Anjali believes in understanding people and situations holistically and brings valuable life lessons in balance and harmony to her work as a mediator and astrologer. She is a certified business and employment, elder care and family/divorce mediator who believes in the transformative approach, a model that aims to bring self-empowerment and recognition to those in a dispute.
Anjali also works in the arts arena, handling disputes around nonprofit or LLC formation, intellectual property issues (copyright, trademark, patents, etc.) and negotiating resources for artists. She is a member of the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council and the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies. Passionate about youth education, she has taught social-emotional learning at after school programs and is available for Education mediation (boards, special ed) for schools and universities. She also trained in Crisis Response from the PA Keystone Crisis Intervention Team.
She originally received a scholarship to study metaphysical approaches to conflict at the Harvard Program on Negotiation and has extensively studied evolutionary astrology since 2006. She enjoys coaching individuals and relationships towards well-being through the astrological lens, which helps her better understand everyone’s needs and values. Her goal is to evolve conflict experiences into ones that bring peace and meaning by guiding constructive changes in mindsets and beliefs through experiential and conversational learning.
Anjali received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University, her J.D. from University of Pittsburgh School of Law and her M.S. in Higher Education, Integrative Studies from Capella University.
