 Testimonials

"Jessie was a wonderful facilitator for our Conflict & Repair Dialogue. She helped us to communicate effectively with one another so that we could work through the issues at hand. Jessie provided a comfortable safe space for us to express the things we needed to express. She also helped to offer tools and frameworks to help with future communication issues that might arise as well as a communication maintenance plan for our family. We are so thankful to have had an opportunity to work with her and are grateful for the immense help she provided our family."

"Jessie did a wonderful job facilitating our group's Healing Circle. She was able to establish, in such a beautiful way, a solid foundation for our staff to be vulnerable with one another. She intentionally incorporated some skill development so that we all walked away with a couple of tools to utilize within our future work. She was humble, patient and passionate with her approach and we were so very pleased with the successful outcome."

"The Community-Building/Conflict & Repair Dialogue was necessary for our group to get through some very difficult times.  We did not have trust, we could not have open dialogue, and at times it was even toxic and difficult to attend meetings.  We all wanted things to get better but we didn’t really know how.  I am grateful we were able to go through the circle because we were finally able to be open and honest in a way that didn’t feel hurtful, we were able to think about others perspectives with empathy, and take responsibility for hurt we may have unintentionally caused others.  I feel closer and more trusting of my colleagues because of this process and would recommend it for any type of conflict.  We are now able to move forward and do the work we need to do with new tools and a sense of renewed trust and energy! I would say that I learned a lot about non violent communication and the benefits of using a restorative framework in order to build relationships and handle conflict and repair. Through Jessie's facilitation, it was clear she had a lot of experience with different groups and she was able to read what we needed as a group very well so we could get the outcomes we were hoping for."

I can recommend her services without reservation!"
