Congratulations, you’ve made the leap into retirement!  But wait – wasn’t this transition supposed to be easy?  You’re not alone if you are finding this in-between time to be way more difficult (and less intuitive) than you expected.  Join me and a small group of others, in Circle, to talk about where you currently find yourself, to practice becoming more spacious about where you are going, and to learn from each other.

Couples Strength Building Sessions

Family Conversation Circles

Family Conversation Circles

Families in conflict often find themselves shutting down and pulling apart, which can be overwhelming and extremely painful.  I work with families who have experienced complex trauma, who are not speaking to one another, who need to make difficult decisions together, or heal before a member of the family dies.  Family Conversation Circles utilize a curriculum created for your family, over 8-12 sessions, to strengthen safety, connection, and acceptance within the family system.  Working in Circle format provides space to hear and be heard, to see and be seen, and to know and be known by others in the family without risking judgment, denial, deflection or minimization.  


Restorative Family Circles can support change in areas such as these…

  • When a family blows up and members refuse to speak to one another

  • Imminent death of a family member and family healing is desired

  • Family business conflicts

  • Family foundation conflicts

Sessions take place over Zoom, are 1.5 hours long, require sequential sessions, and are HIPAA protected; cost estimate provided upon request.

Workpace Engagement

Workplace Engagement

I work with leaders and leadership teams to increase personal awareness, deepen engagement within the workplace, resolve conflict within work groups, and build community in and between teams.  My gentle, confident approach encourages even the prickliest employees to participate with a modicum of comfort.


Organizational leadership coaching can support change in areas such as:

  • Community building between leaders within the same company or industry

  • Increased self awareness for existing leadership

  • Communication skill building

  • Navigation of organizational change

  • Conflict between management and staff

Conflict Resolution Mediation

Conflict Resolution / Mediation

Conflict is difficult and it is unavoidable. I work with you and the person you are in conflict with in joint sessions; we work together to listen deeply, gain insight, honor the dignity of both parties, and find ways to repair.

  • Sibling issues related to aging parents, asset distribution

  • Conflicts with an adult child

  • Workplace struggles with a colleague or team

  • Cycling conflicts with a partner

What my clients say about working with me

"I worked with Ricka to learn how to decrease stress and take care of myself. I was not taking care of myself and felt stressed out, tired, crabby and unhealthy and that carried over into my family life. Ricka helped me learn techniques to manage my stress at work to get that good feeling back."
