Getting Started


Before we get started:

Step 1: We meet and get to know each other.

Step 2: Depending on where you are in the conflict cycle, we talk together or separately about the issues that are the most important to you.

Step 3: We propose a process and explain it to you so your choices are clear and decision to enter are sound.

Step 4: Rates are sliding scale. We discuss and agree on the our responsibilities thoroughly before we start.  Once we make an agreement to proceed, we set a schedule.

CCS operates on a non-profit intention.  Incoming funds are tracked and placed back into the consultancy for things such as space rental, communications and planning.  $35-150 per hour, based on a sliding scale.

Initial Consultation
Our first conversation is free, but we will determine if this process is right for you. Criteria are:

  • Willingness to find a solution to your question: Which ever process you gravitate to, it is for the purposes of finding a way through, to resolve a puzzle in your lives.
  • Agreement to ground rules: There are basic expectations and responsibilities you as the client and I as your provider can hold for each other.  Before agreeing to engage, we will want to make sure we understand these.
  • Your comfort zone: How you would like to proceed in terms of pace, process, environment?  This will tailor your plan to have the best chance of success.
