Gwenn Schurgin O’Keeffe, M.D., J.D., has been one of the leading voices in digital media and internet safety for twenty years. Initially as a pediatrician and now a mediator and coach, her active engagement with parents, community and medical groups globally has helped raise awareness on the multitude of health and legal issues facing our families, digital kids and teens.
Dr. Gwenn’s journey into mediation coaching began in her training as a pediatrician where she learned the skills to communicate with families and help them resolve difficult family and life situations. She continued to hone those skills over her 25-year career. Whether in practice or as a digital health expert, Dr. Gwenn’s goal was to help families live their lives by their own paths. O’Keeffe Family Mediation and Coaching’s aim is to continue to help families – parents, individuals, teens – in their quest to achieve their own goals. To continue to help people grow, Dr. Gwenn continues her own education and is also a life coach, nutrition coach and holistic health coach.
Dr. Gwenn recognized during law school that combining her pediatrics training and digital health expertise with her mediation training and techniques would allow her to help more people – to bridge a gap that was missing for too many families Noted in law school for her skills in mediation and conflict resolution, Dr. Gwenn decided to continue her pursuit in mediation after law school and is now trained in general mediation, divorce mediation, elder and family mediation.
She has completed an intense divorce mediation practicum and volunteers regularly in the Massachusetts District Small Claims Court. O’Keeffe Family Mediation and Coaching offers mediation services to families on any type of family issue, large or small, for families, teens, parents and individuals.
In addition to her expertise in mediation and coaching, Dr. Gwenn is leading expert in the digital life of kids and teens. She’s contacted often by professional, school, parenting and media outlets for lectures, interviews and input. Her award winning book, CyberSafe, provides information to families on the impact of the digital world of growing kids. Her digital health website, www.pediatricsnow.com, was one of the first of its kind to provide families with reliable health information on the web since 2005. O’Keeffe Family Mediation and Coaching will continue Dr. Gwenn’s digital health services to families who need help in their own family as well as to professional groups, the media and community seeking input, interviews, training or speaking engagements.

I love the expression that life can be bitter-sweet. While we all strive for the sweet times, lately we’ve been tossed a huge helping of bitter with COVID and events we can’t control. Talk about stressful!
