I am so glad you stopped by to meet me and our team at JFox Mediation & Coaching! We are a strong team and are here to support, encourage, and empower no matter the issues you or your loved ones may be currently examining in your life.
My main area of expertise is building and maintaining healthy communication and relationships in our families, schools, businesses, and communities. For over a decade, I have been researching, training, and working directly in the field of Restorative Practices, an emerging social science that studies human dignity, healthy relationships, and connected communities.
Through many years of practice as a school psychologist, consultant, mediator, and relationship coach, I am passionate about discovering the factors that most help people repair, heal, transform conflict, break patterns that no longer serve us, and move forward in relationships and in life. I find great joy in working with people from all walks of life and ethnicities, empowering them to gain renewed perspectives and brainstorm solutions to life challenges.
Relationships are complex and are affected by a variety of factors in our lives. A one size fits all approach will never work, given we are individuals with diverse backgrounds, personalities, cultural norms, genetics, experiences, and needs. We bring all of our experiences and stories, told and untold, with us when we enter relationships with one another, whether at work, school, home, church, or in the community.
In other words -- given the complexities of human relationships -- conflict, misunderstandings, and hurt in relationships are NORMAL and TYPICAL to the human experience, yet the skills needed to heal and transform conflicts are rare. Frequently, we acquire tunnel vision and hyper-focus on the problems rather than look for the possibilities. Learning and growing through interpersonal difficulties and creating opportunities for healing is a great option to consider!
Our motto at JFox Mediation & Coaching is, “No one EVER needs to suffer in silence or alone.” We heal best WITH each other.
The human experience is about growing, learning, and evolving. Come on a journey with us. We are accepting, non-judging, helpful, and supportive! Contact us to find out more. We look forward to meeting you! Dr. Jan :-)
