Schedule Free Consoltation

Sessions take place over the phone or in my office in downtown Chico, CA.

In this free session you will experience the relief of being heard for your challenges without judgment, have the opportunity to ask me questions about my work, talk about cost, and if there’s time start receiving some free communication coaching.



Frequently asked questions:


“My partner and I keep arguing and it’s been pretty ugly lately. Will you offer this free session for both of us at the same time?”

My preference is that we start by scheduling the free 45-minute session/consultation for each of you separately. I find that we can make more progress when I have time to connect with each person first. If you are in a tense moment right now, talking with me individually can bring a lot of insight and help you both to calm down.

“I am part of the LGTBQ community and I am also polyamorous. Will you judge me and tell me I need to change my relationship style.”

I welcome clients of all relationship styles, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, etc.

I will never assume I know how and whom you should love. On that note, the further we go from cultural expectations the more communication skills and emotional support we need. In turn, the more we are able to communicate effectively and with an open heart the more we are able to create the life we really want, and on our own terms. I have experienced this in my own life.

What People Are Saying

“I appreciate Jonah’s skill in holding a formal structure with flexibility in a challenging personal situation. Even when the emotional intensity was high, I sensed his ability to stay centred and treat both me and the other party with compassion. He also navigated several choice points with sensitivity and aliveness, ultimately bringing the decisions back to me and the other party so that we were empowered to move forward. Jonah’s approach is a simple and effective strategy to bridge any kind of gap in interpersonal communication or connection.”
~ Lauren Brown

“I’ve lived in intentional community for years, gleaned some tools along the way, and developed some skills that will last my lifetime. After living in a large community of about 20 where we all brought so much to the table, practiced Non Violent Communication and consensus decision making – we still faced conflict. Conflict is always an opportunity for growth, but sometimes we need mediation or skilled facilitation to guide us through our emotionally charged conflict. I found myself in the latter situation and called upon Jonah to mediate. He was the only person I could think of who can remain neutral, hear both sides, and offer navigational tools that allowed us to address and deconstruct the obstacle in a safe and calm manner. I have witnessed him work through some demanding and challenging situations where I doubted we could get through, but his ability to stay grounded, clear, patient and calm truly facilitated movement and some deep healing. I highly recommend Jonah Richman to anyone seeking genuine conflict resolution or mediation. This is one of the greatest gifts Jonah has to share with his community and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
~ Katrina Djberof

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jonah on a few different occasions. I have found each time to be enlightening and helpful. He has helped me gather my thoughts, gain some skills, and move through some difficult challenges. These new skills I have learned have helped me confront conflict much earlier, making it easier to move through. Jonah is confident and professional.”
