Conflict Resolution: A Mindful Approach


A New Way to Resolve Conflict

If a conflict presents itself, do you choose to avoid it at all costs? Do you lash out at others and immediately defend your position? Or do you quietly seethe?

Whatever your current approach is and you are seeking new ways to resolve conflict, I can help you regain a sense of balance and control when you find yourself triggered. You’ll learn time tested strategies that will increase your ability to resolve difficult conversations and conflict with increased mastery while maintaining self-control. You will learn to recognize and change habitual patterns and untangle the needs behind what caused the triggering reaction between you, a family member and/or a colleague. Best of all, learn to maintain connection with others in the face of conflict so you are able to talk, listen, and problem solve with greater ease.

I facilitate workshops aimed at providing participants effective strategies to navigate conflict with greater ease and understanding while consciously maintaining a connection in the face of disagreement. I am passionate about contributing to a more peaceful tomorrow through my workshops as a response to the daily headlines of conflict occurring in every area of the globe.

The Life Design Program


Why Life Design?

Does fear of change keep you stuck in work you simply tolerate but have no passion for? Do you often wonder, “Is this all there is to my life?” Or is procrastination keeping you from getting things done that you talk about – but never get to?

Enrolling in the Life Design Course with me will awaken you to your sense of purpose and what you are here to do in this life, based on choices you consciously make. This effective approach to personal development brings into focus essential areas of your daily life such as; finance, career, health/well-being, fun and adventure, family, your physical environments, and relationships to assess for growth and transformation.

As you consciously set your goals in these critical life satisfaction areas, clear-cut steps are followed that provide you with increased productivity and fulfillment. Life Design helps you master responding to life’s shifting circumstances rather than being overcome by them. 

 Having taken this course more than once, I have achieved many of the goals I have set for myself and today live a more focused and purposeful life. I can honestly say that Life Design has provided me a very effective approach to my personal growth and has transformed my life into one that I wake up to each day with enthusiasm and joy. I subscribe to the words of C.S. Lewis who said; ““You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”  To find out more about the Life Design Program and read about me there, you can go to:

Welcome to The Mindful Zone, LLC! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and the services I have to offer you.  The Mindful Zone grew out my desire to offer workshops and one-on-one sessions for people interested in learning ways to respond to conflict with less stress. Never having courses offered in school that taught us how to engage in conflict situations with effective strategies, we generally fall back on techniques that likely don’t give us results we hope for. 

Taking the Life Design Course provided me with the tools to make my company a reality. Knowing how the Life Design Course benefitted me in the creation of my business and in accomplishing personal and professional goals, I became a Certified Life Design Coach to support others interested in creating a more fulfilling and enriched life. Today, as a freelance consultant, workshop presenter, and life coach, I offer clients one-on-one sessions and/or group workshops with customized format and materials that meet your unique situational needs. 

 So whether you’re looking for help navigating and resolving conflict with new and effective strategies or want to design your life and achieve greater satisfaction and purpose, I will support you along the way. Both of these offerings present you with ways to assess how you currently navigate your world, and will challenge held life perceptions as you begin to make conscious decisions that transform how you communicate and develop your best version of you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
