“Colette is a highly skilled mediator, who has a natural ability to connect with people and guide them through conflict.  She shows her clients compassion, empathy, and understanding.”
— Mediation colleague

"I’ve been privileged to work with Colette for over 3 years, observing first-hand the positive connection she creates with all parties involved in disharmony. Her communication skills help clarify the problems, assisting participants in moving forward towards a better understanding of each other. Her expertise in supporting parties in conflict to work towards a sensible solution demonstrates her understanding of the nature and needs of conflict resolution. Her background in grief counseling makes her particularly adept in working with hurting people."
— Mediation colleague

“Colette was exceptionally helpful with putting into words what I was sensing or feeling, and she helped me define where I was at.  She had really good intuition for the feeling and atmosphere in the room, and when each party needed a pause, or a private check in.  She moved us forward through the mediation process with a logical, efficient approach that didn’t rush us, with really practical steps to help us build a plan for the future, with follow up and tools to work with.”
— Mediation client 

“You have insightful wisdom that I have remembered and carried into many situations since then.  Life changing wisdom and spiritual intuition, mixed with so much empathy and compassion—you were safe, you cared, and you were wise. I knew I could trust you.”
— Mediation client

“I felt like Colette could see right through into the deepest part of the situation—she is really intuitive about what is going on.  She helped us see what the other person was trying to say when we couldn’t communicate well with each other, and that helped us understand each other better.  She gently but persistently moved us towards greater self-awareness and self-examination, without triggering defensiveness or defiance.”
