Dr. Garzitto is an expert conflict coach. Her unique strategies gave me the skills, and the practice to level up my communication skills. She provided a safe and confident space to learn and then implement clear approaches that focused on positive outcomes and respectful dialogue in a difficult situation that I had with a colleague, who I had been struggling with! She provided me with the courage to engage in. Her approach is both professional and playful – two qualities that come in handy when working with conflict!

I had the pleasure of meeting Emi through a Board and Staff workshop wherein she enlightened us all with her conflict alchemist philosophy. She taught us the benefits of healthy conflict and how we have the power within ourselves to transform negative connotations around conflict and learn and grow through our ability to be present. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and asked Emi to present to a wider audience of not for profits struggling with new ways of communicating with staff, colleagues and clients during these unprecedented times. Emi facilitated a conversation with 38 representatives from the not-for-profit sector and within an hour a half provided the group with strategies and tactics to help common communication challenges all well doing so with integrity, humor and data informed strategies. I cannot recommend Emi enough!

Emi facilitated a workshop on conflict management strategies for the CPHR FV Mentoring Program participants. She is very knowledgeable in her work and has an energetic personality. Her strong passion for what she does came through and energized the group. She drew conversation from the attendees, which made it a better learning experience for all. She incorporated role-play scenarios, making it more fun and a great approach for applying and retaining the information. We enjoyed learning from Emi and will definitely bring her back for another workshop.

Emi is a talented and gifted holistic healer whose work has helped me understand myself and the relationships I have created. Her professional training allows her to assist clients on all levels with all problems. She has a unique way of looking at the body and seeing how we create energy patterns by the way we look at life and what we believe about ourselves. These thoughts and belief patterns show up in the physical body, in the mind and in the spirit. We are often completely unaware of what is going on behind the scenes in our lives and I have been fortunate to have Emi help me see what is really going on in my life. She helped me understand what changes needed to be made and corrected many of the imbalances she found. There is usually homework to support the balancing she has done and it must be done for optimal change to take place. I feel totally blessed to have her work on my body and have made many positive changes in my life due to the balancing work Emi has given me. It is best to have regular sessions to keep on top of life’s stresses and strains!
