I am certified in several different types of mediation and have worked in divorce courts and small claims courts in Massachusetts. I greatly enjoy supporting individuals and couples in clarifying and listening to their inner voices as well as dialoguing with significant others.
My foundation is Nonviolent Communication, the conflict resolution work of Marshall Rosenberg.
"Jenny provides a safe, honest reflection of what I am saying so that I can figure out what is going on inside me."
I am committed to "going upstream" before a relationship breaks down, coaching individuals and couples in the language of feelings and needs and how to communicate them to significant others.
Getting in touch with your feelings and needs in any situation can be transformational.
I use my training and experience in the fields of
mediation and conflict resolution, as well as an
understanding of Five Element personality types, to work with you in order to better understand your own and others' behavior and to practice specific techniques to relate to others with greater ease.
"My wife and I are doing surprisingly well since we saw you. I’m feeling hopeful. Thank you so much for holding space for us."-EC, Massachusetts
Each of the Five Elements of Chinese medicine (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal), has a unique energy and traits.
Knowing which Elements are most active in your own and others' personalities can provide an epiphany into understanding yourself and others, leading to greatly enhanced wellbeing and much more harmonious relationships.
I have worked frequently with couples as well as with parents to better understand their children and other family members.
