We help people in conflict, many, many kinds of conflict in a wide variety of situations. Some are long term, deeply seated conflicts; some do not seem as serious. Some involve the court and legal system; some do not. Some with people who are ready and willing to work things out; some with people who are angry and discouraged. We have helped people have important conversations and resolve disputes including those between:
- Spouses and partners
- Business owners and consumers
- Parents and teens
- Landlords and tenants
- Roommates and house mates
- Boards, staffs, and groups trying to work together
- Residents and officials
