Hello! My name is Katie Tarasewicz and I am the founder of Crossing Jordan. I am a born and raised Wisconsinite, art loving, spirit filled, wellness minded, mother and wife. I have my Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in Conflict Resolution. I have studied courses in Mediation, Arbitration, Neuroscience, Difficult Conversations, Negotiation and Theories of Conflict. I feel my life’s purpose is to help people articulate their emotions and perspective into productive conversations, when life throws us curve balls. My passion is helping people improve their life by teaching emotional intelligence and conflict resolution techniques to navigate every day personal and/or business conflict. The values that guide me are integrity, respect, vulnerability, honesty and empathy.
The name, Crossing Jordan, symbolizes my faith and how we sometimes just need to get our feet wet and step into the circumstances we are faced with instead of avoidance. Crossing Jordan is named after the story in the Bible of the Israelite’s trusting God, as He performed the miracle of parting the water. There are times in life when we need to be the first ones to step forward toward communicating to heal, to work towards forgiveness or to have our voice heard. It can stretch our comfort and be intimidating! That’s why I’m here; to coach you across the “river”. We will walk across the water together, bridge the barriers to constructive conversation and allow you the strength and capability to express yourself.
Welcome to my site. I’d love the opportunity to walk with you toward resolution with whatever it is your facing.
