mediation

As a facilitator and mediator, I use an open, systems-mapping approach that ackowledges that we are complex, multi-faceted individuals with overlapping passions, commitments and values.  

In my work with groups and individuals, I use an exploratory approach that has us engage in conversations - both at the onset and over the course of our work together.

Past-current contracts include:

  • I designed and led work-life balance retreats for the McGill University Health Center (2016, 2017)
  • I animated sessions throughout Quebec on patient-centered research for the Canadian Institutes on Health Research (2015)
  • I acted as project development specialist for the McGill Office for Campus Life and Engagement (2015)
  • I provided executive coaching services to the Artexte art center (2015)
  • I designed and led an organization-wide sustainability retreat for catering and event planning company Avocado (2012)
  • I led design charettes as part of a research project on the social housing development potential in NDG for the Corporation de dévelopement économique communautaire NDG (2008)  

I obtained my certification in conflict mediation (lvl 1 and 2) through the Conflict Analysis & Intervention program at the Center for Human Relations & Community Studies (Concordia University). The program was designed by Dr Ghislaine Guérard and led me to develop an appreciation for mapping a conflict and understanding different styles of communication.

Group process facilitation, conflict mediation and communication training were recurrent aspects of my work with the Center for Community Organizations (COCo). As a process faciliator, I have led strategic planning excercises, board trainings, communications planning and fundraising trainings. It was also while at COCo that I became familiar with the community mediation approach used by the St Stephen Community House in Toronto. I've received additional training at the Centre Québécois de PNL (Quebec Center for Neuro-Linguistic Programming) on Clean Language with Jennifer DeGandt.
