Mediation & Conflict Transformation

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” ~ Albert Einstein

Through my experience, I’ve learned over and over again that conflict doesn’t have to be something that we suppress and avoid at all costs. Conflict can in fact be a catalyst for change and deeper connection.  We can use our disagreements, differing perspectives, and moments of disconnection to harness creativity, unearth what matters most to us, and come together to restore harmony to our relationships.  

Through mediation and conflict transformation, I support people to:

  • discover the key factors in the conflict, so that there’s clarity and understanding about why the parties are gathered

  • reach agreements on next steps that are connected to the needs and values of everyone involved

  • build trust by providing a space for honest communication and empathic presence

  • bring reconnection and restoration to your team or community

  • give and receive challenging feedback consciously and constructively

  • shift relationships and group-culture from stuck and stale, to dynamic and fresh

  • if ongoing support is needed, evaluate follow through and results based on criteria that the parties collectively decide on

I work with:

  • Couples

  • Families

  • Organizations, Schools & Businesses
