Rhonda Emonson is an experienced Family Therapist/Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner/Workplace Mediator and Conflict Coach and works predominately with complex, conflict entrenched parents as they participate in family dispute resolution or with employees involved in workplace conflict. After many years working with those in conflict, Rhonda has developed a curiosity about what is it that those in dispute need to more effectively participate in FDR? Keen to focus on the area of Conflict at a specialised level from a University that provides expertise programs and qualifications in this particular area, Rhonda commenced a PhD at James Cook University.


Rhonda lives in Albury NSW (on the NSW/VIC Border) and travels to Townsville once a year and has Supervision with Associate Professor Samantha Hardy and Dr Anna Blackman.
