About Kimanne Foraker-Koons

“This is more than just a business to me. I believe in what I do and I enjoy the fact that, through mediation and strategizing sessions, I can assist people to make differences in their own lives. Through these processes, I can assist people in resolving their own conflicts while teaching them a new and valuable approach to Conflict resolution and problem solving. They can learn better communication skills which will assist them throughout their lives. In doing so, I help teach them to support themselves through very difficult and challenging transitions and conflicts in their lives. All this can be accomplished in such a way that there should be no losers; one person should not win at the expense of the other”.
