I welcomed Nonviolent (Compassionate) Communication (NVC) into my life in 1998. It gives me more hope for turning conflict into collaboration and sadness to comfort than anything else I know. I've coached many people and offered dozens of workshops on dealing with difficult conversations. I love to explore with people how to connect with our own and others' feelings and needs so we can all learn how to be and do and have what makes our lives fulfilling.
I have an M.A. in Adult Education, and was a relationship columnist 16 years for Seattle's Active Singles Life. I was on the board of the Puget Sound Coaching Association for three years. A Personal and Professional Coach since 1998, I also bring to my practice the skills and awareness I have learned in Voice Dialogue, co-counseling, Nonviolent (Compassionate) Communication, and Enneagrams.
I am dedicated to each of us "fully expressing all of who we are." Four values guide my life: connection, contribution, discovery and freedom.
Contact me in Seattle at 206-938-8385 or email me. I offer a complimentary 30-minute coaching call, and work with people in person, by phone or by email to resolve personal and interpersonal issues in their lives. I am available for seminars and workshops. Visit my web site at Communication Coaching.
Send me an email to request a pdf of my book Pleasures and Ponderings.
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I value and use what I have learned in Nonviolent (Compassionate) Communication, the Law of Attraction, the work of Byron Katie, and many other books, teachings and experiences I have had. I know everyone does the best they know how to try and meet their needs, and when I connect with their feelings and needs, full and deep communication is possible.
I intend to practice and promote peace, ease, clarity and freedom with people I work with, in ways that work for them.
