My Focus Areas
What to expect from my process
Toxic Workplace Behavior
I consult with professionals experiencing sexual harassment, bullying, and other forms of toxic workplace behavior.
Let's work together to explore the outcomes you want and what options you have to improve the situation within your organization or move on safely.
If you decide you want to address the behavior, I can help you identify allies within the organization who may be able to help shield you from retaliation and make sure the issue is taken seriously and addressed promptly.
Many people who bring these kinds of issues to their managers or HR teams are frustrated by the process and find that they're often worse off for bringing the complaint forward. I can help guide you past the common pitfalls and set you up to get the outcomes you want to get back to work.
I consult with people who have experienced rape, sexual assault, or domestic violence who are open to seeking accountability from the person who harmed them if we can make it safe for them to do so.
Based on the outcomes you're seeking, I'll suggest next steps to move towards safety, healing, and closure for you and accountability for the perpetrator.
Let's work together to understand the risks that the perpetrator might try to retaliate against or undermine you, take steps to keep you safe, limit the perpetrator's ability to undermine or threaten you, and recruit allies to help "call them in" for a restorative justice process.
The goal of a restorative justice process is for the perpetrator to come to terms with the harm they've caused, apologize for the impact they had on you, and take steps to make amends, support your healing, and avoid causing future harm.
I consult with people struggling to resolve conflicts with their spouses, romantic partners, cofounders, coworkers, housemates, relatives, friends, etc.
I start with an introductory call with each of you separately in order to understand your perspective and the outcomes you want.
Next I'll meet with all parties together in person if you're based in the San Francisco Bay Area or over video chat if not.
During the mediation I'll ask each of you to reflect on why the relationship is important to you and what you like and respect about each other before delving into the conflict.
Each of you will get a chance to share your perspective on what generated the conflict and we'll work collaboratively to create mutual understanding and identify a path forward that works for all parties.
