Conflict Resolution

I provide counseling to assist two or more individuals in a contentious familial or work relationship to learn new ways to listen and talk that will slow down and soften their communication and help them to hear one another. You will learn in this work that you don’t have to agree with someone to hear them and in fact, if you can agree to disagree, you can often find common ground in between your seemingly divergent points of view.

I adapt the couple’s dialogue process of the Imago Relationship Therapy toolkit for the parties in conflict and as you learn to hear one another you learn to reframe conflict as a teaching and learning opportunity.

The goal of this work is to promote and preserve relationships by discovering that winning can be losing and losing can be winning when the relationship becomes, over time, more important than being right.
