I have come to believe that conflict is not only inevitable, but often an essential catalyst for change and growth. How we understand and manage conflict, however, dictates whether it leads to combat or, alternatively, to the learning of new and healthier ways to conduct our relationships.
In my work with clients, my focus is on their strengths, their capacity to change and grow, and — with the appropriate support — to discover their own solutions and direction.
