I help enemies become partners to build a better world.
I grew up in a difficult household with a schizophrenic father and a mother who worked from dawn to dusk to support her three daughters in war-torn Israel.
I was 7 years old when I discovered my ability to empathically understand different perspectives and mitigate conflicts between my mother, father and my sisters.
30 years later, when I moved from Israel to Canada, I decided to devote myself to conflict resolution and focus on topics that are tearing our world apart – the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change and racism.
I interviewed over 100 people on both sides of deeply contested hot topics, I depolarize heated conversations on social media, and I host the Effective Convesations podcast that explores the triggers and biases that cause deep rifts in society.
I also offer my services as a conflict resolution coach to heart-centered influencers and politicians working to build a better world.
I live with my husband and two kids in beautiful Nelson, BC.
- He called me a bitch! What would you do?
- He wins the conversation but not my heart
- When the search for truth turns into anxiety
- Lost a friend to vaccination
- A new man awaits to be born
