In addition to these positions, Elizabeth runs her own boutique mediation training program where she mentors a limited number of students each year.

Fighters, Fleers, and Fixers

Posted on June 12, 2014 at 12:09pm 0 Comments

As a mediation trainer for fifteen years, I must have had these words come out of my mouth thousands of times: Don’t try to fix it for them.

We all want intimacy, but not many of us come by it very easily.…
