Conflict coaching is an hourly service, usually offered by a single conciliator, to an individual in conflict. Conflict coaching is provided through face-to-face meetings, telephone, or video-conferencing.

Conflict coaching involves teaching biblical principles related to peacemaking, including repentance, honest confession, loving confrontation, and forgiveness. In some instances conflict coaching helps individuals learn how to resolve conflict without requiring conflict mediation.

When conflict mediation is necessary, pre-mediation coaching is provided to help individuals prepare for a mediation process, using a series of prep assignments. Post-mediation coaching is then provided as needed for ongoing support.

FEES & Expenses

Once a careful assessment is made of the situation, a detailed Fees and Expenses Estimate is provided that itemizes the expected fees and expenses likely to be incurred. Cliff's standard rate for local services is $120/hour and $130/hour for out-of-town services. Additional conciliators are generally billed at $75/hour or less.

A Professional Courtesy Discount is available for individuals in vocational ministry, non-profits, and churches.

In most cases, a retainer is collected up front, and any unused portion of the retainer is refunded after services are rendered. A non-refundable Filing Fee of $200 is required to open a case.
