I value mediation as a process that builds up, and not tears down, a person. I believe it will help move us increasingly towards a civil society where we can accept and dialogue disparate views and solutions, and still come together. I enjoy helping people work through their conflict and seeing them feel empowered and heard. I want to help more to learn how to communicate in a conflict effectively and manage conflict better. I have completed Gottman Clinical Training Level 1 and 2 for couples counselling and also am a certified trainer for 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work.
