Welcome to JFrenzer Communications!
Facilitation Services and Skills Training.
JFrenzer Communication Services is a private firm operated by Jennifer Frenzer-Knowlton, JD.
Phone: 541 972 3771
My current area of focus:
Assisting nonprofits, community groups, intentional communities, work places and faith congregations with meetings, strategic planning, improving ease of communication, transitions and transformation of old patterns.
My services include meeting facilitation, communication skills training, strategic planning and communication coaching sessions. My approach is to offer clients services while providing an opportunity to develop their own facilitation and communication skills and strategies.
Philosophy and Approach:
My services are tailored to each client's situation. Many clients seek meeting facilitation services for ongoing regular operations while others are seeking immediate relief from conflict and may need intervention services or assistance with facilitation agreements. My focus is on skill building so that clients can learn facilitation skills to strengthen their own organization, group or workplace setting.
I have been facilitating, training and mediating for 10 years. Before starting my private practice, I worked as the Family and Youth Programs
Manager at Center for Dialogue and Resolution in Eugene (formerly Community Mediation Services). Tree Bressen of Eugene trained me in facilitation and I received formal mediation
training from the University of Oregon Knight Law School's mediation
certification program and completed several dispute specific
advanced mediation training including family mediation. I have trained and mentored new mediators and facilitators, youth and adults. I have served on the Eugene Human Rights Commission for the past three years and convened the Commission's work group on homelessness. I developed models for conflict management at transitional housing sites ( rest stops) for the homeless and have volunteered on several community projects. I am a member of
the Oregon Mediation Association. I graduated from law school at Mortiz College of Law at Ohio
State University in 1992 and received an undergraduate degree in
Economics from the University of Michigan in 1986.
Fees vary with the services provided and training packages are negotiable. Hourly rates are generally $120/hour for "table time" or time spent in session mediating or facilitating. Fees for administrative time spent on cases are billed at a lower rate than session time. Sliding scale is available.
