This is your private diplomatic service to guide you from conflict to common ground. I believe that every person deserves to be respected, to be heard, and to be in charge of his or her fate. Based on these principles, we will address your conflict as quickly and efficiently as possible, and as slowly and thoroughly as necessary, to find a meaningful and lasting solution.

If you are working with me to improve an ongoing relationship such as with a family member, friend, co-worker, employee, or business partner, we will develop a customized approach that will help disentangle your particular conflict situation. We will have a series of dialogues to see what has been working well and what hasn’t, find out what’s keeping you stuck, and uncover what’s most important for everyone involved. We may do some individual coaching to replace old habits with more productive ones. Over time, we will shape a new beginning for your relationship.

In a one-time conflict where we are working to avoid or end litigation, I will likely have a series of private conversations with each person involved. We may also have one or more all-hands-on-deck meetings if you’re comfortable with that and we think it would be fruitful. Unless you ask me to, I will not quit until you can make a good decision on how to end your conflict.

Please contact me to set up a free and confidential 15-minute consultation about how I can help.

Without dialogue, humans are fated to walk in the darkness of their own dogmatic self-righteousness. Dialogue is the lamp by which we dispel that darkness, lighting and making visible for each other our steps and the path ahead.
