Conflict Management, Communication, and Forgiveness Coaching—Conflict resolution for one. When you want to strengthen your communication and conflict resolution skills for your personal or professional life, or when you need to get ready for a challenging conversation. With support and guidance from a coach, you can gently look at your own attitudes and beliefs that may not be serving you. Expanding your own communication skills “toolkit” and changing your responses to conflict can transform relationships, even if the other person makes no conscious efforts to change. Coaching sessions available by telephone as well as face to face. Please read my article on communication coaching, (also called conflict coaching) for more information.
Mediations—creating a safe place to communicate and resolve conflict. With support, guidelines and facilitation, miraculous breakthroughs in your mutual understanding are possible.

Mediation looks to the future, how we can let go of the past and communicate better starting now. Available by phone or Skype as well as in person.
