Adriana Scott

With years of experience in conflict resolution, my vision has been to create a platform where individuals, communities, and organizations can find effective solutions to their conflicts.

My Background

My background is steeped in the fields of mediation, somatic trauma therapy and community engagement. I hold a Master’s degree in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution from Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies.

With a lifelong commitment to cultivate a culture where conflict is no longer seen as a hindrance to progress, but rather an opportunity for positive social change. I strive to empower people of color to embrace conflict, difference and  the healing of trauma as a means of sustaining interpersonal relationships.

I’ve worked in various domains including organizational mediation, community disputes, family conflicts, landlord-tenant mediation, restorative justice programs, coaching and training. My diverse experience has shaped my approach, combining empathy, dialogue, and trauma-based support to create tailored solutions.

My Approach & Philosophy

My approach to conflict resolution is founded on empathy, dialogue, and a profound understanding of human relationships. By addressing the underlying issues and emotions that fuel disputes, I guide all parties towards a lasting resolution that respects individual needs and values. My philosophy is succinctly captured in the belief that “Conflict is not a barrier, but a gateway to understanding and growth.” Rather than seeing disputes as obstacles, I view them as opportunities to strengthen relationships, build bridges, and promote personal & communal growth.
