I used to power-through issues by myself, thinking I was smart enough to tackle anything. Once I realized I had emotional blind spots that kept me from seeing life objectively and it took forever to make progress alone, I sought help from groups, counselors and coaches. I’ve been on a personal growth journey since the late 1990’s, and have made a lot of progress since.
I’ve been practicing NVC since 2002, and have been facilitating NVC since 2005. I received my CNVC trainer certification in 2014, which took about 3 years to complete. I received over 100 days training with experienced teachers Marshall Rosenberg, Mary Mackenzie, Robert Gonzales, Jim & Jori Manske, and others as part of my growth journey. NVC is my passion and way of life. I’m dedicated full time to bringing NVC to Silicon Valley.
In our sessions, we'll start with empathy for your current life experiences, enabling you to connect with your needs -- getting clear with the truth of your experience to free up emotional energy. You will experience the power of NVC as we learn it by doing.
Additionally, I can help you:
You don't have to go at it alone. I can help you develop skills to navigate conversations and find self-empowerment! Let's walk your growth journey together.

Intellectual Property Rights 8. Future Changes 9. Governing Law 1. Services Provided Consulting, Coaching, Training, Facilitation services are provided. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is not therapy -- not a clinical service. Nonviolent Communication is a "language of life" -- reference the book with that title by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. The purpose of coaching and training is to provide information about NVC related practices. While you may be invited to bring real life situations for practice, we will only work with feelings of intensity 5 or less out of 10 (being the most intense) -- i.e. not working with trauma. Consulting clients, coaching clients and workshop participants are responsible for their own personal emotional safety. 2. Prices And Payment Prices for workshops or events are listed in the website; promotional codes may provide discounts to stated prices. Hourly service prices are negotiated and agreed by all parties and confirmed via email. Payment is expected before the scheduled session begins.
