, this path has been developed specifically for you.

Our main objective is to facilitate resolution of family conflicts and reconciliation for couples struggling with their marriage. Our process has been proven to quickly assist with stopping relationship deterioration. If you are having difficulty in your family relationships, even with the help of professional counseling and spiritual guidance, we can be of assistance.

If you are in the family service profession and your efforts with a particular family are not achieving the success you intend, I would like to sincerely encourage you to partner with us and refer your clients to a Mediator in Bakersfield, or Mediator in Ventura, so that we may join you and assist you in providing strong and supportive supplemental resources that may prove effective in helping you and your clients reach their goal.
