For the past eleven years, the San Mateo Union High School District has been grateful for Teresa Rose’s work with our adult staff as a conflict resolution facilitator and coach. Our staff frequently tell me that she brings needed clarity to complex situations they face in serving our District, and helps participants move forward toward meaningful resolutions and relief from stress. Teresa creates an environment of trust and safety with her sensitive listening. She provides insightful, practical feedback and encouragement. I highly recommend Teresa both for her skills and her warm, genuine way of being.”

Teresa started her empathic communication journey with me 20 years ago as a young mom wanting to resolve family conflicts by taking the Nonviolent Communication mediation and conflict coaching weekly classes that Ike Lasater and I were offering then. She then furthered her skills by participating in three years of our Mediate Your Life training program. I’m delighted to have witnessed how she has grown on this path through the years in her skills and abilities and how she applies NVC mediation in her own life, with clients, and in her community. Thank you, Teresa, for what you bring to the world.”

For three years, I supervised Teresa at the San Mateo County Small Claims Court where we helped parties voluntarily create their own solutions in their dispute in lieu of a court’s judgment. Teresa demonstrates the perfect balance of deep empathic listening and tenacity to guide individuals, couples, or groups to new places of increased clarity.”

In my leadership role with 70 Presbyterian churches in the Bay Area, I have watched Teresa skillfully lead churches through NVC conflict coaching workshops for over seven years. Teresa taught the congregants communication skills to use with one another that increased listening and assisted groups to get to the heart of their values. Using examples from her own life and inspiring group activities, Teresa taught participants how to identify feelings and needs, describe experiences and perspectives, and communicate in an empathetic and respectful manner. Teresa modeled deep listening with others, both one-on-one and in group settings. The participants were enthusiastically engaged in Teresa’s process and were eager to learn more. If you are looking for a gentle and caring, yet strong and knowledgable guide, I highly recommend Teresa as a coach.”

This testimonial and letter of recommendation is for Teresa Rose of TeresaRoseCoaching.com is written jointly by my daughter and myself. 

I sought the help of Teresa due to her proficiency in conflict resolution. I had been estranged from my daughter and consequently my grandchildren as well due to some deep seated issues which had remained unresolved.

After gaining the approval by my daughter to undertake joint therapy, I engaged the services of Teresa with my daughter’s approval and I am happy to report that after four individual sessions and one joint session, we are now on a stable footing with trust issues having been resolved while continuing to build trust. 

We found the level of integrity and the methodologies utilized by Teresa beyond reproach. Her level of patience and caring  was most inspirational and we are both extremely grateful for her expertise in helping us to grow towards enjoying positive and meaningful expressions in our relationship towards each other and in our communities.

We highly recommend Teresa for any individuals or organizations seeking solutions for conflict resolutions.”
