I am passionate about restorative practices, conflict resolution and relationship building.

I have worked in restorative justice/practices for almost 25 years as a program coordinator, facilitator, trainer and consultant. As a facilitator, I have worked extensively in schools, police agencies, the criminal justice system and communities. I have facilitate over 800 community conferences, ranging from grade one name-calling to homicide.

As a trainer, I have conducted over 75 3-day Community Conference Facilitator Trainer sessions in a variety of settings, including educators, police, lawyers, social workers, and community members.

Creating a Restorative Culture in Your School/Classroom/Agency is a one day workshop. Participants will learn how to implement the principles of restorative practices proactively, focusing on relationship building, global problem solving, responsibility/accountability, feeling identification, language patterns and circle meetings.
