Where you live and who you live with are important. Having a comfortable, safe and enjoyable place to call home impacts all other aspects of your life. Often achieving this takes work and a willingness to have difficult conversations. Conversations that establish goals, set boundaries and address mutual respect. Conversations that include money, other resources and shared responsibilities.

I can help you have these conversations with: Landlords; Tenants; Roommates; Housemates; Family and extended family; Friends.
