Most people in conflict tell me they want to be seen, heard, and understood. When you are in the throes of disagreement, it is sometimes difficult to acknowledge someone else when you do not feel understood yourself.
That is where I can help.
You have a reason for feeling what you feel, doing what you do, and thinking what you think. After I acknowledge your experience, we start clarifying where you wish to go and exploring options for how to get there.
Mediation is fundamentally about self-determination. You decide what steps you take and when.
Moving from discomfort to comfort sometimes takes a little help.
Let Bruckner Mediation help.
