Restorative Justice for Victims, Perpetrators

and Others Impacted by Crime or Wrongdoing

If you have experienced harm or caused harm to someone else, I can help. Or, if you are an attorney, employer, or victim advocate who is interested in identifying ways to address and resolve a criminal act, I can help. 

I provide restorative justice meeting facilitation and individualized preparation and support to make a difference in the lives of all parties impacted by crime or wrongdoing. 

There are conflicts that are impossible for one person — a prosecutor, a judge, a parent, a victim, or a surviving family member — to fix alone. When safe, extensive, facilitated preparation is available, Restorative Justice meetings invite all parties impacted by harm to express responsibility to one another.

Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose.
