Description of Practice

I am an anthropologist and conflict resolution consultant in Silicon Valley, but regularly traveling between my San Francisco Bay and Los Angeles offices. I focus on the psychology, social dynamics, and peacebuilding methodologies of interpersonal and intergroup conflicts.

As a conflict resolution consultant in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, I focus on core human needs, where many conflict specialists believe conflicts truly lie. I help individuals get clear on which needs they perceive as being threatened, how we might get those needs satisfied, and how to more effectively communicate with other parties involved in order to get everyone's needs met as sufficiently as possible.

Professional Background

Jeremy holds a Master's degree in Evolutionary Anthropology from California State University, Fullerton under anthropologist John Patton. His thesis research was in the evolution of religious cognition and intergroup conflict.

Jeremy also holds a Masters degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution, and Peacebuilding (NCRP) from California State University, Dominguez Hills. Currently, he is a researcher at Stanford University, where he leads research in social psychology and conflict resolution as an interdisciplinary effort between the Stanford Social Concepts Lab (Dept. of Psychology) and the Stanford Center on International Conflict & Negotiation (Dept. of Law).

Jeremy is also currently a Research Fellow at Stanford University, where he does interdisciplinary research in social psychology, negotiation, and conflict. As a conflict resolution consultant, Jeremy has mediated conflicts between couples, co-executives, and organizations, aiming as often as possible to transform relationships and create Win-Win resolutions for all parties involved. He also works as a personal development coach, helping individuals discover internal conflicts impeding them from living happy, fulfilling lives. His intrapersonal coaching practice is held under the brand Inner Warrior Coaching.
