About Thellen

About Thellen Levy

The qualities that I bring to my practice are:

  • Experience
  • Efficiency
  • Empathy
  • Energy
  • Curiosity

I like to think of my approach to problem-solving as: compassionate efficiency!

I’m a parent and I understand how important it is to put children first, and how difficult it is to do that sometimes.

My commitment to you

  • I will look for practical and cost-effective solutions.
  • I will do what I say I’m going to do.
  • I will be responsive and  return phone calls and emails within 24 hours or let you know why I can’t
  • I will try to listen for understanding.

My values

  • I do this work because I have a deep commitment to changing the culture of conflict at the macro (professional) and micro (personal) levels.
  • This means moving from a “zero-sum” stance (my gain is necessarily your loss, it’s about winning) to a “both-and” stance (let’s explore ways in which both of our interests can be met, it’s about understanding ).
  • At the professional level this means working with you to help you identify and change unhelpful patterns, and working with like-minded colleagues to change the culture of conflict in our society.
  • At the personal level it means doing the same work I’m asking you to do – reflecting  on how I deal with conflict in unhelpful ways in my own life and working to change those patterns
